new york fashion week spring 2009....verrier

The makeup look of Verrier was created by MAC Lead Makeup Artist Gregory Arlt.

We would have loved to have been behind the scenes for this one!

The inspiration behind it is a dolly from the attic. Think Gretel from Hansel and Gretel who knows a little bit more than she did before she went into the woods.

All MAC products were used here.

For the face, Strobe Cream was massaged into the face with Face and Body Foundation applied sheerly to even out the skin tone. Dame and Well Dressed Powder Blush and Seedy Pearl Eye Shadow were blended to create a healthy glow on the apples of the cheeks.

Moving on to eyes, Seedy Pearl Eyeshadow was again used and brushed across the lid. Phloof! Eye Shadow was used as a highlighter under the eyebrow and along the side of the eye and down the bridge of the nose. Reflects Transparent Teal was popped on the eye as a dot on the finger and pressed onto the lid. Quarry Eye Shadow was lightly applied to the crease of the lid. Plushblack Plush Lash Mascara was applied to the tips of the lashes.

The lips definitely stand out like crazy. For that they used Girl About Town and Pink Nouveau Lipstick blended together and brushed onto the lips. An application of Clear Pro Longwear Gloss Coat was added on top.

Here's the finished look on the Verrier runway...

To make it a little more wearable for daytime office, or night out with your hubby or friends...we'd lighten up the blush.

Try going with just the Dame or the Well Dressed Powder Blush applied lightly to the cheeks for just a pop of pinky color.

Lighten up the lips a little by using a lighter pinkish gloss...try Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 in Petting Pink, or maybe try MAC Tinted Lipglass in Under Age or Florabundance.

With love (always),
