MAKE UP FOR EVER ALLIANCE artist, Lottie served as key make up artist for the Mara Hoffman fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami. The look featured a bold smoky eye with “desert outlaw” flair.
Complexion & Cheeks: Lottie gave the models a sun kissed glow by mixing MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Invisible Cover Foundation with MAKE UP FOR EVER Uplight #22 and blended it into the skin. She then gave definition to the face by sculpting with MAKE UP FOR EVER Mat Bronze to areas that the sun would naturally hit the face. MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Shadow #28E was blended onto temples for a strong pearly beige highlight.
Eyes: Lottie created an intense, smoky metallic eye by layering MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Shadow shades from lightest to darkest, and blending them outward towards the temple. For a deep contour, she used MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Shadow #0E in black on the lid, and then blended MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Shadow #172 in satiny black chocolate on top of MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Black under the eyes. She added a hint of desert gold by applying MAKE UP FOR EVER Metal Powder #1 in the inner corner of the eye with a small wet brush. To frame the eye, Lottie created statement brows using a mascara wand to fluff the hairs. She filled any empty space along the brow with MAKE UP FOR EVER Brow Pencil. The eye was finished with MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash applied to the upper and lower lashes.
Lips: Lottie applied Aqua Cream #9 for a pretty pop of coral on the lips.
