Contouring, you’ve met your match. “Draping,” the newest face-flattering trend to hit New York Vogue Week, melds eye shadow and blush to create an otherworldly glow — and a stunning counterpoint to the sharply delineated cheekbones which have dominated runways and crimson carpets for a number of seasons.
At Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie present, faces shimmered with pinks, inexperienced and purples topped with highlighter for a glance impressed by stained glass. And for boho-glam designer Anna Sui, artist Pat McGrath conceived a “fantasy” look with gradients of not-so-mellow yellows and magenta.
Taking the draping trend from runway to actuality is surprisingly straightforward should you copy the “vibrant, sunset-y punch” created by make-up artist Rommy Najor for MAC at the Priscavera present.
After tracing fashions’ eyes with coffee-brown liner, Najor used a medium-size brush to buff the space round the corners of the eyes and the prime of the cheekbones with lipsticks — sure, lipsticks — from MAC’s upcoming Powder Kiss line (out in October). Shades of crimson and beige assorted relying on fashions’ pores and skin tones.
“I selected these lipsticks as a result of they’re superlightweight, with a velvety, powdery really feel that’s nonetheless creamy and movable,” Najor tells The Submit. (In a pinch, blush would work as effectively, he notes.) Then, he topped lids with two terra-cotta shadows: “Uninterrupted” and “Texture,” $17 every. Such earthy colours are universally flattering, he says, and make eyes stand out “as a result of there’s this spot of colour there.” He completed by dabbing mascara simply into the roots of the lashes slightly than coating them, “so as to add depth and dimension.”
Mainly, the much less you strive, the higher it appears. “It’s not so polished and exact; it’s lived-in,” says Najor. “It doesn’t should be so good.”
