By Karen Kwan While we adore the avant garde and super edgy looks often seen on the runway, it’s refreshing to report on a look you can copy directly and instantly look like the prettiest girl next door. At Line, the models were done up in warm, coppery makeup and
hair was a little bit bedhead, a little bit urban chic.
Makeup “Simple beauty,” is how Eddie Malter describes the makeup for the Line runway show. The key products to replicate the look? Shade 2 from
L’Oréal Wear Infinité Star Secret Eye Shadow Quad in Kerry’s Bronzes 823 all over the lid, followed with shades 3 and 4 blended up to the crease, and along the lower lash line. Then, Eddie took shade 3 and 4 (the two darkest from the quad) from L’Oréal Wear Infinité Star Secret Eye Shadow Quad in Andie’s Neutrals 821 to create the eye contour, using it along the lash line on the top and bottom of the eye. He says these matte shades will help downplay the shimmer of the Kerry’s Bronzes 823. Then with L’Oréal Le Kohl Duo Shadow + Liner in Black/Brown, he lined the eyes, smudging with a brush to soften the line, and skipped mascara. “The designer wanted the eyes to be light,” he explains. Blush was also a slightly tawny shade— L’Oréal True Match Blush in Bare Honey W 1-2—which Eddie also dabbed onto the lips after applying L’Oreal Colour Riche in Amber 868.
