Runway Beauty: Vibrant Eyes at Oscar de la Renta A/W 2017

February 16, 2017

At Oscar de la Renta A/W 2017, models donned colorful eyes in shades of lilac, coral and turquoise with magenta eyeliner, flushed cheeks and metallic nails.

Makeup: M·A·C Pro Team
Nails: Julie Kandalec for essie

To create the colorful smiley eyes, the M·A·C Pro Team used a mixture of Eyeshadows and Chromacakes, swept across the eyelid and upward through the crease to accentuate. Cyan and Pure White Chromacake were mixed for a sky blue, Rich Purple and Pure White for a lilac, Genuine Orange and Pure White for a coral. Chromagraphic Pencil in Process Magenta was applied in unison on every model for a matte, magenta liner through the upper lashline and pressed over with a bright pink pigment to set.

The rest of the face was kept paired down with a touch of color on the cheeks (M·A·C Trend Forecast Fall 17/Lip in Ketchup! and Heated Argument) and a bit of concealer and M·A·C Trend Forecast Fall 17/Lip in Life’s A Peach pressed onto the lips.

For a “high-tech” look against the fabrics, Kandalec applied two coats of essie imported bubbly, a shiny, reflective gold, on the models.
