FW SS11: Fekkai & Napoleon Perdis @ Elise Overland

Napoleon Perdis said, "The collection was inspired by a '60s mod look, but I wanted to make it not costumey, and creating a vertical instead of a horizontal eye, making the eye bigger up and down, and using Air Brush Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation to create freshness."


Perdis says the three key elements to duplicating this look are primer, spray foundation, and mascara. For the full look, use the Napoleon Perdis Complex Skin Renewal Serum, followed by Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer as the base, and Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation to perfect the skin. Next, apply some Set Concealer Pen under the eyes, and for eyeshadow use Color Disc in Trenchcoat, a beigey-gold hue. On the lashes use Mesmer-Eyes Mascara on both top and bottom eyelashes, but don't go too '60s -- just a few coats will do. Last, go pale and natural on the lips with the Lip Pencil in Nude Awakening and DeVine Goddess lipstick in Hess.


Work Full Volume through the hair from roots to ends, followed by Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel. Blow dry with fingers, and separate hair into either a side or center part. Roll up the hair section by section, pin, and go about your routine of getting ready/putting on your makeup. Take the pins out, and finish with just a tiny bit of the Fekkai Coiff Nonchalant Piecing and Forming Wax.
