Dolce & Gabbana showed us a neutral color palette with a few looks in forest green, red, soft hues and metallics on the Milan Fashion Week ready-to-wear runway for the spring/summer 2014 season. This soft color palette offered bold prints, mixed prints, petite handbags, sky high platform shoes (as well as dainty flats), and even bolder jewelry. In order to blend with this bold, 1960’s and Sicilian influenced collection, make-up designer Pat McGrath created a beauty look for the runway with warm golden tones and rich red accents.
To achieve a flawless base, Pat applied Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation using a foundation brush. She started with a small amount of foundation, applied it to the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin; and then blended it from the central point of the face outward until the product flowed seamlessly to the hairline and jaw. Perfect Luminous Concealer was then used to add extra coverage and achieve an illuminated look; especially under the eyes. Finally, Pat created a veil of perfection with a dusting of the pressed powder on the nose and chin. To complete the face, Pat blended the blush in Rosebud, Apricot and Peach, adding a light smudge of the eyeshadow duo in Fortune to the cheekbones and temples for a subtly sculpted finish.
Turning her attention to the eyes, Pat applied the lighter shades from the eyeshadow quad in Golds and Desert to create a deep, gilded look. Pat then applied the eyeliner in Chocolate and Nude to the upper and lower eye, adding a bronze flecked liquid liner on top of the lash line, for further definition. Finally, layers of Passioneyes Duo Mascara in Terra were applied for volumised and curled lashes, giving models a luxurious yet playful gaze. Pat then applied the brow liner in Soft Brown for a natural, tailored brow.
On the lips, Pat used Classic Cream Lipstick in two dynamic new shades; set to arrive at Dolce&Gabbana Make Up counters from Spring 2014! The new colours, Bellissima and Traviata, were mixed to add warm decadence to the look. The color was applied with greater intensity at the cupid’s bow for better definition and striking finish.
To complement the look Pat chose the nail lacquer in Pure Nude for a final touch of luxury.
