Makeup artist Kabuki for MAC Cosmetics created the glamorous and mildly villainous look backstage at The Blonds Fall 2010 runway show this week.
Of his collaboration with the corset-loving designers, Kabuki said, “They gave me a direction but they didn’t micromanage me.”
The makeup look was mildly exaggerated to complement the clothes. The final model, dressed in metallics, was able to be more of a “villain,” while the other girls in the show had a Jean Harlow/Marilyn Monroe and Marlena Deitrich (“when she was a nice girl”) vibe happening.
To get the alternate Blonds look at home, think “Dita!” and try false lashes, curled and applied in the corner of the eyes for a winged effect.
Next, using shadow, create a white eyelid with a neutral shade in crease. Precise winged eyeliner visually “lifts” the eye when applied horizonally and a matte red lip finishes the look.
