“This is the kind of makeup that gets better and better the more lived-in and the longer you wear it,” says Gordon Espinet. Read on to find out how the makeup guru created the gorgeous looks from the Dsquared² Fall 2009 runway show with the latest MAC DSquared2 Collection.





Face
Skin is neutral, then given a lived-in glamour with Sculpt and Shape Powders, which are used to highlight and contour.

Eyes
The central focus of this look is the eyes, blackened and distressed with sensual shimmer. First, Kohl Power in Feline is used to draw inside the eye line, to give definition and edge. Then a Greasepaint Stick is used to create shape and density of colour. This is broken with Greasepaint Stick in V and B (V, a violet shade, is worn on the top lid and peacock-hued B on the bottom), which shoot through the black and give it the iridescence of a crow’s wing or a scarab beetle. The look is texturized with M·A·C Clear Gloss, “to bring light to hidden things,” says designer Dan Caten. The eye is wickedly topped with Zoom Fast Black Lash, the blackest of black mascara.

Lips
To emphasize the magnetic pull of the eyes, lips are kept minimal yet delicious. Colour is first taken out of the lips using Lip Erase in Dim, a flesh tone balm that neutralizes lip colour, and then added back with Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 in Fuchsia Fix, a breezy, girlish pink shade to keep the look youthful and carefree.
