Runway Beauty: Vivienne Tam S/S 2012 Makeup

Inspired by a Japanese zen garden, Maybelline New York makeup artist Andy Koh created a 70’s inspired look with clean, natural skin, long lashes and metallic eyes and lips.

To create flattering contours and angles, two different shades of Fit Me Foundation were used. Andy used a lighter shade to focus on the T-zone area and a deeper shade around the outer edges of the face.

The gold and green hues of Eye Studio Color Explosion Luminizing Eyeshadow in Forest Furywere applied on the upper eyelid while the copper shade of Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow in Irresistible Ivy defined the crease and outer corner of the lower lid to create a glowy effect. Lashes were coated with Volumn’ Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara in Black Drama on both top and bottom for a long, thick look.

To add color and shine, Andy applied Color Sensational High Shine Lipcolor in Coral Luster on the lips before topping with Shine Sensational Lip Gloss in Minty Sheer.
