“The focus for me was always the skin; using skincare with makeup to reflect and absorb light within, and around the face. We ushered in a sense of architectural structure by sculpting cheekbones and temples. The eyes were the vehicle to delivering a sense of motion. We wanted to make a linear statement with colour, translating in levels of bold and graphic liner.” – Makeup Artist, Sir John on creating the look for Tracy Reese Fall 2015
Makeup Artist, Sir John explains how to get the look with La Prairie:
SKIN: radiant, lit-from-within
Cellular Softening and Balancing Lotion – helps prep skin by retaining moisture while soothing and refreshing skin.
Cellular Radiance Cream – leaves skin looking luminous and lit-from-within. Fresh, hydrated skin that reflects light was the focus.
Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Eye Cream – applied under the eye to brighten and help prevent makeup from caking.
Skin Caviar Concealer • Foundation SPF 15 – applied to face and neck to even out skin tone only where needed. Creates flawless coverage with a soft dewy finish.
Light Fantastic Cellular Concealing • Brightening Eye Treatment – used to highlight areas of the face where sun would naturally illuminate; under tear ducts, above the cheekbones, sides of nose, and high planes of the brow bone. Tip: blend well.
Cellular Treatment Bronzing Powder and Cellular Treatment Eye Colour in Topaz – applied to the cheekbones to accentuate and sculpt. Also used to create definition on the temples.
EYES: strong, colourful & graphic
Luxe Eye Liner Automatique in Brun or Noir – was used to line the entire inner rim of the eye as well as the upper lash line to create a mesmeric visual statement.
Luxe Eye Liner Automatique, Luxe Lip Liner Automatique and Cellular Treatment Eye Colour Ensemble – colours were crushed and blended first to create a creamy texture. They were then applied using a fan brush; pre-cut to create levels of vivid graphic liner.
Cellular Treatment Mascara Instant Build – apply 3-4 coats of mascara on the upper lashes.
LIPS: fresh, healthy, nude
Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection à Porter – used to plump the lips and keep them hydrated.
Cellular Luxe Lip Enhancer – apply Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection à Porter and using fingertip, blend in the Lip Enhancer to create a healthy nude lip.
