Coutorture will be guest edited by Jenny Flevin, Harper Bazaar’s senior editor, this Friday. She recently released a book called Harper’s Bazaar’s Great style, and they came up with some excellent categories of style. We thought we would run with their ideas and add our own beauty-take to them!
She’s the woman who goes for basic, classic, and utterly sophisticated in solid colors often in white, khaki, greys, and blacks. She isn’t distracted by the latest trend, she is truly timeless in her appearance.
With such effortless style, it is no doubt that makeup is absolutely minimal–at least to the human eye–and there only to enhance the natural structure and angles of the face. A light wash of wheat-hued shadow with lashes coated once or twice in a brown-black or soft black mascara; perhaps a touch of gray or navy liner for more adventurous days. Cheeks are always just a touch flushed, altogether naturally rosy. Classicists keep lips in neutral-pinks or neutral-peaches, depending on skintones; you’ll find a dozen lipstck favorites in semi-matte and semi-gloss finishes with only a gloss or two with just the faintest shimmery sheen for evenings out on the town.
She’s the woman that attracks all eyes; women envy her sense of daring style and sense of sexy, while men are merely charmed by her nature. She is all about emphasizing her femininity with curve-hugging dresses with plunging necklines in bold colors.
Her best friend is likely the smoky eye, dark grays and blacks–maybe brown or bronze for tamer days–with long, sultry lashes in the blackest black. Sometimes she bats false lashes with enviable lengths and volume. Look for lips in glossy pinks when paired with a vixenish smoky eye. She may switch it up on you to keep you intrigued by going for a siren-red pout with plenty of eye-catching sheen. Her cheeks will make her glow, and her skin is eminently flawless.
