Runway Makeup: Sculpted Beauty at Rodarte Fall 2009

To go with the organic look Kate and Laura Mulleavy designed for the Rodarte Fall 2009 collection, MAC makeup artist James Kaliardos gave models a stone face. “The idea behind it is sculpture – to deconstruct and reconstruct the face in an abstract way emphasizing each part.” said Kaliardos.

* Pure White Paint Stick – blended into skin for a pale white base under the eyes and wrapped up toward the temples in a “C” shape
* Frozen White Pigment – blended over Paint Stick for a satin frost
* Warm Light Sculpting Powder – brushed from under the cheek bone up to the temples in at sharp angle for severe contouring

* Scene Eyeshadow – placed in a thick line in the crease and tapered toward the outer portion of the eye
* Warm Light Sculpting Powder – diffused from inner corners of the crease of the eye lids and pulled out in a linear shape straight toward the temples to the hairline
* Frozen White Pigment – placed precisely in the inner corners of the eyes

* Dark Brown Cream Color Base, Polished Ivory, Pure White and Black Black Paint Sticks – blended together to create a stone gray/brown lip
* Frozen White Pigment – to highlight the bow of the lips
