New York Fashion Week Fall 2008 – Backstage Beauty with MAC at Preen, Jonathan Saunders, Tuleh
PREEN | The skin was prepped with MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation, followed by an application of Mineralize Skinfinish Duo to contour the face; the matte powder created a scoop in the cheek and the shimmer powder created a highlighting effect. The eye lid was covered with Satin Taupe Eye Shadow, followed by Taupe Eye Shadow in the crease of the eye lid to give a “dirty look.” Carnal Lipstick, layered with Desire Lipglass was centered on the lips and diffused out into the lip line using MAC Brush 316.
“The look is inspired both by Kurt Cobain and Kim Basinger in the movie, 9 1/2 Weeks; bitten, made-out lips and sultry, sexy eyes,” says James Kaliardos.
JONATHAN | MAC Face and Body Foundation was buffed into the skin using Brush 187. MAC Gloss Texture was mixed with Reflects Pearl and applied from the lash to the brow. Boyish brows were created by brushing brows up with MAC Eyebrow Brush 266. Brows were then filled in with MAC Eye Brow Pencils in appropriate shades, followed my MAC Brow Finisher. MAC PRO Lip Erase was lightly applied to the lips to bring down their natural colour.
“Sci-fi, sporty, blade-runner girl. Honed-to-the-bone skin. There is aggressiveness to the brows – they’re a bit boyish,” says Val Garland.
TULEH | MAC Face and Body Foundation was blended into the skin with Brush 187. Sculpt and Shape in Accentuate was applied with Brush 136 onto cheek bones for contour. MAC Eye Shadows in Embark and Corduroy were brushed into the crease of the eyelid with Brush 224 and onto the outer half of the lower lash line. Using Brush 242, Yellow Gold Pigment was applied to the inner corner of the lid, as well as the inner bottom lash line; Rose Gold Pigment was applied to the center of the lid and the center of the lower lash line. Antiqued Copper Pigment was applied to the outer corner of the lids. The pigments were then blended with Brush 224. Zoom Lash Mascara in Black was coated onto the top and bottom lashes. Brows were lightly filled in with Lingering Eye Brow Pencil and Clear Brow Set. MAC 4N Lipstick was patted onto the lips and 2N Lipglass was layered on top.
“The look was inspired by a photograph of Charlotte Rampling from the 70s,” says Polly Osmond.
