Make Up Your Week: Dries Van Noten's Graphics
To be bold is to be different. Dries Van Noten takes boldness to another level by creating a simple makeup look to help add onto his fashion styles that are known for being outrageous in design. For those who feel like having a daring addition to a simple day look, Noten is an inspiration for you.
Base: Vanish Foundation Stick by Hourglass (Golden Almond), $46: A buttery application that’s easy to buff into the skin is always the best thing to go for when it comes foundation. Hourglass manages to perfect this as well as making it portable and accessible for all. As a full coverage foundation, the Vanish sticks cover imperfections in the skin while giving a satin, matte-like finish. Another benefit to the buttery foundation is that it is waterproof. You can also use this foundation stick to contour and highlight if you’re up to it.
Brows: Brow Wiz by Anastasia Beverly Hills, $21: The model above has her eyebrows in a very fluttery, natural state. In order to obtain the same natural effect, a brow pencil creates this effect better than any other product on the market. The brow pencil helps control how defined you make your brows and the brush on the other side helps you blend it out to create a natural look.
- Liner: Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in the Shade “Snow”, $22: Stila’s Liquid Eyeliner is a must have for anyone who loves a good winged-eye look, but their liner can also create more of a slim look such as the line on Noten’s model. Although getting a perfect straight line like the one on the model would require some time, it’s easy to handle once you’ve got it down.
- Glitter: Glitter by Make Up Forever, $15:
On top of the liner, there is a glitter and the best product for this is Make Up Forever’s glitter pots. This product requires an eyeshadow wand, like the ones you used to get in makeup kits as a kid, to help apply to directly on top of the liner. However, it is a loose glitter, so things might get a little messy!
Eyes: Mascara: Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara by Marc Jacobs, $26: To help open the look, as well as brighten the face, I’ve added a mascara to the guide to add life to the look. The Major Volume mascara helps lift lashes and adds dimension to them as well fluttering them out to look natural. The hourglass shape of the brush gives the lash a full lift, making your eyes pop more without trying.
Although the look was simple, but it will still dazzle. The model looks stunning as she keeps her pout to show of the graphical concept done at the runway show. In efforts, to look as stunning as her is possible and pulling it together will be worth it.
