Love, love, love, this look by Marc Jacob New York Fashion Week!!!
A mix of monochrome, thick deckchair stripes, giraffe prints, were what stood out for me at this show – a real strong collection!
Make – up
To me this shouts 60’s an era I just adore.
The iconic Edie Sedgwick was the inspiration for the make-up.
The skin was kept fair, and the design was kept with Edie in mind but updated and fresher making the eyes more subtle but keeping them defined and taking a little inspiration from Greta Garbo for the softness.
The crease was defined with black liner but kept a lot thinner and cleaner.
My key tips to recreate this look are as follows:
– Prime with a neutral cream shadow over the lid of the eye
– Define the crease of the eye with a black or dark taupe liner or if you are doing for the first time, I would suggest using an eyeshadow to mark out the socket where you want to use the liner
– Add a bold but clean black liner close to the lash liner, taking it out slightly wider
– Finish with full set of lashes
– Define the brows using an eyeshadow 1-2 shades darker than your natural hair colour, use and angle brush to get the strong angler shape. You want them to be bold and frame the eye
– Keep skin light and matt – Chanel Mat Lumiere is good as is matt but light reflecting
– Keep barely there, a slight flush is good but don’t go to rosy
– You want to keep these nude and matt, there are some great nude lip colours out there and the key is only going again 1-2 shades lighter than your lip colour alternatively you could use a concealer
– But remember with matt colours on your lips, you need to make sure they are prepped and there is no trace of dryness
– Try making your own lip scrub beforehand to get rid of any dead skin and get the lips plumped – mix sugar, some olive oil and some peppermint essence
Now get creating 🙂
