In addition, Turnbow was the lead makeup artist for Doucette Duvall’s show. She created Tarte’s look by using eco-friendly products such as Lash Hugger Eco-friendly Natural Mascara and Tarte’s new straw palette, Spring Greening, which features a bamboo brush, mineral shadows and vitamin-infused glosses. The palette will launch in February 2009.
MAC Cosmetics in New York
Once again, MAC, a sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, was an arbiter of the key makeup looks on the runway. For Carolina Herrera, the look was dramatic but had an innate softness. “The inspiration for the collection was Botticelli and the contrast of black and white, so the look is a contrast of a strong eye and a soft lip,” said makeup artist Diane Kendal. The eyes were made up with Smolder Eye Kohl from MAC and Lucky Tom eye shadow. MAC Pro Sculpting Powder contoured the face, swept along the cheekbone, and Tippy Powder Blush was applied to the cheek. Nude MAC Pro Cream Colour Base was patted onto the lips, with Lip Conditioner patted over Nude Cream Colour Base, and Bubbles Lipstick layered over the lip conditioner.
Makeup artist James Kaliardos designed the look for Nicole Miller with a plum, smoky eye as the focus. “The look is a soulful voodoo girl who can cast spells,” he said. Zoomblack Zoom Lash Mascara applied to the top lashes and lightly touched onto the lower lashes, plus Fun and Games Beauty Powder Blush applied to the cheekbones, highlighted the face. Blankety Lipstick and C-Thru Tinted Lipglass blended onto the lips gave them a soft edge.
Kaliardos, who also created the makeup for Catherine Malandrino, drew on a French vibe for inspiration. “It’s a bit Edith Piaf, but the skin and a sensual orange lip keep it contemporary,” he added. For cheeks, he applied Fun and Games Powder Blush buffed into the upper portion of the cheekbones and Luna Cream Colour Base on the high planes of the cheekbones. He applied Gentle Coral Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 as a base and top coat to the lips, blotted and finished with Rich Coral MAC Pro Cream Colour Base.
As with the colorful theme of much of the spring 2009 fashion collections, color popped in makeup, whether in deep red or orange lips, as well as in hair color, especially in the styles shown during Betsey Johnson’s show.
