There are some fashion week beauty looks that are out there, like – bleached eyebrows, and over-the-top graphic eyeliner situations – that aren’t exactly appropriate for everyday wear, especially if you go to school or an office daily. And then there are runway looks that are just drop dead gorgeous. Michael Kors’ Fall 2015 look falls into the latter category.
Despite being a fall show, the makeup was fresh and perfect for any season, and I think it would look particularly beautiful for spring, especially with the current soft, natural beauty trends flooding the pages of March magazines. It was all about a blush-bronzer combo on the cheeks – not a contoured look, but rather the two mixed together and seemingly heavily applied. The rest of the face was kept pretty bare, save a bit of brown liner smoked around the eyes, a thin coat of mascara, and a soft pink lip with a hint of shimmer.
I wanted to recreate this look for myself, and here’s what I came up with: for a pretty, natural base, I applied Glossier’s Skin Perfecting Tint with hands. I then took a fluffy brush and mixed Rimmel’s Santa Rose blush with the bronzer side of Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow, and swept this onto my cheeks, blending upwards. Some of the models looked like they had a bronze glow on their lids, so I took a bit of bronzer on a Sigma blending brush, and swept this on my eyelids, blending in the crease. Next, I took a brown Giorgio Armani eye pencil, roughly lined my upper and lower lash lines, and then smudged the line with the other end of the pencil. I then added two coats of mascara to my top and bottom lashes, and that was the eyes done.
For lips, I first dabbed on Maybelline’s Lust for Blush, and then further blended the pink color out with a fingertip. The final touch was applying a bit of Bite’s Champagne Agave Lip Mask to achieve that sheen-y, slightly shimmery pout.
