While the world of fashion is telling you all about what’s coming up for Spring 2012, I wanted to bring you back to the present with a look at how to create the makeup trends for fall 2011.
I know, I know, you heard all about fall 2011 months ago but it never hurts to revisit and glean a few new ideas and makeup combinations you can incorporate into your look today.
If you didn’t read my post on the top 4 makeup trends for fall, go there now then be sure to come back and see how master makeup artists interpret those trends.
Here’s a peek at how Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director for Estée Lauder, interpreted the Boy-Girl trend at the Derek Lam fall 2011 show.
Note: Derek Lam is said to have been inspired by wanting to recombine and recreate looks that are fresh and modern for the woman that is sophisticated and put together, sultry, strong, and manicured yet feminine. The makeup reflects this tone with a strong eye, and subtle lip - a perfect boy-girl aesthetic.
Notice how Tom Pecheux incorporates key elements of the boy-girl trend with strong lines used in the shadow application, bold brows, bare lashes and matte lips. Gorgeous!
