Spring makeup is always fresh and dewy and it is no different at the Wes Gordon Spring 2012 show.

“Fresh, young and elegant” were the three words Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer had in mind. “The skin is dewy, the brow is strong and the lip pops with a sheer wash of color.”

Fit Me! Foundation was used to create perfect, dewy skin before Fit Me! Blush in Medium Coral was added onto the apples of the cheeks for a youthful glow.

For the strong brow, Charlotte used Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil that is a shade or two darker than models’ natural brow. She also added Baby Lips Lip Balm in Quenched onto the eyelids to enhance the overall dewy effect.

Color Sensational Lipcolor in Very Cherry was dabbed in the center of the lips with fingertips to create a stained effect and a pouty pop of color.

To embody the height of ’60s SoHo sophistication, Kristina Estabrooks from CND crafted soft almond, nearly neon, coral “Power Nails” with two coats of CND Colour in Poppyfield and kept the toes clean and neutral with CND Colour in Desert Suede.
