Marni, Modigliani, and Me: A Runway Inspired FOTD


I’m hardly what you would call a high fashion type of a girl in general, but I do love looking to the runways for makeup art inspiration each year- particularly Autumn/Winter RTW.

One of the runway looks that has stuck in my head over the years (possibly due to the simplicity and the resemblance to Modigliani paintings, which I adore)  is the looks that Tom Pecheaux created for Marni A/W RTW 2010 back when he was working for MAC Cosmetics. He used MAC Flourishing matte eyeshadow as a soft wash all over the lid right up to the brows, and MAC Spice lip pencil in the centre of the lips.

I used his idea of having MAC Flourishing eyeshadow all the way up to the brows, and switched up the lipstick to something a little bit vampier.

FOTD makeup breakdown:


– Two Faced Shadow Insurance to prime lids

– MAC Flourishing eyeshadow (a matte, khaki green) blended all over lid right up the brow. I concentrated most of the colour on the mobile lid area.

– Mixture of Bobbi Brown Espresso Ink and Black Ink Gel Liners to line upper lashline

– Bobbi Brown Espresso Ink Gel Liner pushed into bottom lashline on the outer 1/2.

– Majorca Majolica Lash Expander Plus mascara, plus my usual heated eyelash curler.


– MUFE HD Brow Corrector


– MAC Goldn Bronzer to contour

– Estee Lauder Sensuous Rose blush on apples (reviewed and swatched here)


– MUFE Waterproof Liner #13 to line and fill in lips

– MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Good To Be Bad (reviewed and featured in this Lipstick Bandit post_

    Out of my observation, shopping for gadgets online may be easily expensive, however there are some how-to’s that you can use to help you get the best discounts. There are generally ways to obtain discount specials that could help to make one to buy the best consumer electronics products at the lowest prices. Thanks for your blog post.
