Get The Look: Atelier Versace SS14 Runway Make-up
Blue may be the colour of the season when it comes to this Spring but is it something that anyone can wear? Well, in the case of Pat McGrath’s look for the Versace couture show the answer would be yes, as the combination of both warm and cool tones in this look mean that it can suit any eye colour or skin tone. Accent shades are also a great way to introduce a pop of colour to your make-up routine if you’re not used to wearing it especially when framed by classic black liner and mascara to give definition and contrast.
To begin recreating this look, start out with a clean fresh base and swap blusher for contouring using a matte, neutral shader and angled contouring brush such as MUA’s F6 Blusher & Contouring brush. If you don’t have an angled brush you can squeeze the bristles a the base of a normal powder brush to stiffen and fan them out for added control.
For eyes choose a warm, golden flecked beige eye shadow, about 2-3 tones deeper than your own skin tone, blend this around the eye, into the socket line and along the lower lash line as well. For the pop of blue try Stila eye pencil in “Peacock” taking it up from the tear duct to where lashes begin. To finish and frame eyes black liner was used along the outter top lashes and also in the water line followed by strip lashes, although a few coats of good mascara will work just as well. Polish off the whole look using a moisturising, nude lipstick like Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Canotier.
