The beauty for this ultra-luxe collection was inspired by a modern-day Verushka braving the Polar Vortex for a glamorous night out. With elements from iconic 60’s beauty looks, Grace worked brown Lasting Drama Gel Liner into the crease, and blended it out for a softer take on the classic “banana boat” liner. She blended Crayon Kohl Liner by Color Show in Chocolate Chip into the top and bottom lash lines and added the same pencil in Barely Beige to the waterline. Grace encouraged her team to be “very generous” when applying multiple layers of Pumped Up! Colossal mascara. To create a wintery sun-kissed look, Grace worked FitMe Bronzer into the skin and blended Master Glaze in Pink Fever into the cheeks to give the effect of wind burn. For the final touch, Grace used Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Too Cool to add a frosty highlight to the skin. And that perfect nude lip? It’s all about The Buffs by Color Sensational in Nude Lust.
The designers describe the inspiration for this line as “A mythical forest.” This collection is soft and very feminine, with an added emphasis on bright colours rather than the neutral shades that they tend to favour. Taking a cue from the inspiration, Grace created an otherworldly graphic silver eye, accented with a matte, bright pink lip courtesy of Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivids LipColor in Vivid Rose. Color Whisper by Color Sensational LipColor in Faint for Fuschia was brushed onto the entire lip, and Vivid Rose was layered on top and concentrated in the centre for a three dimensional effect.
To match the flirty femininity of the collection’s glamorous dresses, Grace chose a classic red lip to take centre stage. She stuck to subtle shading for the eyes with Expertwear Eyeshadow in Earthly Taupe applied into the crease. She brushed brows up with clear Great Lash Mascara and coated top and bottom lashes with Pumped Up! Colossal Mascara. She mixed three products to give skin a luminous glow: Baby Lips in Quenched, Expertwear Eyeshadow in Vanilla and Color Tattoo in Barely Branded. The crowning glory of the look – the lips – was created with Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor in On Fire Red.
All of these pretty looks are easy to do at home and you won’t spend a fortune on the products. These three looks are sure to inspire you for Spring!
