Honor by Giovanna Randall Fall 2011 Makeup Report

Honor Goes For a Red-Hot Look

The makeup look at Honor, Giovanna Randall's fledgling clothing line, was a beautifully bright mashup of three separate decades. "The collection has a '70s sensibility, but in an American sportswear way," lead makeup artist James Boehmer said of Randall's sophomore collection. "We didn't want the makeup or hair to look '70s, because then the clothes would, too." Instead, he dipped into the '90s for an "anarchistic" look, adding touches of club-kid style of the early '80s.

The touchstone of the look, an orangey-red eye look, was inspired by desert colors — no eye shadow necessary. Boehmer used Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil as a base, then blended two Nars blushes (Exhibit A and Taj Mahal) to create a look that contrasted with the rich teals, pinks, and yellows of the collection. The key to pulling off such bright shades? "Wear it with confidence and strength," says Boehmer.
