Prabal Gurung Spring Summer 2012 – The Lips Have It.
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2012is off and running and the key makeup artists have not disappointed. We have seen everything from blue and purple matte lips to gorgeous ethereal fairy tale looks.
We will be sharing some of my favorites over the next week, so make sure to stay tuned. The first show I’m going to mention is the Prabal Gurung.
Lead artist Charlotte Tillbury used the lip to inspire the rest if the look. She said “Prabal wanted the lips to feel like there was an orchid growing out of them”. Tillbury, who was there with MAC Cosmetics, outlined the lip in MAC PRO Lip Pencil Process Magenta and then filled it with a blend, having black as the inside color and like a flower getting lighter as it opens.
The skin was very dewey/shiny and on the eyes she used two colors which are not available until nest spring, MAC Metal-X cream shadow in Warm Thunder and Warm Venus, putting the more concentrated color on the inside of the eye. She then did a slight contour and used MAC Strobe cream in Pearl as a highlight.
I really love this look and the thought process behind it. Tillbury is such a phenomenal artist and one that I admire so.
