CND, MAC & Redken @ Twinkle
For her Fall 2010 collection, Twinkle designer Wenlan Chia made a fashionable escape into a fairy tale reminiscent of Hansel and Gretel. And the beauty team followed suit with whimsical hair and dramatic eyes and nails.
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP
Playing on the theme of the dark and slightly gothic, models were fitted with press-on nails coated with two layers of Dark Ruby, and softened with Super Matte topcoat, to create a crepe-like, textured effect. The length and shape were kept medium length and wearable, custom-fitted to each model's nails. Nail shape was square, with softly rounded edges.
Skin was kept soft, matte, and pale, with light contouring around the eyes and jawline with deep bronze blush (working name Laguna, a new shade of mineralize blush for fall). In a look that is all about the windows to our souls, models were treated to a glossy, smoky eye with the use of only one eyeshadow (working name Tarnished Bronze, which is new for fall) with clear gloss on top. Look was completed by toning down pout with MAC Pro Lip Erase.
GET THE LOOK - HAIR
Separate hair into two sections, horizontally. Apply Fabricate 03 Heat-Active Texturizer and Thickening Lotion 06 Body Builder to strands. Blowdry product throughout to bring out the natural texture of hair. Pull front section back into a ponytail, keeping sides tight and top loose. Incorporate front into back, winding into a low roll just off-to-the-side of the nape. Secure with bobby pins and finish with Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray.
