Shiseido @ Zero + Maria Cornejo
Maria Cornejo's designs are always full of interesting patterns, draping, and shapes. So for her Spring 2010 show, lead makeup artist Dick Page conceptualized an "almost like nothing" look to balance out the Chilean-born designer's collection."The whole idea is to not read any makeup on the girls so that they look very fresh," said Page. "I'm using a powder brush kind of in the wrong way. Usually you use it to brush over foundation and powder for a matte finish, but I am using the tips of the brush against bare skin to create a flush."
Designer Maria Cornejo's spring collection was filled with clothes that are "interesting but make you look good," said the designer. Likewise, the makeup was understated but still beautiful. Shiseido's makeup artist Dick Page didn't use any concealer or foundation in order to keep the look "au natural," playing off the nature-inspired fashion. Brows were filled in for a fuller effect, and lashes were curled and coated with mascara. A carnation pink blush was used all over the face, while a rosy shade was concentrated on cheeks. To finish, Dick dabbed on a new sheer plum lipstick to achieve translucency.
GET THE LOOK
Cheeks: Dick used the Luminizing Satin Face Color Tea Rose (RS302) from the Spring 2010 Collection and applied on the models’ bare skin, just on the cheeks and nose to give a sun-kissed look.
Eyes: Dick lined the top and bottom lash line with the Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Brown (BR602) from the 2009 Fall Makeup Collection. To give the look a little bit of slip, he applied a dab of the Accentuating Color Stick in Champagne Flush (S3) underneath the eyes. After curling the lashes, Dick applied a touch of the Perfect Mascara in Black (BK901) from the Fall 2009 Makeup Collection. Dick used the Natural Eyebrow Pencil from the Fall 2009 Makeup Collection if the eyebrows were very light and brushed up the hairs simultaneously.
Lips: Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer Lipstick in Pout (RS326) from the Spring 2010 Collection was applied like a lip liner and patted to fill in the rest of the lip to create a soft, translucent lip.
