4 Pretty Girls

Kori Richardson for ChloĆ©

A full on brown eye with bushy eyelashes, Charlotte Tilbury used Mac Cream color base in dark brown and brown eye pencil to add definition to the eyes. Mascara is definitely a must have this season with most of the runway models’ eyelashes were clogged with it. Use on both upper and lower lashes and create a spidery effect to your lashes. As for the lips the makeup artist used an orange/ caramel color, for this she used Mac lipstick in Freckletone. Typing about freckles these were drawn on the model’s face. “We’re just putting them were the sun would hit you” Tilbury said.

Here you can see the freckles more clearly

Mac Lipstick in Freckletone

Mac Cream Color base

This color is very neutral and goes with everything; it’s a kind Smokey Eye effect without black. I love girls who wear huge bushy eyebrows rather than the usual thin line. The main aspect of this look is the eyes with a strong effect. As for the lips there were kept natural with a light color and this could be worn during the day. I love coloring my lips and will surely paint some of this pretty color on mine!

 Magdalena Frackowiak and Ninue Smit for Lanvin

“it’s all about the imperfection here” Pat McGrath said. She used black eyeliner on the outer corners of the eye model’s lids using Cover Girl’s Smoky Shadow Blast Eye shadow in Onyx Smoke. The most important factor in this look is the eye lashes. She used Lash Blast Fusion mascara for a “cloggy” effect.
This look suits all and is very easy to do once you get the hang of your eye shape and defining it with eyeliner. The only worry is drawing both eyes symmetrically; this requires a lot of practice.

Yves Saint Laurent – Ruby Jean Wilson

This ultraviolet lip unfortunately was scrapped and instead the models went down the runway wearing a pale nude lip instead. But I still wanted to use this model because she is the edgy and unique one of them all. I love statement lips and this purple color is one of my favorite. If you want to make a statement with your makeup you can just wear a bright lip color. Keeping the complexion and eye area light and natural with just a dab of mascara and you’re done.

My Benefit Products

 Just received my products from benefit and they are amazing! The packaging is absolutely stunning... and so is the product inside. 
So lets start with the Sugarbomb blusher... It has four different shades in one to blush up your cheeks. With a very compact packaging you can easily put in your bag and carry it along with you in case of a touch up! 
Finding Mr. Bright is the bright pink box of has 4 different products which are  Girl meets pearl, Posie tint, high beam and erase paste.Girl meets pearl and high beam are highlighters for the face, to put on cheek bones and brow bones..don't over do because your face will be shiny bulb! Then there is the erase paste which is a sticky concealer to put on dark spots or dark circles around eye area. The Posie tint is a little lipstain in baby pink...I actually thought it was nail polish at first because of the tube..wups!
As for the eyes I bought the creaseless cream shadow/ liner in skinny jeans which is silvery color and the velvet eyeshadow in tickled mink. I kind of preferred the creaseless cream because its a creamy texture and it has more pigment thus leaves a better effect and color on the eye.
And last but not least Mascara...They're REAL! Definitely best buy and best mascara. 94% saw dramatic length & volume 90% saw base- to- tip curl 94% saw visible lift 100% saw long wearing results... AGREE... It has this spiky stick that doesn't overdo the mascara on eyelashes and make them all blotchy. It keeps the eyelashes looking natural with one coat and with two WOW! are They REAL?

Jil Sander

Makeup was done by Peter Philips who did a Standout Red lip using Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Enthusiast. For a long last he layered powder on top of lipstick; the oldest trick in the books. Metallic green- blue eyeliner on the eyes he used Chanel Stylo Yeux Eye Pencil in Jade. 

Block Coloring

Who said you can only wear colors in summer?

Jil Sander’s collection for A/ W 2011 were full of bright color and volume. From the voluminous coats to the balloon dresses they all contained color.
~~ This is the art of modernism~~

Seventies ChloƩ Look

Charlotte Tibury used coffee, taupe and caramel pigments for this “classic and feminine, healthy seventies look” as she calls it.

Using Mac Cosmetics she created this natural satin finish. As a foundation she used Studio Sculpt Foundation and a Transparent Finishing Powder. For the eyes she used Mac Pro Cream Color Base in Air Force Blue and its Paint Stick in Black. Lips are a coral- nude color; she used the Mac Freckletone lipstick.

I really like using coral on myself, not only on the lips but on the eye area or as a blush. For eye shadows you can use Benefit's Creaseless Eye Shadow

And for a Coral-ish Blush you can use Laura Mercier’s Canyon Fall Look Blush

As for the lips you can use benefit silky finish in make nice
