LG Fashion Week Spring 2011; Backstage beauty report: Romona Keveza
Return to the classics
By Karen Kwan Audrey Hepburn’s chic chignon and fresh makeup combination in
Breakfast at Tiffany’s looked just as gorgeous tonight in the Romona Keveza show as it did back in the early 60s.
Get the look:
Makeup Get a dewy appearance with your
base and foundation (find out Eddie Malter’s method
here) and then emphasize the brows by filling them in with Wear Infinité Eye Shadow in 821. On your eyes, blend all three shades except for shade #1 of Wear Infinité Eye Shadow in 821 from the lash line to the crease, and contour with Wear Infinité Eye Shadow on 836. Complete by sweeping Wear Infinité Eye Shadow in 830 in the crease. Then using L’Oréal HIP High Intensity Pigments Color Truth Cream Eyeliner, brush on eyeliner that ends in a point, but that doesn’t extend much past the outer corner. To pull this off at home, Eddie recommends starting your eyeliner from the outside and working inwards to ensure you don’t overextend the line. Then to complete the eyes, brush on Voluminous Million Lashes onto the upper lashes, on both the underside and topside of the lashes. N.B. Keep the lower lash line completely naked–no liner, no eyeshadow, no mascara. Brighten up cheeks with True Match in N34, a peachy pink, and paint your lips with a delicate touch using Colour Riche Lipstick in 868 for a soft effect.
Get the hair look after the jump!
Hair This French twist is pretty laborious, admits Eric Del Monaco. "It’d be a great look for New Year’s Eve or with an evening gown," he says.
But is this exact hairstyle something one could achieve at home on our own, I asked? You could do a more relaxed version of it, he says. "The best length for this style is a few inches past the shoulders, slightly layered–if you’re hair is much longer it becomes too long to tease it all and you have to figure out where to put it," he says. For a more casual version of this look, Eric suggests a lot of backcombing and teasing, using Elnet hairspray as you tease, then brushing it all back, gathering it all at the nape of the neck and twisting and tucking in the chignon as you secure it into place with bobby pins. And you’re done–Holly Golightly circa 2011.
