“The look is dramatic but with a softness to it. The inspiration for the collection was Botticelli and the contrast of black and white; the look pairs a strong eye and a soft lip.”—Diane Kendal, lead makeup artist

Eye: Diane created a warm smoky eye by first blending MAC Smolder Eye Kohl along lash lines and the crease of the lids, then sweeping a black-brown shadow across the lids and under the eyes.

Face: Taupe powder blush sculpted the cheekbones. Pink blush on the apples of cheeks and a gold highlight on the tops of cheekbones balanced the drama of the smoky eye.

Lip: Diane used a layer of nude cream-texture lipstick to cover the natural color of the lips, followed by a sheer white frost.

Pro Tip: “To create a warm smoky eye, blend an eye shadow in a brown hue over the lids.”
