This was one of the looks at the Georges Chakra show; a stunning emerald green eye and a deep red blush on the face. For the eyes, use the ColourPop Super Shock Eyeshadow in “Empire”. To achieve a really pigmented color, use your fingertips to apply the shadow. The warmth and oil on the fingers allows for better application. To mimic the deep blush on the cheeks, try Too Faced Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo. Simply swipe the blush onto the cheeks, and build the color.
This look from the George Hobeika show, features an effortlessly bronzed complexion, with an understated nude lip. For a hint of glow that makes you look like you just came back from St. Tropez, try the Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer. Swipe it onto you forehead, just below your cheek bones, and onto your jawline and chin. For a nude lip that emphasizes the natural shape of your lips, try the Kylie Cosmetics matte lip kit in Kylie. Use the lip liner to outline the lips and then fill in with the lipstick.
This final look from the Stephane Rolland runway showcases a bold dark eye with statement brows. To achieve the same smokey eye look, use a pencil liner like Marc Jacobs’ Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer. This liner can create smooth lines, but also can be smudged out to create a smokey look. For a statement brow, there is nothing better than using Glossier’s most famous product — Boy Brow. The product fills in the brows with pigment, while the locking each hair into place for the perfect angular brow.
