The trend on the runways for the colourful new Spring 2012 collections is a "barely there" makeup look. We can't all be blessed with the perfect canvas required to achieve this look with minimal product. The look from the Douglas Hannant Collection for Spring 2012 on the runways is the perfect exemplification of this gorgeous natural trend so here is how you can recreate the look courtesy of Le Metier de Beaute.
Please click on the picture to enlarge. I've left it full sized so you can appreciate the beauty of the effect.
Key Makeup Artist: Maud LaCeppe
Inspiration: 1930’s Shanghai upper class influenced by Western culture. Overall look is soft, feminine, polished and bright.
- To prep face, cover with Classic Flawless Foundation and even out skin tone and imperfections
- Create a clean, youthful face and cover blemishes with Classic Flawless Finish Concealer
- Define cheek bones and create a dark flushed cheek by brushing with Radiance Powder Rogue in Fresh or Echo
- Finish by sweeping Classic Flawless Finish Loose Powder all over face
- Accentuate the eye by lining the upper and lower lash line with Dualistic Eye Pencil in Tamarack
- Dab True Colour Eye Shadow in Ice into the inner corner of the eye
- Coat Magic Luster Crème all over eyelids for a glossy finish
- For stand-out eyes, paint with a thick layer of Anamorphic Mascara in Black
- Define eyebrows with Brow Bound Eyebrow Pencil to darken and extend
- Apply Colour Core Core Moisture Stain Lipstick in Ibiza to create a perfect peach lip
- Finish by coating with a clear lip gloss OR Use Magic Luster Crème to create vinyl-like sheen finish
I went to link my review of Ibiza lipstick only to realize I haven't reviewed it yet! I will get on that ASAP! There are obviously more eye shadows involved in this look than those listed but I think the new Silk Road Kaleidoscope from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection would be a wonderful way to achieve this subtle plum smokey eye.
