"The makeup look at Bibhu Mohapatra was inspired by the women in fashion photographer Helmut Newton's iconic photographs," said Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer. "Instead of doing the classic bold eyes and lips, we made everything a bit more natural. The look is very glamorous and the perfect complement to the chic pieces in Bibhu's spring collection."
Charlotte first prepped skin with Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation to create a smooth, flawless canvas. She then worked Maybelline Fit Me! Bronzer in Medium Bronze onto cheekbones for a touch of color. Next, she dusted Maybelline Fit Me! Powder over the skin to eliminate shine. Charlotte created a smoky eye using Maybelline's Eye Studio Color Explosion Luminizing Eyeshadow in Caffeine Rush using the three deepest brown shades from a rich palette of neutrals. She blended the shadows over the lid and out past the outer corners of the eyes. Charlotte filled and winged lashes out with Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies Flared Mascara in Very Black. Brows were filled in and sculpted with Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil. "A well-groomed brow is very important to this look," said Charlotte. She then created a toned down version of Helmut Newton's signature red lip using Maybelline Shine Sensational Lip Gloss in Cherry Kiss.
“Bibhu was inspired by Helmut Newton—the clothes were graphic and showed some great skin. To complement the designs, we went with a strong yet simple ballerina hair style to allow the clothes and girls to shine.” -Rutger for Cutler/Redken Salon
When your hair is completely dry, brush through it with a Mason Pearson brush to smooth.
Then create a ponytail in the center of the back of the head and tie it off with an elastic.
Backcomb and tease the length of your ponytail for a lighter texture and grip.
Twist your hair around the ponytail in a tight bun and pin with French “U” pins. Finish the look off with Redken Quick Dry 18 Instant Finishing Spray.
