London Fashion Week Beauty: Vibrant Eyes At Peter Pilotto AW11
Models were given extremely vibrant eyes by make-up artist Lisa Houghton (using Chantecaille makeup) using shades of yellow, blue and pink, which were counterbalanced by keeping the rest of the face neutral and matte.
Lisa explained, "I wanted to create a beautifully flawless complexion with bright vibrant eyes."
Job well done! To see how you can get the look, check over the cut for Lisa's instructions.
Lisa says: "Chantecaille Future Skin is perfect for this look as it's so light and hydrating. You can build it in layers to create the perfect coverage. The Lemongrass and Aqua eye shades were the exact shades I wanted to create bold and vibrant eyes."
The face was prepped with flower harmonising cream and biodynamic lifting fluid to create a flawless matt finish.
A very pale complexion with a flawless finish was created using both Porcelain and Alabaster Future Skin Foundations and Subtle Loose Powder. The cheeks were kept soft with a dusting of cheek shade Ecstasy.
Eyes were the main focus of the look. To create texture and rich colour Lisa Houghton crushed Iridescent Eye Shade in Lemongrass to create a chalky consistency - this was applied all over the eye socket. Lisa then blended Ecstasy cheek shade and Lilac Rose eye shade with a Brilliant Gloss, Crystalline to give it a shiny appearance and staying power. The eyes were finished with Menthe eye shade in the corners of the eye for definition and to the outer corners shocking Iridescent Eye Shade in Aqua.
Faux Cils mascara was applied to both top and bottom lash lines and eye brows were emphasised using Chantecaille brow definer.
The lips were kept understated with protective Lip Potion before applying Hydra Chic in Canna. To highlight, a shimmer from the Tiger in the Wild palette was applied to the cupids bow only.
