Runway Makeup: Cynthia Rowley Fall 2012

Inspired by the women of the 40s, Make Up For Ever Alliance artist Lottie created a look that is effortlessly natural, empowered, and clean at for the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2012 show.

The skin had a dewy finish with supple bare lips. To add a slightly masculine edge, Lottie groomed the brows creating a full and fluffy appearance.

Lottie first mixed Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation with Make Up For Ever Uplight #12. She applied this mixture all over, which gave the models a flawless dewy canvas. To finish the look and set the make up, she used Make Up For Ever Microfinish Powder.

Lottie brushed the brows upwards to create a fluffy appearance. For added fullness, she filled in individual hairs with Make Up For Ever Brow Pencil and Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector. The brows were then kept in place using Make Up For Ever Brow Seal.

The lips were supple and hydrated with Make Up For Ever Moisturizing Lip Balm.
