Dennis Basso SPR 09: Q&A with makeup artist Cynde Watson

We are pleased to share our exclusive interview today with makeup artist and founder of Color by Cynde Watson Cosmetics, from the Dennis Basso Spring 2009 show at NYC Fashion Week.

RLB: Inspirations for the makeup look this year?

CW:My inspiration was “A perfect spring vacation”- Effortless Beauty, Sheer &Breezy (Simple, Clean & Pretty).
Radiant skin
Natural lips
Long full eyelashes
Glowing cheeks

RLB: Biggest change from your looks last season?

CW:This season I didn’t use eye shadow to define the models eyes. I used extra coats of mascara and I lined the inner rim of the models top lashline with black eyeliner to make the eyes pop and keep them looking fresh,young and flirty.

RLB: Key products you're using on the models this year?

3LAB Perfect Skincare
WW Eye Cream
Hydra Day SPF 20(use all over face and neck, press extra moisturizer on cheeks).
