I love to sneak behind the scenes and find out beauty tips and inspiration for fashion weeks. One of my clear favourites was Dolce&Gabanna AW17 at Milan Fashion week.
The fashion collection inspired by an urban interpretation of Rinascimento and the Designers’ vision was complemented by a make-up look highlighting a perfect skin with a glowing finish, iconic feline eyes and beautiful lips. Nails in nudes and reds completed the look. Simply divine!
A flawless complexion was achieved starting with The Primer, followed by the Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation blended outward, from the centre of the face out towards the ears. The Perfect Luminous Concealer was applied to the shadowed areas of the face and dabbed under the eyes creating an impeccable base with an even skin tone. The cheeks displayed a natural flush by being delicately swept with the Creamy Blush in different shades onto the apples of the cheeks and up towards the ears. The face was softly contoured with the Creamy Bronzer in Rosa del Deserto 50 and highlighted using the Creamy Illuminator in Rosa del Mattino 60 along the cheekbones and on the bridge of the nose. The skin was finally set with a light dusting of the Perfection Veil Pressed Powder across the nose and forehead.
The feline eye look was achieved with Perfect Mono Eyeshadow in Innocence 10, blended across the eyelids. Complementary shades of nude and brown from The Eyeshadow Quad in Smoky 105 was applied with a blending blush along the crease of the eyelids to create depth. For added definition, The Eyeliner in Nude 9 to the inner rim of the eyes. The upper lash line was amplified by applying The Eyeliner in Chocolate 10, and a line of Glam Liner in Black Intense 1 was drawn along the upper lash line, to add an intense feline finish. On the curled top lashes, layers of Passioneyes Mascara in Nero 1 were applied paying special attention to the outer corners for definition and volumizing finish. The brows were sculpted with The Brow Liner using the wide part of the pencil nib with light, feathery strokes to fill the colour outwards to the end of the brow, achieving a natural definition to the eyes.
A true colour explosion complemented the lips, for joyful and personalized looks: from bold reds, statement burgundy, vivid pinks, to delicate nudes in matte and creamy textures, achieved with Dolce Matte or Classic Cream lipsticks. To give lips definition, the lips were lined with matching shades of The Lipliner. Nails are painted with The Nail Lacquer in signature shades, from sheer nudes to vibrant reds evoking a sensual femininity.
I was lucky enough to get a DGbeauty makeover and try all these gorgeous goodies.
I pretty much wish that I could look like this every day and take Nisreen the MUA home with me.
