THAKOON | Makeup artist Gucci Westman and designer Thakoon Panichgul partnered for the fourth season to create yet another inspired look for Fashion Week. Gucci wanted makeup that was sweet but tough to complement Thakoon’s extensive color palette of greens, burgundies, yellows and fuchsias and interesting layers and patterns.
Gucci focused on a beautiful wash of color that when seen on the runway blossomed on the models’ faces. “As a makeup artist, I love the look of artists’ pastels,” says Gucci. Using a mixture of pink and lilac blushes, Gucci created a soft cheek. Placement of the color was important as she didn’t want a traditional blush look. After applying the color higher up than normal, just below the eye, Gucci made sure the blush was not too severe or too low on the face by blending with a foundation brush.
Working her way up to the eyes, Gucci layered and blended deep gray light gray, white and soft purple shadows on the lids. Gucci curled the lashes and lightly dusted them with powder. Everything about the look was matte except the lips. Combining cream blushes and a boysenberry gloss from the Fall 2008 collection, “Maharani Jewels,” Gucci created a mauvey lip stain with a bit of sheen, which perfectly complemented the pale palette of the face.

I tried to do something kind of “classic” in terms of makeup for upcoming Valentine’s Day. (I wore the complete opposite practically when my boyfriend and I went out on our early Valentine’s dinner on Monday–I’m sick and didn’t want to lose my taste if we went closer to the date, ha.) By the way, I put on false lashes in less than a minute! Success! Finally! Seriously, I have always been 100% lash stupid. I felt like dancing Also, working on a tutorial as you read this… Done!
I used Cash Flow paint pot all over lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner lid, Patina eyeshadow on middle lid, Bronze eyeshadow on outer lid, Smut eyeshadow in outer crease and very outer corner, Bamboo eyeshadow on brow and above crease, Smut eyeshadow on lower outer lash line, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner lower lash line, and Graphblack technakohl on lower waterline.

The point of this post is to show you that hot pink lips are perfect for a Valentine Day’s pout, and you can find a shade of pink that works for you. MAC alone makes several vibrant pink lipsticks that are part of their permanent line, so get ye to the MAC store pronto (and get the artist to try them on you!).
