The look at Ann Demeulemeester's fashion show was so sharp that I thought you might like to see how it was done. MAC makeup artist Rudi Cremers said of the look's inspiration: “30s, Man Ray, shadows, light dropped from one side of the face.” The makeup is deceptively simple-looking, but I think it would be worth the effort if you wanted a sleek, modern face. For a step-by-step guide,

Face: Face and Body Foundation was applied as a base with touches of Studio Touch up stick where needed. MAC Nudes and Shapers were used with Brush # 136 to sculpt the face and contour cheekbones. The contours on the right side of the face were darker than the contours on the left side.

Eyes: Stray Gray Paint Pot was applied through the fold of the eye with more concentration on the inner center of the crease. Using a MAC #219 brush, MAC Era and Satin Taupe Eye Shadows were warred on top. Dazzlelight Eye Shadow was then dusted over the lid and onto the outer portion of the crease.

On the left side, Coffee Eye Pencil was drawn to the top lash line only. On the right side of the face, Coffee Eye Pencil was applied to the top and bottom lash lines, as well as to the inner corner of the right eye. Black Pro Lash was applied to top lashes from the center of the eye to the inner corner only.

For a masculine brow, M∙A∙C Show Stopper Eye Shadow was dusted over brows with Brush #266. Coffee Eye Pencil was then drawn on top of brows. On the right side of the face, the liner was also drawn from the brow down the right side of the nose.

Lips: Florabundance Lip Gloss was patted onto lips with fingers.
