The Little Joe Woman show was a big success at RAFW this week and the team at Lancome were behind the scenes to do the makeup, everything from the perfect eyes to the stunning purple nail polish.
The brand’s National Makeup Expert Michael Brown was the man in charge of creating the runway ready looks, and here he explains how to get the look at home…
“My inspiration came from Clare’s fantastic new pieces and colour palette of rich summery desert gold’s, tangerines mixed with a dash of purple!
The look has a warm and fresh feel with a tangerine focus bold lip mixed with yellow gold tones across the eyes.
Then for more wow factor I added blended purple tones on the inner corner of the eye sockets for contrast and teamed it with a modern sleek purple nail varnish which will add that extra rich touch to the overall fun yet chic look”.
How to Get the Look:
- Complexion: For luminosity in the skin I mixed Genifique Youth Activator and Teint Miracle with my foundation brush, which was then applied in a sweeping motion on the skin for a ‘No Streak’ effect.Eclat Miracle was also applied on the cheekbone in a dabbing technique for extra glow.
- Eyes: For a softer blend of shadow always layer the colours for a complete fusion of colours – Ultra Lavande Deep Lavander was softened with the Mustard Gold of D25 Ombre Absolue .For an extra highlight under the eye we used Renergie Multiple Lift Eye Duo highlighter dabbing on inner lower eye to give a complete fresh under eye appearance.
- Lips: Dab lipstick with your fingertip onto the lip for a soft and raw look – this gives a great stain, not a precise over made up lipstick approach.
