Runway Beauty: Heavy Metal Look at Alexander Wang A/W 2015

February 22, 2015


Inspired by heavy metal rock, the look at Alexander Wang Autumn/Winter 2015 was “gothic, rock-and-roll” with eyes drenched in moody grays for a slept-in look, contoured cheeks and creamy taupe nails.

Kendal created the gorgeous eye look by applying Aigle Noir Velvet Shadow Stick (available Fall 2015) topped with Transvaal Eye Paint, a matte medium cool-toned grey. She added the matte gray-brown shade of Bellissima Duo Eyeshadow on the lower eye, blending directly onto the circles of the eyes and on the cheeks to further heighten the Gothic vibe. The rest of the face was left dewy with Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer/Sheer Glow Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer.

To create the ghostly, obscure taupe nail look, Saunders layered two coats of jazz, with a neutralizing matte top coat.
