Everyone is talking about the looks and emerging trends that were seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week. On the runway of Tracy Reese Fall 2015 show the models were all about radiant skin, sculpted cheeks, graphic eye liner and a healthy nude lip. Using makeup to reflect the light, makeup artist Sir John created a look with La Prairie products that was as fresh as the clothes they were wearing.
About the look that he created for the runway Sir John stated;
‘The focus for me was always the skin; using skincare with makeup to reflect and absorb light within, and around the face. We ushered in a sense of architectural structure by sculpting cheekbones and temples. The eyes were the vehicle to delivering a sense of motion. We wanted to make a linear statement with colour, translating in levels of bold and graphic liner.’
If you’re loving the look from the runway, Sir John has provided step by step instructions to recreate his radiant runway look starting with your skin all the way to your lips. Here are the instructions:
Sir John use radiant, lit-from-within Cellular Softening and Balancing Lotion, since it helps prep the skin by retaining moisture while soothing and refreshing it. Cellular Radiance Cream, which leaves skin looking luminous and lit-from-within was then applied to create the appearance of fresh, hydrated skin that reflected the light. For the eye area, Sir John used Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Eye Cream, which he applied under the eyes to brighten them and help prevent makeup from caking.
Luminous Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF 15 was applied to the face and the neck to even out skin tone only where needed, therefore creating allover flawless coverage with a soft dewy finish. Light Fantastic Cellular Concealing Brightening Eye Treatment was used next to highlight areas of the face where the sun would naturally illuminate the skin like under tear ducts, above the cheekbones, the sides of the nose, and the high planes of the brow bone. An extra Sir John Tip: Make sure to blend well!
Sir John then used Sculpted Cellular Treatment Bronzing Powder and Cellular Treatment Eye Colour in Topaz that was applied to the cheekbones to accentuate and sculpt them and also to create definition on the temples.
Strong, colorful & graphic Luxe Eye Liner Automatique in Brun or Noir was used to line the entire inner rim of the eye and the upper lash line to create a mesmeric visual statement. Luxe Eye Liner Automatique, Luxe Lip Liner Automatique and Cellular Treatment Eye Colour Ensemble were crushed and blended together to create a creamy texture. Sir John applied the blended colors to the eyes using a fan brush which was pre-cut to create levels of vivid graphic liner. Lastly Cellular Treatment Mascara Instant Build was applied on the upper lashes using 3-4 coats.
To plump up lips and keep them hydrated, Sir John used the fresh, healthy and nude Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection à Porter and applied with his fingertips. Cellular Luxe Lip Enhancer which was also applied with his fingertip was used, blending it into the lips to create a healthy nude lip.
