For Fall Fashion Week 2010, designer Susan Cianciolo collaborated with Christopher Drummond of Christopher Drummond Beauty. The result of these two eco-friendly forces colliding was a fun, dramatic, colorful and thought provoking palette (that showed that color doesn’t just have to be for spring and summer!)
According to Christopher,
“When Susan and I were talking about the look, it was very organic, literally. Her clothes are organic, and my makeup is organic-based. We took her idea of the vibrant colors that are displayed under the sea and translated them onto the face. The result was lines and stripes of blended bright colors that melted together.”
Also, Christopher and Susan decided to step out-of-the-box by giving each of the twelve models a different look that reflected their personality.
Here are the steps Christopher used to create the look:
· Concealer was applied to the face with Christopher Drummond Beauty (CDB) Velduo Velvet Foundation over it. Christopher covered the eyebrows with concealer as a base for the eye color
· Next, Christopher dipped his angled eye shadow brush into a color that would work for the model. He drew a thick, angled line from above the brow to the lashes, in one swipe. He repeated this until he had the desired color saturation. He used various colors that he thought would be interesting and used three to five different color strips on each eye
· On the bottom lashline, Christopher used one color from the outer corner to the middle, and another from the inner corner of the eye to the middle, and then blended the two together so there were two liner colors on the bottom
· Instead of using mascara, Christopher allowed the eyeshadow color to fall on the lashes to create a beautiful, dramatic, multicolored eyelash.
· Finally, Christopher painted the lips with concealer to finish the look.
And here are Christopher’s tips for translating the look from the runway to the street:
· Pick three subtle colors that you like, and place the CDB natural cocealer as a primer all over the eyelid
· Separate the eyelid in three even sections with a liner brush and a small amount of shadow (kind of like a stencil)
· Next, take a medium amount of the shadow, and press it into one section. Blend it in well.
· Do the same with the other two sections
