FW: Backstage Beauty – Donna Karan Spring/Summer 2012

15 Sep
MAC and Donna Karan Spring/Summer 2012

80’s glam was the inspiration for Donna Karan’s Spring/Summer 2012 beauty look. With Yasmin Le Bon as her muse, it makes perfect sense why the lip is bold and the skin is warm and glossy. With the help of MAC Senior Makeup Artist Charlotte Tilbury, Donna Karan opted to take the bold lip from spring/summer 2011 and carry it into next spring/summer but with a twist. Charlotte opts for a deeper, more dramatic lip that takes on an edgier feel than the popsicle bright hues that dominated lips this year. Skin is given a glossy sheen for that slick yet chic look we all so desperately want to achieve on our own. MAC’s Charged Face and Body Lotion conditions the skin while Face and Body Foundation in the tone matching the model’s chest is used to warm up the skin. On cheeks, MAC’s Pro Mid Tone Sepia Cream Colour Base defines and contours cheekbones. The highlight is MAC’s Luna Cream Colour Base. Lips are the focal point for this look which means a dark, matte lip color. Start off with MAC’s Bittersweet Pro Longwear Lip Pencil followed by Full Chocolate and Most Mocha Lipsticks. Donna went a bold direction using a brown lip shade for spring but something about this sexy look works for us!
