Runway Makeup: 60s Ballerinas at Zac Posen Spring 2010

September 15, 2009

At Zac Posen Spring 2010, key artist Stephane Marais working for M·A·C Cosmetics created a look that was inspired by “a mix of Degas ballerinas and Jean Shrimpton from the 1960s. Graceful and delicate like a watercolour painting, colours blended like hydrangeas”.

• Face and Body Foundation – applied to skin for a dewy, sheer finish.
• Prep + Prime Powder – to set
• Pro Paintstick in Magenta and Dolly Mix Blush – mixed and blended onto cheeks with fingertips
• White Frost Eyeshadow – dusted over tops of cheekbones to highlight

• White Pigment – applied to eyelid
• Dazzlelight Eyeshadow – layered over lids for a transparent, sparkle
• Lingering Brow Pencil – blended into crease to enhance and contour the eye
• Fibre Rich Mascara – generously applied to top and bottom lashes to create a fake lash look
• Clear Brow Set – to set brows

• Syrup Lipstick – patted onto lips
• Plumful Lipstick – blended with fingertips onto the corners of lips to add volume and contour

    Is is possibble that the makeup artist is using the Notoriety quad on the photo? It looks like it. ( I know the facechart doesn’t say it )
