Libertine @ NYFW Fall/Winter 2011

MAKE UP FOR EVER ALLIANCE artist, Lottie (www.makeupforever-alliance.com), served as key make up artist for the Libertine Fall/Winter 2011 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Lottie wanted to create a look that was universally flattering on all the models without upstaging the beautiful colors in the collection. She decided on a tough, but chic, black smoky eye, fresh face and raspberry stained lip.

Makeup How-to

  • Eyes: To achieve a true black smoky eye, Lottie first applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Black to the upper and lower lash lines in a cat eye shape as a base. She then added MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Shadow #4 (matte black) and blended it out onto the eye lid. For added drama, she finished off the eyes with a thick coat of MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash.
  • Lips: Lottie used Rouge Artist Intense #34 to get a nice berry stained lip.
  • Face: Lottie used MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation to perfect the models’ complexions. She then contoured the hollows of the cheeks using MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Sculpting Kit.

“The collection draws inspiration from the opulence of the Rococo period and the style of the Masai tribe in Africa,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul. “There are a lot of primary colors, but also gorgeous marabou feathers, so we wanted to create a balance to everything to ensure it was really believable. We’ve always done fresh, pretty, natural, and it was time for a strong makeup look.”

“With Thakoon’s references to this idea of tribal opulence, I felt that if we were going to do “color” it would have to be focused on the eye with one central color theme, and nothing else. There was a lot of youth in the group of models, so we wanted to keep the look very fresh. Red was a natural choice, complimenting the use of color throughout the collection.” — Diane Kendal

“My inspiration started with a picture of my family in the late 70s; I thought my mom was so chic. I was also very inspired by these pictures of manta rays and came up with a very film-noir esthetic for the collection, which is very chic, but also very dark,” said designer Mandy Coon.

“I was inspired by Mandy’s film noir and punk references. I chose to create lines for intensity but to keep some negative space in the lid, keeping a modern shape. It’s futuristic cat eye meets cyborg punk princess,” said Lead Artist Francelle Daly.
