The 1980s made another comeback at this year's fashion weeks, where make-up artists were instructed to keep eye make-up slightly messy, even lived in, as if the models had done it themselves. At London’s Falguni & Shane Peacock show, Academy of Freelance Make Up Pro Team artist Rachel Wood used that not-too-perfect, '80s Vogue-style colored eye shadow to complement the embellished '80s-style clothing.
Korres was the show's cosmetics sponsor: AOFM Pro Team members applied the company's Long-Lasting Eyeliner Pencils in Blue, Blue Petrol and Blue Black on the models' lids, topped with Shimmering Eye Shadow in Sky Blue. The team also used a Soft Eyeliner Pencil in Black under the eye, smudging it to the outer corners. A Shimmering Eye Shadow in Golden Brown was applied to the inner eye and a dab of M.A.C. pigment in Golden Lemon gave a finishing shine to the inner corners, creating a peacock effect. Korres Lash-Strengthening Mascara in Blue-Black was left thick and slightly clumpy on the lashes.
Skin was kept simple and clean, with just a dab of the Korres blush in Natural and Cherry Oil Lip Gloss in Nude to complement the eyes without overwhelming them.
London-based make-up artist Angela Holthuis and photographer Izabela Habur set a challenge for themselves: Habur
asked Holthuis, a fashion pro, to create “a small story with bold looks
within a small time frame, to test out how far we [could] push
ourselves creatively,” Holthuis said.
