MAC @ Vena Cava

On inspiration, Lloyd Simmonds says, “The designer wanted the girls to look like they spent a day skiing and horseback riding–fresh, flushed but tanned.”

Makeup How-to

  • Eyes: M·A·C Pro Powder Blush in Taupe – Softly brushed along the crease of the eyelid. Style Predator Eye Shadow – Brushed over the whole eyelid. M·A·C Pro Shine Wax – App lied over the eye shadow on the eyelid. M·A·C Pro Lash in Black – Applied only to the upper eyelashes
  • Face: Select Cover-Up Concealer – App lied to the skin as foundation. M·A·C Pro Cream Colour Base in Bronze and Mid-tone Sepia – Brushed across forehead and cheekbones for a slightly windblown effect. M·A·C Pro Shine Wax – Applied over the Cream Colour Base across the bridge of the nose to give a dewy finish.
  • Lips: Lipmix in Red – Applied to the natural shape of the lip, to give a sophisticated, matte mouth

    Sorry to say, but I don’t think it suits the models,
    the red lip is kind of disturbing to me :)

    Lips are a little too orange for most people to wear. BTW if the girl in that last pic can be a model then there’s hope for us all.

      That is a nasty thing to say.

      i understand what you mean about the last girl. i feel like the mua didn’t even out her skin tone and made her look really bad.

      Well maybe they purposely didn’t use a model like Naomi Campbell, Alek Wek, Chanel Iman, or Jourdan Dunn because they would have overshadowed everybody else and stolen the show!

      There are no new ‘supermodels’ anymore, I notice that everybody else is made to purposely look alike these days.

    Ouch. I thought it was cute until the black girl. Everything doesn’t look good for everybody.

  4. I have often found runway make-up to be a bit slapdash. I know everything behind the scenes is moving at a rapid pace but still… Hmm… I don’t know ;)

    I’m curious to see what the collection looks like more than anything.

    Have to agree, that is a crappy lip color, a bit Ronald McDonald-esque.
