High-Performance Color for Beauty Lovers Who Rock
By: James Vincent
From Debbie Harry to David Bowie, from the punks at CBGB to the mods of West Village, the impact of New York City's downtown music scene is the stuff of legend. Deeply rooted in this culture of creativity and self-expression, Ardency Inn offers edgy, high-performance products for music and makeup fans alike. To capture Ardency Inn’s stylish spirit, we worked with beauty writer and downtown darling Stella Rose Saint Clair on an editorial that pays homage to the beauty rituals of an It Girl getting ready for a night out in NYC.
To create a high-impact cat eye, Stella applies Modster Easy Ride Supercharged Liquid Liner, the boldest, richest black liquid liner on the market. The matte finish and waterproof formula last all night long.
On her lips and cheeks, Stella wears Modster Long Play Supercharged Lip Color in Lovecat. Lovecat is a deep red with balanced blue undertones that works on any skin tone. We pair it with Modster Easy Ride Supercharged Liquid Liner and a soft wash of Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments in Sunday from lash to brow for a classic look with a modern edge.
Here, Stella pairs Modster Long Play Supercharged Lip Color in Lucky with Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner in Jade. The matte petrol green eyeliner is the perfect complement to the warm, vivid pink lip.
On Stella’s lips, Modster Long Play Supercharged Lip Color in Ladder 15 offers a bold, bright red with orange undertones. We add an unexpected pop of blue at the lashline with Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner in True Blue, which whitens and brightens the eyes. For a softer, more romantic look, layer a line of Modster Easy Ride Supercharged Liquid Liner along the lashes.
Stella wears Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner in Lilac to capture the season's statement eye look. It is paired with Modster Long Play Supercharged Lip Color in Valentine on the lips and cheeks, which adds a soft kiss of color without drawing focus away from the eyes.
For more drama and impact, we add in Modster Manuka Honey Infused Pigments in Orchid from crease to lash in the look below.
Here, Stella wears an updated take on the classic smoky eye. Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner in Grey along the waterline adds a sexy, smudgy edge that feels more runway than reality TV. We add Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments in Rose Gold on the lid from crease to lash and along the bottom lashline for a smoldering, fashion-forward look. Modster Long Play Supercharged Lip Color in Kids in America adds soft color to lips and cheeks for a look that goes easily from day in the office to night on the town.
Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments serve double duty here as both liner and shadow. A wash of Disco applied with a dry brush from crease to lash creates a silvery-purple base. We apply Disco along the lashline with a wet angled brush for a smoky cat eye. Ardency Inn Modster Lip Balm & Primer gives lips a matte-yet-moisturized finish while offering slight color correction. This creates a nude lip that lets the skin’s natural tones shine through.
