One of the things that you have to love as a editor is backstage access to the models prior to the show. Because most of the male models are quite hilarious and always completely darling to hang out with. That and close proximity to all that hotness makes New York Fashion Week go by much, MUCH more quickly.
But hey, I digress. Let’s talk about what they did to make these gorgeous boys walking for the Levi’s Global Collection for Fall 2012 look even better.
Stila Cosmetics was on-hand to make sure that the gents glowing skin and perfect features were just slightly enhanced for a glowing complexion with youthful, smooth lips under the hot light of the runway. Sarah Lucero, Celebrity Makeup Artist and the brand’s number one beauty gal, described the look as “A modern approach to a classic, fresh look. Strong brows structured and enhanced the eyes and allowed the other features to remain neutral yet stand out.”
While the gals got the full makeup rundown, the guys got a modified version with Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer and All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer to give them a luminous complexion, then used Stila Convertible Color in Lillium to give them that youthful flush. Brows were structured with Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color and the lips were just touched with Stila Caramel Prime Pot, a dot of In the Nude Long Wear Lip Color and a light touch of Honeysuckle Lip Glaze (which is out of production it appears – try Honeydew Lip Glaze for a similar effect) just to give it depth under the lights.
The look was rather handsome, no? Feel like faking a flawless face for a big moment? This is definitely the way to do it, lads!
Love this Stila look. What do you think? You like?
