The atmosphere backstage at Mara Hoffman’s Fall ’11 show was like a beehive. A few dozen models, hair stylists and makeup artists packed into the smallest backstage area in the tents, diligently working to prepare for the show.
To compliment the summery vibe of the collection, Makeup For Ever Alliance’s key makeup artist Lottie created an intense, Middle Eastern inspired look:
“Sun kissed skin” and “deep smoky eyes” were the focal points:
To get the look, Lottie used Aqua Black to upper and lower lash lines. Smoky Lash was used on eyelashes to “add drama”. Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector was applied to brows (using a disposable mascara wand) for added emphasis. Camouflage Concealer Palette #4 was used to maintain a neutral lip.
Turbans added a final touch to the desert inspired look:
The models’ fingers were painted black to mimic ink stains on their hands:
