Tommy Hilfiger | Lisa Butler

Inspiration: “The look is based on a late 1970’s Lauren Hutton kind of makeup – very American, very glamorous but low key and natural.”

Eyes: Goldmine eye shadow – blended over the eyelids. Cocomotion Pigment – buffed into the crease of the eyelids . Powersurge Eye Kohl – placed along the lower lashline then smudged slightly with a brush to blend into the lashline. Prolash Mascara in Black – applied to top and bottom lashes .

Skin: Full Coverage Foundation – brushed onto the skin for a flawless face. Mineralize Skinfinish Natural – blended over the face to set foundation. Refined Golden Bronzer – applied lightly under cheek bones as a subtle contour. Intenso and Earth to Earth Mineralize Blush – blended together onto the apples of the cheeks for a soft glow.

Lips: Lip Conditioner mixed with Tickle Me Pink cream colour base or Virgin Isle cream colour base – pressed on with fingers for a sheer pink or coral lip.

Inspiration: “A modern interpretation of the optical effects of Man Ray.”

Eyes: Vex and Scene eye shadows – blended over eyelids, up past the crease of the lids and along the lower lashline to create a gray wash on the eyes. Print eye shadow – gently applied over gray shadow to add a blue tint. Blacktrack Fluidline – lining the top lashline and slightly extended past the outer corner of the eyes. Another thin black line was created by following the arch of the brow bone above the crease of the lid, and another following the lower lashline under the eyes.

Skin: Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation – applied to the face for a natural but finished face. Invisible Set Powder – brushed over the entire face to set foundation.

Lips: Lip Erase in Dim – pressed onto lips to create a skin tone mouth.
