Makeup Artist extraordinaire, Artistic Director for Hourglass Cosmetics, and gracious interviewee for my Beauty Big 3 column Gina Brooke created the beauty look for the Imitation of Christ spring 2012 show. Looking more like a wedding and less like the typical runway show, the models gathered around the wedding party complete with faux bride (heiress Lydia Herst) and groom. Brooke wanted a look that was timeless, classic, and clean to flatter without overpowering the soft romance of a (faux) wedding.
Skin: Primer followed by Illusion Tinted Moisturizer or in some cases Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation applied with No. 2 Foundation Brush
Hidden Corrective Concealer on blemishes or discolorations
Eyes: Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Lagoon (blue), Dune (gold) or Prism (silver) on the lid blended with fingers
Script Precision Liner to enhance the lash line
Film Noir Mascara to define, finished with a glossy topcoat of Film Noir Lash Lacquer (You can check out the scoop on Lash Lacquer HERE, it’s a glossy top coat for the lashes that I suddenly need to buy)
Cheeks: Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush to the apples of the cheeks blended with the fingers
Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light for a cheek highlight
Lips: Aura Sheer Lip Stain in Flush
The team from Skyn ICELAND prepped the models skin before the show.
Do you fake take this woman to be your bride? It’s a real priest in case you’re wondering (really), it was a Thursday so he was free. I wonder if he was wearing makeup too and if that was his robe? I also wonder how they found a somewhat good-looking priest under the age of 80. (I’m Catholic so I know this is a rare find).
