Backstage at the Cristiano Burani SS2016 fashion show we interviewed Jabe, make-up artist. Jabe explained us the make-up techniques and textures he used for the gorgeous make-up look he created.
‘For this catwalk show [Cristiano Burani] I wanted a really fresh girl with a Woodstock feeling, a girl that loves to be outside.’
‘So I put some color on the cheeks, really transparent, and I played with only texture, really smooth and transparent for which I used products of Clinique. So I created a really shiny skin. I didn’t use powder at all. Only a little bit of concealer and a little bit of foundation to cover up little imperfections.’
‘For the cheeks and lips I used Chubby Stick [Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm Clinique]. This product is very transparent but gives the skin color at the same time. I like the effect of the lips. In French we say ‘lèvres mordues’ (bitten lips), when the lips show just a little bit of color. It looks really fresh.’
‘The eyebrows are really important. As a texture I used only eye shadow of Clinique, and it is a mix between two browns, to create the perfect color for each girl. So I drew the eyebrow but the texture is really smooth so the balance is really good.’
‘And then I put a touch of black mascara on the top lashes. On the eyelid itself I created a ‘cloud’ of blue. Here I played with three different blues: a light blue, a green blue and a dark blue, and depending on the skin tone of the girl and her outfit I mixed the right tone of blue. And so it looks like a cloud of color on the eyes.’
‘A product I am really crazy about this season is Smart Treatment Oil of Clinique. It is perfect to highlight the skin. I put it on the cheekbones, on the lips and just a touch in the inner corner of the eyes. It is like a touch of light, a kind of romantic. So the skin is very tender but the look is strong.’
‘The skin is everything is season. It is like a canvas. So we have to be careful and we have to play with some different products to respect the skin texture.’
