Maybelline and L'Oreal @ Vivienne Tam
For Fall 2010, Vivienne Tam was inspired by the Chinese Zodiac: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. Models wore red lips and hair was slicked back in ponytails inspired by the horsetail.
Hair stylist Bok-Hee sculpted a look that was influenced by the blend of Tam's traditional China doll style and a new and intriguing modern edge and roughness. "Sumo wrestler, graphic, horror.. these were all elements that motivated this look," said Bok-Hee.
Maybelline makeup artist Charlotte Willer created a color palette inspired by Tam's signature Porcelain doll look. "I used bright, bold red lips and kept the rest of the face very natural for a healthy, clean look," said Willer. "The focus is definitely on the lip. Vivienne wanted red lips."
GET THE LOOK
-Apply a light layer of Mineral Power Liquid Foundation and then a light coat of Mineral Liquid Concealer to the face.
-Use Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil to groom the brows, using a shade right for your skin. Then, in the inner corner of the eye use a shimmery highlighting eyeshadow.
-For lips, use Color Sensational Lip Liner in Red for a bold and shiny lip.
- Pull the very bottom of your hair into a tight pony tail. Continue by connecting the top half of your hair and your bottom half in a very tight ponytail with a long elastic so that the pony is sticking out from your head. Use lots of styling gel and hairspray such as L'oreal Elnett Deluxe Hairspray to prevent flyaways.
