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:

Eyes:

- 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.

Brows:

- MUFE HD Brow Corrector

Cheeks:

- MAC Goldn Bronzer to contour

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

Lips:

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