Backstage at New York Fashion Week- The Vessel

MAKE UP FOR EVER ALLIANCE artist, A.J. Crimson, served as key make up artist for the Vessel, by lois Spring/Summer 2011 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. A.J. was inspired by the beautiful colors in the collection, as well as the structure of the clothing.

To bring the make up to life, A.J. created a colorful cat eye that was bold yet simple at the same time.

Complexion & Cheeks: The complexion was fresh and sunny. A.J. first applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Face & Body Foundation to give the skin a healthy spring-time glow. MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #10 was dusted on the cheeks and then blended into the skin for a soft wash of orange color.

To illuminate the face, MAKE UP FOR EVER Star Powder #940 was swept along the upper cheek bones and the top of the nose.
Eyes: The eyes were the focal point of the look. A.J. created a strong cat eye using either MAKE UP FOR EVER Aquarelle #3 (blue) or Aquarelle #6 (green) on alternating models. Aquarelle was applied to the eyes using a liner brush to create a modified cat eye shape – the wing was extended beyond the outer edge of the eye for a burst of color, and there was additional detail on the lid for a peek-a-boo effect.

Lips: The lips were neutral and muted slightly with MAKE UP FOR EVER Face & Body Foundation to create a clean canvas that allowed the rest of the face to stand out.

I would rock that winged out eyeliner pretty hard, just saying. How do you feel about this look?

    I like this look, its simple but striking. The blue looks stunning against the models skin tone. Would love to see more pics of it.
