Less was most definitely more backstage at Emanuel Ungaro Wednesday.
Sharon Dowsett, who was working with MAC Cosmetics, used a plethora of products to create a barely there makeup look.
“I don’t want [the models] to look tired. They should look like it’s the first day of their holidays,” said Dowsett.
FACE: Skin was prepped with MAC moisturizers followed by Fix+. To create a fresh base, Dowsett used a combination of Face and Body, Strobe Liquid and Strobe Cream.
CHEEKS: Blushcreme in Cherche was used on cheeks, followed by Emanuel Ungaro Cream Color Base in Crushed Bougainvillea, which was created for the fashion brand by MAC.
LIPS: A smidgen of Emanuel Ungaro See Thru Lip Color in Not So Shy was applied to the inner part of the lip, while Face and Body and Blushcreme in Cherche were used around the outer edges.
EYES: Eyelids were slicked with a blend of Gloss and Graphito Eye Paint, Eye Kohl in Smolder was dotted along lash lines and lashes were curled before being coated in Pro Lash mascara to create what Dowsett dubbed a “lamp-lit eye.”
