Fierce was the word that came to mind when I saw the gorgeous cat eye with nude lip at Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2013 Couture. Using “six shades of brown shadow”, makeup artist Lloyd Simmonds elongated models’ eyes before adding white kohl on the inner rim of the lids and black eyeliner on upper and lower lashlines.
Dewy skin reigned the runway of the Valentino Fall 2013 Couture show at Paris. To get the look, “mix moisturizer into your foundation and apply it like skincare,” says famed makeup artist Zing. Add a dab of highlighter (nothing beats NARS Copabacanab Illuminator) onto the “C” shape along the top of the cheekbones to just under or above the brows and finished with curled lashes and just a tinge of color on the lips.
At Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Couture, the look was signature Donatella Versace – a sultry eye with lots of lashes and “just a bit of smoke”, paired with bare lips. To get the look, Pat McGrath applied two and a half rows of false eyelashes to both top and bottom lids. For a similar effect, try my favorite Jealousness JS-507 False Eyelashes and Jealousness JS-709 False Eyelashes instead!
Pat McGrath continued her love for glitter lips at the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture show, where she gave models metallic lips in shades of bronze and dark rose that are super cool! To avoid competing with such dazzling lips, the rest of the face was kept bare with just a hint of shimmer on the inner corners and center of the lid. Total loves!
The first collection, debuting this October, will feature eight different 3D nail wrap designs (Revlon by Marchesa 3D Jewel Appliqués) inspired by the gorgeous Marchesa’s couture gowns. Two more will follow in 2014 which include lip and eye products, nail polish and other beauty tools.
To echo the neon green metallic seen in the shoes and clothing of the Atelier Versace Spring Couture 2013 collection, makeup artist Pat McGrath paired a smoky eye with a graphic strip of lime green eyeliner on the inner and outer corners along with glossy lips and flawless skin. Yet another way to rock green, the Pantone Color Of The Year.
