FaceTime: Runway Inspired Look No.2

5/22/13

There's a myriad of reasons why I'm excited for the warmer weather, and as a beauty lover, that holds a lot of beauty and skincare knowledge, it's the really fun makeup looks that come out! There is just so much colour everywhere, including cosmetics. Bright turquoise eyeliner, neon orange and pink lips and cheeks with nails of all colours. It's a feast for the eyes.

Upon looking at some of Vogue's featured Runway looks I was really inspired by the one done for Mr. Michael Kors. To compliment his runway looks, the model wore minimal makeup with a thick blue line across the crease of the eyelids. The striking blue look was completed using Make Up Forever's Eyeliner in Turquoise...

Of course, no woman is going to leave the house with some powder foundation and a thick, bright blue line across her eyelids, so I was inspired to create a friendlier ready-to-wear version of this look.
I kept my foundation and blush simple, not too heavy or flashy so as not to take away from the focus - the bright eyes. I stuck with a nude colour on the lips, again not to take the focus away from the point of attention. For the eyes, I took a light golden shade all over the lid and then worked a bright blue shade into the crease. This looks bold with my eyes closed, but talking to me face to face the blue only really peaks out right through the outer edge of my lashes - a perfect pop for summer! 





One of those moments when I was being directed and was just like "you mean like this?" and then my nose gets all scrunched up haha. ;)

Can you see the blue peaking through? Love it! 

Products used: 

Face
Revlon Whipped Colourstay Foundation 250 Medium Beige
MUFE HD Microfinish Powder
NYX Beige Concealer
MAC Pro-longwear concealer in NC20

Cheeks
Chanel Joues Contraste Reflex 82

Eyes
Smashbox Brow in Brunette
Bourjois Baked Eyeshadow in 94 (light golden colour)
MAC Eyeshadow in Barefoot (all over the lid)
TheBalm "The Balm and the Beautiful" Palette in The Police Man (bright blue shadow worked into the crease)
Chanel Eye Kohl in Blanc (on top of the Barefoot above my upper lashline and in my lower waterline)

Lips
MAC Lipstick in Pure Zen (this was limited edition, but I recommend MAC Hue or Revlon Peach Petal for alternate nude lip products!)

I can tell you that I will definitely wear this look again this summer just out and about during the day, it's fun to mix things up with the warmer weather and I promise you won't look out of place! Well, maybe a little, but in a omg-she's-so-chic way ;)
If you don't have that exact blue eyeshadow colour, you can use Rimmel ScandalEyes in "Tempting Turquoise" or their mono(single) eyeshadow in "Posh Peacock". These are more affordable drugstore options! 

What are you looking forward to rocking this summer? Do you enjoy bright blue eye shadows and bright blue eyeliners?

À Bientôt Mes Amours,
Kisti Belle
