Backstage Pass: The Makeup & Nails at Jason Wu
First Lady favorite Jason Wu showed his Spring 2012 Collection on Friday and we showed you the pictures of the clothing the models wore and now we have the details on what the models wore on their faces and nails as they walked the runway.
Makeup artist Diane Kendal worked with MAC to create the look for the show. Her inspiration was “fifties and nineties pop… inspired by the graffiti artist KAWS.” Here is a complete breakdown of the products used, all MAC:
On The Face:
Studio Finish Concealer- perfect skin only where needed
Blot Powder/Pressed- applied over the center of the face for a polished look
Silver Dusk Iridescent Powder- dusted above the cheekbones, over bridge of nose, and inner corners of the lower lash line for a highlight
Cubic Powder Blush – blended over the lower apples of cheeks with 129 Brush
On The Eyes:
Blacktrack Fluidline – applied with 201 Brush with precision through the upper lashline only with a minute extension on the corners of the eyes
MAC Pro Gloss Texture- dabbled over eyelids for a soft sheen
On The Lips:
Redd Lip Pencil- contours and defines lips
Scarlet Ibis Lipstick (available Spring/Summer 2012)- applied over the entire lip
MAC Pro Acid Orange Pigment- patted over the lips with 219 Brush to finish
Now, onto the nails: I had the pleasure of interviewing OPI Co-founder Suzi Weiss- Fischmann about her collaboration with Jason Wu, she was mum on the details and we were finally able to get the scoop Friday.
Models at Jason Wu wore MonSooner or Later (OPI Classics), a bright orangey-red on their hands. The boldly colored nails, acted as an eye-catching accessory that complemented the beautiful clothes. On toes, models wore Samoan Sand (OPI Classics), a soft pink-hued nude.
