Glint and Glimmer
Making up the faces of our Blanche Macdonald Spring Fashion Showcase! We’re taking a trip into the minds (and kits) of the Makeup team behind the scenes of our 2014 Fashion Design graduate show! Concept by Blanche Fashion Makeup Director/graduate/NOBASURA boss man Jon Hennessey, keyed by Makeup Instructor, the lovely Win Liu and executed with the help of fellow Makeup grads Marina Hume and Catlyn Jeong!
“The collection was mostly in neutral greys and beige to whites, so the concept for makeup was to have a fresh, fun, but not too avant garde look. "Mix" was a key word for application! Reddish brown shadow (Ben Nye "Coco Rose")was used all over the top lid blending into eye brows, and all over bottom of the eyes a warmer darker brown (Ben Nye "Cork") was blended into outer and inner corners on top, and outer corner on bottom. Everything was matte at this point. I mixed silver and purple MUFE Aqua Creams (04 and 26) to create a pale lavender for the inner corner on eyes, and top it off with lavender shadow from MAC (All That Iris). I also brushed this onto the center of lids. Lots of black mascara for the top lashes!
On the lips I mixed a frosted pale lavender with frosted dark mauve (Cinema Secret "Pink Satin" and "Millennium")for the base, and loaded it up with silver and purple glitter (mix of Ben Nye "Amethyst" and sparkles from Glitter Dust). Contour (Kevyn Aucoin "medium") and blush (Stila "Soar" and "Cozy") were kept minimal, with a flawless matte skin finished with MAC Prep+Prime Illuminate pressed CC powder.” -Win Liu
