Runway Beauty: Imitation of Christ S/S 2012 Makeup Breakdown

September 9, 2011

To go with the super-chic wedding party theme at the Imitation of Christ Spring 2012 show, my favorite makeup artist, Gina Brooke from Hourglass Cosmetics, devised a look that showcased flawless skin, vivid eyes and stained lips. Simply gorgeous!

“It’s about clean, beautiful and memorable makeup – it is a wedding after all,” says Brooke. “This look is timeless, it’s never going to go out of style.”

Start with Primer Serum (launching in Summer 2012) to create a moisturized canvas for makeup. Follow with Illusion Tinted Moisturizer, or Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation (launching Spring 2012) if you have an oily complexion and apply with No. 2 Foundation brush. Conceal dark circles or blemishes with Hidden Corrective Concealer.

Apply Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Lagoon (blue), Dune (gold) or Prism (silver) on the lid and blend with fingers. Follow with a subtle application of Script Precision Liner to enhance the lash line. Follow with Film Noir Mascara to define the lashes and finish with a glossy topcoat of Film Noir Lash Lacquer.

Apply Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush to the apples of the cheeks and blend with the fingers. Highlight cheeks with Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light.

Apply Aura Sheer Lip Stain in Flush to lips.
