Make Up For Ever @ The Vessel by Lois S/S 2011

Make Up For Ever ALLIANCE artist, A.J. Crimson, served as key make up artist for the Vessel, by lois Spring/Summer 2011 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. A.J. was inspired by the beautiful colors in the collection, as well as the structure of the clothing. To bring the make up to life, A.J. created a colorful cat eye that was bold yet simple at the same time.

Makeup How-to

Complexion & Cheeks: The complexion was fresh and sunny. A.J. first applied Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation to give the skin a healthy spring-time glow. Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #10 was dusted on the cheeks and then blended into the skin for a soft wash of orange color. To illuminate the face, Make Up For Ever Star Powder #940 was swept along the upper cheek bones and the top of the nose.

Eyes: The eyes were the focal point of the look. A.J. created a strong cat eye using either Make Up For Ever Aquarelle #3 (blue) or Aquarelle #6 (green) on alternating models. Aquarelle was applied to the eyes using a liner brush to create a modified cat eye shape – the wing was extended beyond the outer edge of the eye for a burst of color, and there was additional detail on the lid for a peek-a-boo effect.

Lips: The lips were neutral and muted slightly with Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation to create a clean canvas that allowed the rest of the face to stand out.
