How to get flawless skin and a strong make-up lookMake-up: James Molloy, Director of Artistry for Asia and Pacific at M.A.C Cosmetics, at the Etw. Vonneguet Show F/W 2012 2013 in Tokyo
Make-up with one graphic element and a skin that comes 'close to perfection'. This make-up look is easy and we will explain you how to create this look. It becomes also very 'wearable' if you apply the colors you usually would use for the eyebrows as an eyeliner instead. Let's have a closer look at this make-up look.
Grafic eyebrows. Flawless skin. The inspiration
'The inspiration for this make-up is a tribe, a futuristic tribe', says James Molloy. 'We have guys and girls in the show and I wanted them all to feel part of the same family, almost the same person. So we are taking some real beautiful colors straight from the collection that has a royal blue, a turquoise and a purple, with which we create a graphic eyebrow. So all the models have graphic eyebrows and a kind of plastic looking skin. It is quite futuristic, especially with the hair which is almost like a woven cocoon that makes the beautiful graphic eyebrows showing through.'
Bright colors and a perfect complexion
Step 1: Choose a foundation that suits your skin. To create the plastic texture, you have to layer the foundation (James Molloy used Face and Body Foundation M.A.C). Apply the foundation with your hands as shown in the photo gallery and really massage it deep into the skin. It is key to create that plastic texture. The more layers you apply the more 'plastic' it becomes. Don't use any powder so the skin really shines in all the right places.
Step 2: Use a fluid concealer to hide imperfections. Apply the product with a small brush. Don't forget your nostrils, your inner eye corners, the skin under your eyes and your eyelids.
Step 3: Highlight the nose bridge and cheeks with a highlighter (Prep + Prime Highlighter M.A.C)
Step 4: Choose a creamy eye shadow in a bright color for the eyebrows and apply with a small brush. For a more wearable look choose an eyeliner in a bright color for your eyelids.
Step 5: Apply a beige eyeliner on the inside part of your lower eyelid (M.A.C NC15/NW20).
Step 6: Apply a transparent lip balm on the lips.
