Runway Makeup: Pamela Love Fall 2012

A glamorous “Factory Girl” served as muse at Pamela Love A/W 2012, so Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer created a simple look with unexpected “working girl accents”.

To create the beautiful, glowing complexions, Charlotte applied Fit Me! Foundation and Concealer with her fingers and added a light dusting of Fit Me! Powder. Dream Bouncy Blush in Coffee Cake was blended into the cheekbones for that “working girl glow”.

Charlotte started by lining the upper and lower lashlines with Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil in Bold Brown. Then she smudged the chocolate and mocha hues from Eye Studio Color Explosion Luminizing Eyeshadow in Caffeine Rush into the upper lashline and blended the neutral pearlescent color on the eyelid. She finished with Volum’ Express Falsies Flared Mascara in Very Black on upper and lower lashes.

To create a light brown shade infused with sheen, Charlotte blended Color Sensation Lip Color in Totally Toffee and So Pearly together with her fingers.
