Want to look like the models off the runways for Fall 2008? Three easy elements go into achieving the perfect look. The best part is that these are the same products used by pros to get models runway ready. I let you know what the products are, what they do, and let you know why you need them. So read on to see how beauty experts and makeup artists alike are achieving runway glamour on models for this Falls’ fashion shows.
Base. Start with a simple base, or rather Urban Decay’s Eye Shadow Primer Potion. This product is an ultra-sheer base that glides on the lid and instantly disappears and helps keep eye makeup from creasing. It works by acting as a glue for eye shadow, eyeliner, and eye makeup. To be truly runway ready, you need your makeup to be long-wearing. This potion will single-handedly save your eye makeup from running, even with all of those flashing lights!
Brow. To have the perfect runway eye, you must have the perfect brow. I love Anastasia Beverly Hills Go Brow. It is a dual-ended brow pencil and highlighter all in one. No matter what color your brow is, the universal color shapes and defines brows while the highlighter gives the eye a pop and a lift. This is a must for a definitive brow, a necessary component of runway eyes.
Shadow. Now that we have prepped the eye, it is time to add some serious color. Stila Red Carpet Look Shadow Palette with Mini Kajal Liner is a great three piece eye kit inspired by the Marchesa Fall runway! The matte and shimmer shadows give eyes a dreamy, feminine look, while the onyx eyeliner adds soft definition. Having this all in one will allow you to complete your runway look in a flash without fumbling with multiple eye shadow compacts and liners.
So there you have it, the three elements to the runway ready eye for Fall 2008. As with any makeup, practice makes perfect, so be patient with yourself as you become familiar with these products and their application techniques. I no time flat you will be a pro and love these products as much as I and the beauty insiders do.
