Last Looks: Strong Neutral

image001Autumn/Winter 2013 conjured up every combination of “neutral” that the mind could imagine. From neutral “glitter lips” at Armani, to what looked more like a tribute to Kim Kardashian’s “neutral” look at Versace, models featured every shade of beige, brown, and nude . . . enhanced with a shot of “smoke” to set the look.

The name of Armani’s collection was simply called “Nude”—and the makeup was designed to be exactly that. Models featured a “no makeup makeup” against a textile palette of beiges, browns, blacks, and a smattering of “cool weather” color.

To get the job done, artists used a combination of Giorgio Armani Maestro Fluid Makeup, and Giorgio Armani “Maestro to Go” Compact Foundation (available autumn 2013).

Emilio Pucci went for a little more definition, with a strong winged liner and pinky-nude eye shadows and lip colors. The skin was kept clean and luminous, with no added color to the cheeks for effect. Artists used a combination of MAC products, including Mineralize Skin Finish and false lashes to complete the look.

The models at Versace channeled their inner Kim Kardashian with a tabloid-worthy fringe of false lashes on top and bottom. Artists added smoky color to the lids and under the waterline, then further enhanced the eyes with strong brows, and a nude eye pencil on the waterline and in the inner corners of the eye. The look was complete with light contour and the slightest hint of a “stain” on an otherwise natural looking lip.
