For the Fall/Winter 2012 collection, Suno wanted the look of a strong girl with a little bit of a Kate Moss edge. MAC key artist Carole Colorbani created the look of the Suno girl. “She is a strong girl,” Colorbani explained. “She is sexy but a bit masculine girl.” To play off the collection, the look plays off of the army and bright floral pattern. “We didn’t want something to pretty to play off of those prints, something stronger.”
To start, the face and body is covered with Face & Body Foundation with a lot of moisture and applied with a small brush where needed. For the eyes, a light liner of Teddy Pencil eyeliner is used and smudged against the rims. There are also two pigments used to create the colors and dimensions. Deeply Dashing and Day Gleam Pressed Pigments are used as shadows on the eye. It’s lightly dabbed on the eyes to create a sultry glow. There’s no mascara used on the eyes. Blush is added just to the cheekbones. Copper Beach Sculpting Cream is mixed with Coldback Creme Blend blush to add a pink of pink and warmth to the face.
Lips are just bare and natural. Sculpting Creme is applied to the base of the lips just to add a bit more depth and bring out the natural color. MAC Shine is added on at the last minute to help catch the light.
The hair plays in with the look. A deep side part os created and the hair is pulled back into a long ponytail. Hair is loosely twisted at the base of the hair. The front of the hair is twisted to the back while creating a small bun at the base. A few tendrils peek out in the front, adding a bit more femininity to the look.
