MAC makeup artist Kristin Gallegos designed the look for Naeem Khan’s Spring/Summer 2011 show. The makeup was inspired by 1990‘s Versace in Miami. The foundation was done using MAC Face and Body Foundation. It was applied a shade darker than each model’s skintone and Mineralized Skin Finished was added to give a sun kissed glow. The face was highlighted with Pearl Sunshine Powder.
Gold Metal Remnant, a metallic gold shadow, was blotted on the lid and outside of the eye. A lighter shade, Dalliance, was used to highlight the brow bone and the inner corner of the eye. Dalliance is due to hit shelves in Spring 2011. Center Stage, a dark brown metallic shadow, was used under the eye to add a bit of depth and darkness while Gilded White Power Pencil was used to line the inner rim of the eye. Lashes were well defined using Haute and Naughty mascara on both the top and bottom lashes.
The apple of the cheeks were done in So sweet – So Easy Creme Blush to brighten up the face, compliment the bronze of the face and skin, as well as the intricately designed, jeweled and embroidered pieces in the line. A combination of lip products were incorporated to finish the look.
The bronzed skin, gold shadow with bold lashes and big hair, designed by Laurent Phillipon, was perfect to complete Naeem Khan’s love affair with Miami.
