Catwalk Copycat Versace metallics
I recently added a poll to my blog to see what my viewers want more of and the outcome was dominated by the request for more Catwalk/Runway make-up.
I adore doing these looks as they're more challenging and get my creative juices going, my previous looks have been Dior, Sonia Rykiel, and Bottega Venetta.
The Runway looks are everything I love about make-up as it's not necessarily conventional beauty ,the materials aren't necessarily make-up and the make-up artists aren't always trained que my idol Pat McGrath. She infuses pretty make-up with exaggerated lines, colours and textures. Another absolute fav is Alex Box, this woman has an insanely quirky vision when it comes to make-up. Herself and Pat seem to dive out of the box and create artwork but still have the ability to draw that passion back and design "pretty" or "safe" make-up. I admire them incredibly for that and I hope that one day I could follow in their footsteps.
Today's look is inspired by the metallics seen on Versace A/W 2008 runway. Metallics are easy to wear easy to apply and suit any skin tone and eye colour.
These are typically seen on Autumn Winter shows but I think using the right shades this looks beautiful in summer, imagine gliding along the beach in a maxi dress and metallic gold on the eyes and a golden gloss on the lips heavenly!.
Here's a couple more versions of this trend the one on the far right is the closest to mine.
