Party Girl: Spring 2014 Runway Makeup

For the Spring 2014 Show, I liked the idea of a girl who partied the night before and didn’t bother taking her makeup off afterwards. I usually like the girls to look a bit tough, very downtown. (The hair had a grunge feel but still quite polished, so we could go stronger on the make-up.)   I worked with long-time collaborator, the creative, talented makeup artist Sil Bruinsma, and below are his notes for those looking to create the effect themselves:

Skin is left quite bare, just a bit of concealer where necessary. Eyebrows are strong and on the darker side using TAUPE. The focus is really on the eyes; dark, kohl rimmed and smudged, in EBONY and PRUNELLA pencil. A smear of MIX MEDIUM on the lids and a dab of concealer on the lips finish of the look.

-Use a lighter to warm up your pencil before applying kohl on the waterline, it will stick better and glide on thickly.

-For a real smoldery effect use a black pencil inside the eye and a deep plum or brown/bronze around the eyes. Smudge out with a q-tip. The two tones create extra depth.

-Don’t be too delicate when applying mascara, really work mascara into the root of the lashes and wiggle over bottom lashes, a little residue on the skin is nice actually and gives a slept-in effect.

-I prefer NOT to curl lashes when I do a tough girl look like this. It just looks cooler.
