Key Makeup Artist Polly Osmond for Created a Cleopatra-esqe Look for Christian Siriano’s Fall 2009 Runway Show.
According to Osmond, “The look was based on a modern take of an Egyptian feel. We used heavy golds and blacks. The eyes were lined underneath with VS Makeup Eyeliner in Black Velvet with a more square shape rather than cat like. On the top of eyelids we used a gold shadow (VS Makeup Silky Eyeshadow in Champagne). We highlighted the face using the champagne shadow and lightly contoured with the VS Makeup Goddess Bronzer. On the darker skins, we used the bronzer as the highlighter. Mascara was then applied to top lashes only. Lips were a heavy gold. (For a more wearable shade, try VS Makeup Brilliant Lip Shine in Charm).”
