Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2011 Day 2 Face Charts

On Day 2 of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim 2011, Make Up For Ever Alliance artist, Lottie, created a look with champagne and earth tones on the eyes with shimmery, metallic highlights at the Aqua Di Lara swim show.




Complexion & Cheeks: The skin was bronzed with highlights.

Eyes: Lottie first applied Aqua Cream #14 to the outer corners of the lids and blended inward. Next she applied Eye Shadow #17 to the crease and then dusted the outer corners and crease with Star Powder #930 to add a golden brown shimmer. The inner corner of the eyes were then dusted with Star Powder #946 to add a lighter dimension of shimmer. The eyes were lined with Waterproof Liner #1 in black and the lashes were coated with Aqua Smoky Lash.

Lips: For a shimmery nude lip, Lottie applied Fascinating Lip Gloss #16 as the finishing touch.

As for the Mara Hoffman swim show, Lottie took her inspiration from the bold swimwear, creating a “spacey” tribal make up look with bright accents of fuchsia and turquoise that put the focus on the eyes.




Complexion & Cheeks: The skin was bronzed and dewy with highlights on the brow bone and high cheek. Aqua Cream #7 in Fuchsia was applied lightly to the cheeks and blended heavily so only a slight pink flush remained.

Eyes: To create this tribal chic make up look, Lottie applied Aqua Cream #4 in white to the entire lid, up to the brow bone, blending it out. The eyes were defined using Aqua Eyes #0L in black on the bottom lash line only, and then Aqua Smoky Lash on both the top and bottom. Using a lip brush for added precision, Lottie drew small white dots at the top of the cheek bones starting from the outer corner of the eyes and over the blower bridge of the nose, following the natural shape of the eyes.

Lips: Lottie applied Lipstick #502, a matte nude lipstick, to keep the focus on the eyes.

  1. This is a really interesting blog. There’s been so many times when I’ve spotted a really vibrant and funky look and tried to recreate it and failed miserably. Fashion jobs are just so heavily influenced by makeup aren’t they. The instructions of how to apply the eye shadow is probably the most useful for me. No wonder I never end up looking like the picture, because I don’t really use a range of eye brushes or colours. I just kind of try and apply more eye shadow to darken the outer corners.
