Backstage Beauty: LAMB

Well, reactions to Gwen's LAMB fashion show have been mixed. Fab and most of you loved it, but Cathy Horyn at the New York Times called it "ditzville." (Maybe it's a generation gap?) Anyway, I can say that the makeup looked great. It definitely felt like something Gwen would like, and the smoky eye was soft and pretty enough that anyone can wear it.

Once again, I have the scoop on all of the products used in the show, so

Face: The face was sprayed with M∙A∙C Fix Plus to prepare the skin for application and makeup. For sheer coverage, M∙A∙C Studio Moisture Fix and M∙A∙C Face and Body Foundation was applied.

Eyes: Eyes were the focus and inspiration for this look. To create a dramatic, stretched out eye, M∙A∙C Matte² Eye Shadow in Blanc Type was applied all over the lid as a base. In the crease, grays and blue shades were blended; M∙A∙C Matte² Eye Shadow in Prussian, M∙A∙C Matte² Eye Shadow in Typographic, M∙A∙C Matte² Eye Shadow Soot and M∙A∙C Eye Shadow in Fade. Eyes were lined carefully with M∙A∙C Kohl Eye Pencil in Smolder. M∙A∙C Fluidline in Blacktrack was used to wing out the eye, stretching it up and out, while following bone structure. For thick lashes, one full strip of M∙A∙C Pro #6 lashes were applied to lash line and extra half strip of M∙A∙C Pro #6 lashes on the outer corners of eyes.

Lips: M∙A∙C Crème Color Base for Lips in Fawntastic was applied with a patting motion using finger.
