Prophetik Makeup Spring 2011

Backstage Beauty: Mermaid Makeup at Prophetik

I had the pleasure of peeking backstage at Prophetik's Spring 2011 Collection before the show began. FabSugarUK told you about Jeff Garner's gorgeous clothes, whilst I was totally focused on the Indian, tribal-inspired look of the plaits in the models hair and the ethereal, glittery makeup created by lead makeup artist Lan Nguyen. Lan said,

The makeup look for this show is warm against soft pinks and whites. Think mermaids and fairy tales, but not too fantasy."

  • Face: First, skin was prepped using Perfekt Skincare Skin Perfection Gel and followed by Eye Perfection Gel which is silicone based and helps fill in lines. Next, MAC Studio Tech Cream Foundation was applied all over and any red marks, blotches or undereye circles were touched up with concealer.
  • Cheeks: Dollymix, a shocking pink blush was applied to the cheeks, and then a touch of Iridescent Loose Powder in Silver Dusk was dusted all over the face. Lastly, Benefit High Beam was dotted on the highest part of the cheekbones for added shimmer.
  • Eyes: First, MAC's Mixing Medium (a product for professionals only) was smoothed onto the eyes as a primer (so essentially, you can use your favourite primer here). Then, to create that super shimmery glow, a little bit of MAC Pigment in Frost and Rose was added to the lids and then patted into the brows. There was no eyeliner applied for this look, however, amazing, false lashes made by Lan hersef using Swarovski crystals were used!
  • Lips: Lastly, a peachy pink lipstick was applied all over the lips and topped with a pale glittery gloss from MAC called Baby Spark.
