I was disappointed this year when I realized I’d be in California during Fashion Week because I wouldn’t be able to cover the shows again. I had such a blast last February when I went backstage and saw all that goes into getting those girls ready. I found the backstage stuff to be more exciting than the shows themselves, which is why I especially love seeing these pics of the Makeup Artists working on the models and close-ups of the final look.
Make Up FOR EVER created this look for Thuy’s 2010 fall show bringing bright lips, luminous skin, and shimmering eyes to the runway.
Here’s what their lead artist, Lottie, used on the girls:
Foundation: HD Invisible Cover foundation
Cheeks: Mar Bronze #2 to create a contour and a little on the apples of cheeks
Powder: Super Matte Loose Powder #12 to set on the t-zone
Eyes: Star Powder #920 to the whole lid, Pan Cake Foundation #3 on the temples for an illuminating glow,
Lashes: Smoky Lash Mascara on the top and bottom lash
Lips: Flash Color #1 mixed with a little Flash #17 for a matte red patted into lips using fingers
