For the Fall 2011 Michael Kors Collection, which celebrated the 30th anniversary of the designer, Shiseido makeup artist Dick Page used the legacy of Kors' 30 years in fashion as inspiration for this pretty, soft look with a well defined brow.
Page created a “clean and natural” look that went perfectly with the collection.
Read below for his products used and techniques to recreate the look! - RLB
Face: Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation was used to cover any redness and blemishes as needed to even out the models’ complexions. Dick then applied Shiseido Translucent Loose Powder from the mid-cheek to lower jawline only. To have the eye area remain luminous, Dick applied a range of the Shiseido Bronzer from the hollow of the cheek area and diffused toward the jawline (the bronzer shade was dependent on the model’s skin tone). No concealer was used under the eyes, especially directly under lower lash line.
Eyes: Dick applied Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Sable (BR709) along the upper and lower lash line and blended well to diffuse the color. A trace of Shiseido Accentuating Cream Eyeliner in Brown (#2) was applied by Dick along the upper lash line to give the eye a bit of weight. The liner was blended well into the Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Sable (BR709). Using a fluff brush, Dick blended color into the eye area to create a halo of color around the eye. A Shiseido Eyelash Curler was used to slightly curl eyelashes. Dick applied Shiseido Perfect Mascara Defining Volume in Black (BK901) to upper lashes only. Since there was an emphasis on a strong eyebrow, Dick used Shiseido Natural Eyebrow Pencil to fill in models’ brows, following their natural shape to give weight to the brow.
For models with lighter hair, Dick filled in the brows with the darkest shade in the Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Voyage (BR209). For models with medium hair color, Dick applied the darkest shade from Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color in Strata (BR307) to eyebrows to add definition to the brows. The black shade from Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color in Fire (OR302) was used to fill in brows for models with dark hair.
Lips: Dick applied a light wash of Shiseido Perfect Rouge in Dune (BE310) to the lip. He then blotted lips with a base sponge containing a bit of Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation to mute the color.
