The first day of the most anticipated fashion event kicked off Thursday in the big apple. Yes, New York Fashion Week started February 11, 2016. One of the best shows to kick off this world-renowned fashion event was the Creatures of Comfort show. Creatures of Comfort is unique because they allow independent and innovative fashion designers to showcase their individual designs, including Thursday night when they did just that. Shiseido’s artistic director Dick Page went right to work backstage on the models’ face for the show.
Page was inspired by the romantic yet practical look and feel of the collection, which balances femininity and masculinity in perfect harmony. Page created a very fresh makeup look that was strong and refined yet very ladylike. “The look is transparent and light, both on the runway and in photos.” – Dick Page, Shiseido Artistic Director said about this particular makeup look.
So, is it possible to re-create this look at home? Absolutely.
First and foremost, Page prepped the models skin. He used the Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisturizer followed by the Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF20. This product was applied lightly to the face to even out the skin tone. It was also applied for sheer coverage, as well. Using a Blush Brush, Page applied a sample of the blush stick to the face and started blending towards the apples of the cheeks. This works amazingly to add a flush of color.
As Page continued with this look, he applied basic sample of Shimmering Cream Eye Color. As he continued with the eyes, he applied the same cream eye color to the lids and under the lower lash line, while the Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Shoyu was lightly applied. Blending out from the lash line using the Shiseido Eye Shadow Brush (Medium) for a scruffy look, Page applied the Shiseido Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment to the lids. This works to melt the colors around the eyes for a wet look. For the brows, strong yet amped-up eyebrows were achieved using the Shiseido Eyebrow Styling Compacts which were applied using the Shiseido Eye Shadow Brush (Medium).
To finish the look, Page applied the Shiseido Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment. He, then applied the Shiseido Rouge Rouge in Sweet Desire. This is a new shade for Fall 2016. As Shiseido’s creative director continued, he applied the Rouge Rouge in Rouge Rum Punch onto the center of the lower lip gently with his fingertip.
Congratulations! You have just re-created the Creatures of Comfort makeup look for Fall and Winter 2016 at New York Fashion Week. #NYFW
