Runway Beauty: Dolores Cortes at MBFW Swim 2013

At the Dolores Cortes show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2013, Make Up For Ever Alliance Artist Lottie combined sexy cat eyes with a bold pink statement lip for a punchy neon pop. Love how the look worked with the matching hair and nails without being over the top!

Complexion & Cheeks
Lottie created a glowing complexion by mixing Make Up For Ever HD Foundation with Make Up For Ever Uplight #22. Cheeks were contoured with Make Up For Ever Mat Bronze and highlighted with Make Up For Ever Sculpting Blush #22 in an orangey coral dusted lightly across the apples of the cheeks.

Lottie created a simple sexy cat eye with Make Up For EverAqua Black – she winged the line out on the upper lash line then connected it to the bottom lash line all the way to the middle eye. She finished with Make Up For Ever Faux Lash #157 and Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash mascara on both the top and bottom lashes.

Neon pink lips are the staple to this dramatic beach look. Lottie lined the lips with Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip #16C, and then added Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #7 with Make Up For Ever Star Powder #951 layered on top for a super matte neon lip.
