“Naeem’s inspiration this season was actress Lauren Bacall. We liked the idea of this classic, old Hollywood Naeem girl but a bit more ‘undone’. Fresh skin, glossy eyes and a stained lip is where we landed.” explained Boehmer.
Skin was evened out with Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and Radiant Creamy Concealer and set with Soft Velvet Loose Powder (new for Spring 2015). Cheeks were lightly sculpted with the right side of Fervor Dual Intensity Blush (new for Spring 2015).
On the eyes, Cappadoce Matte Multiple and Coconut Grove Matte Eyeshadow were used to add depth (Mambo Eyeliner and Bengali Matte Eyeshadow were used on models with darker skintones). Lashes were coated with Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara and Triple X Lip Gloss was dabbed on the eyelid for a glossy sheen. Finally, lips were painted with Ingrid Audacious Lipstick using a brush for a stained look.
Both hands and feet received essie fiji, a creamy pale pink shade, for an elegant but not too glamorous touch.
