Backstage Beauty: Libertine Fall 2011

The final look/Image:S. Whittle for Style Wylde


The Exquisitely vibrant hand-painted pieces with a heavy dose of punk-meets prep attitude in the Fall 2011 Libertine collection, required a bold but not too over the top beauty look to keep everything in balance. To achieve this, Libertine designer Johnson Hartig called  the professionals: Make Up For Ever Alliance Key Artist Lottie and her team.

Clean, glowing skin and a bold cat eye, with pretty pink lips for a retro-ladylike meets punk rock vibe that gels perfectly with the Libertine point of view.




The process:

Perfect dewy skin was created with sheer foundation, that allowed the natural glow to come through under sculpted cheeks in a natural flush shade.  Dark dramatic eyes, were emphasized with an elongated cat shape created by super matte and black shadow. 




The products:

Skin: Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation

Cheeks: Make Up For Ever Sculpting kit 

Eyes: Make Up Forever Aqua Black shadow to the upper and lower lashlines to create the 'cat'shape. Make Up For Ever Shadow #4 blended out on the lid, followed by a few coats of Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash for ultimate drama.


Real world readiness: Super dark and dramatic eyes look great at night, but even for day this look is doable. Lottie suggested a thinner cat eye drawn with eyeliner, or even going with just the matte shadow, paired with clean and pretty skin and a neutral lip for a toned down look.


Make Up For Ever products are available at Sephora stores online and nationwide. For more images from the Libertine Fall 2011 collection, check out the Style Wylde Galleries
