See breakdowns for Rodarte and Matthew Williamson…

Rodarte | James Kaliardos

Inspiration: “The look is a stone face. The idea behind it is sculpture – to deconstruct and reconstruct the face in an abstract way emphasizing each part.”

Eyes: Scene Eye shadow – placed in a thick line in the crease and tapered toward the outer portion of the eye. Warm Light Sculpting powder – diffused from inner corners of the crease of the eye lids and pulled out in a linear shape straight toward the temples to the hairline. Frozen White Pigment – placed precisely in the inner corners of the eyes.

Skin: Pure White Paintstick – blended into skin for a pale white base under the eyes and wrapped up toward the temples in a “c” shape . Frozen White Pigment – blended over paintstick for a satin frost . Warm light sculpting powder – brushed from under the cheek bone up to the temples in at sharp angle for severe contouring.

Lips: Dark Brown cream colour base, Polished Ivory, Pure white and Black black paint sticks – blended together to create a stone gray/brown lip. Frozen white pigment – highlighting the bow of the lips.

Matthew Williamson | Charlotte Tilbury

Inspiration: “The look is very done but in a neutral way – she’s a chic early 90’s woman.”

Eyes: Knight Divine, Brun, and Print Eye shadows – buffed over lids up toward the brows and along the lower lashline in an oval shape. Plushblack Plushlash Mascara – applied to top lashes only.

Skin: Matte Bronze bronzing powder – applied in a sheer wash to contour the cheekbones.

Lips: Stripdown lip pencil –precisely lining the lips. Half and Half Lipstick – brushed on to fill in the lips.
