Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim: Day One – MAKE UP FOR EVER for Ed Hardy Swim

The  love of my life, James Vincent, worked his magic backstage for Ed Hardy Swim at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami. Now clearly, I am not an Ed Hardy kind of girl but my love for James and MAKE UP FOR EVER compels me to report….


MAKE UP FOR EVER ALLIANCE artist, James Vincent (, served as the key make up artist for the Ed Hardy swim show on Friday, July 16th.  James created a bold black eye and strong red lip for a glamorous, old Hollywood look.

Complexion & Cheeks: The skin was bronzed and dewy with highlights on the brow bone and high cheek.

Eyes:  To get a neutral base for the eye, James applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Shadow #156 up to the brow bone.  He then created a thick rim around the top of the eye extending to the liner beyond the outer corner of the lid using MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Black, and he then went on to rim the lower lash line as well.  He finished by applying two coats of MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Smoky Lash.

Lips:  For a gorgeous pop of red on the lips, James applied MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #8.
