Beauty Under The Tents, Part II. MAC Makeup for Threeasfour, Yigal Azrouel, Mara Hoffman, DKNY & Twinkle. Second City Style Fashion & Beauty Blog

The runway makeup synopsis continues…


Threeasfour went a little more elegant than usual. Makeup expert Gordon Espinet morphed black eyeliner into a black/teal or inky/burgundy and applied it upside down "so that the darkest part of the eye makeup is along the lower lash line rather than the lid." The eyelids themselves were left bare to bring out natural sensuality.

Yigal Azrouel

Makeup Artist Romy Soleimani called the look "the colors of nature when they corrode." She employed softly-blended charcoal brown and olive eyes that she lined with a greenish-black hue. Soleimani kept the rest of the face pale and practically bare, lightly brushing M-A-C powder on the cheeks to add contour and dabbing the mouth with "Fresh Lip" (a new matte balm in concealer-like tints). The hair kept in a messy low ponytail to convey effortless chic of the NY girl who likes to stay up late.

Mara Hoffman

Makeup artist Chantel Miller went for a look that was sexy, but rough and a bit androgynous. She used "Blitz & Glitz Fluidline" (a black cream with gold flecks) to create extreme cat eyes framed by strong full brows. Cheekbones were highlighted by "Super White M-A-C Hyper Real Pressed Powder", then softened with "Cream Colour Base in Hush". Terracotta lips finished this "Blade Runner" effect.

Young, fun and fresh like the clothes, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury wanted the barest of flush on the cheeks. She applied a matte pink lipstick over the apples of the cheeks so that the pigment became part of the skin – a more natural finish than powder blushes.

Twinkle by Wenlan
Since color, print, texture, layers and femininity played a major role in Twinkle’s style, makeup artist Charlie Green devised a way to apply those elements to the makeup. Lids were dreamy soft with Dusty lilac, while cheekbones sparkled with a light dusting of gold shimmer. Lips were layered in a mauvey pink lipstick and powder and edges blurred out for a pillowy finish…modern romantic.
