The models on Hervé Léger's Spring 2012 runway looked gorgeous as they strutted down the runway with glowing skin, shimmery eye makeup, and bold brows. We caught up with Temptu's Lisa Butler, the lead makeup artist for the show, to get the lowdown behind the beauty look and how you can get a similar style at home. Watch the video to find out more.
At Karen Walker, boyishness was big. "The keyword for this look is tomboy," explained makeup artist Lisa Butler. "We're approaching it like when you do a man's grooming." That means clean, simple skin, full eyebrows, and a slight downplaying of the eyes and lips.
To create this fresh skin look, Butler used Mineralize Skinfinish to even out imperfections while leaving the complexion looking natural. A bit of taupe eye shadow helped give eyebrows a fluffed-up appearance, and skipping mascara emphasized the urchin aspect of the look.
While plump lips are always desirable, this show de-emphasized them with a cool trick: Use a fluffy brush to brush a tiny bit of concealer on the edges of lips. "It knocks down the girliness," Butler explained. I think it's fresh and fun, so why not cue up some Blur and try it out?
