Benefit Makeup At the 2011 A/W Taka Naka Show

Taka-Naka's Split Personality Autumn/Winter Makeup Look

The last show that I attended for London Fashion Week was the Taka-Naka presentation. Designed by twins (nicknamed Taka and Naka), the collection had two very distinct looks to it: prints inspired by comic books from the late 1950's and a clean, almost conservative Jackie O. feel. Naturally, the makeup look created by Alex Byrne for Benefit Cosmetics incorporated both of these styles which Alex describes as, "Classic Irving Penn glamour. Think Audrey Hepburn and a chic collision with the 50's bright colourful looks."

The focal point of the look was a deep sienna-coloured lipstick in a new shade called Saucy that was intensified with a brick eyeliner called Call Me Nutty. Skin was prepped with You Rebel Tinted Moisturizer and a bit of Hoola was shaded into the deep part of the cheeks for a sculpted, understated look. Georgia Peach or Sugar Bomb powder blushers were dusted onto the apples of the cheeks, and brows were "fat and fun" filled in using Brow-Zings in Medium. Bikini Line Cream Shadow was blended over the top of Tattle Tale Cream Shadow, and Eye Bright was used inside the water line of the eyes. Lastly, a bit of That Gal was masked around the eyes (think about the strip of skin where your glasses go) for brightening purposes, and Bad Gal Mascara in black coated the lashes.
