Inspired by Elettra Wiedemann, Lancôme National Makeup Artist Tarek Abbas created “enhanced natural beauty” for designer Monika Chiang’s debut NY Fashion Week A/W 2012 presentation.
Tarek wanted the models’ skin to be flawless with a healthy glow. He evened out their skin with Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation (available March 2012), contoured the cheeks using the new Blush Subtil Palette in Nectar Lace – #126 (available July 2012) and swept bronzer around the hairline and chin.
He mixed Color Design Eyeshadows in Vintage and Chic to create a subtle wash of color around the eyes and defined the eyes with Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in Café, a dark brown eyeliner, before carefully smudging and blending it. One coat of Définicils Mascara in Brown created natural-looking lashes.
Tarek applied Rouge In Love in Lasting Kiss with his finger and pressed the color onto the lips to pump up the model’s natural lip color.
Vernis in Love Nail Polish in Crystal Quartz – #010M were used on the nails.
