We were so lucky to have the talent of the Colorescience Team creating Beach Bunny’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim fashion show runway look. There is something so beautiful about fresh-faced look that the team created for us. We had to get the scoop. (click image so see more)
BB: How is runway make up different than doing make up for editorial or every day looks?
C: Runway is about a POP of colore! You need to apply more color in order for it to pop under the hot lights! It is also important to set the make-up properly, using our Setting Mists. The mist provides luminosity and longevity for the makeup. Models tend to sweat under the hot lights and the mist helps keep everything in place.
BB: What was your inspiration when creating Beach Bunny’s runway look?
C: Beach Bunny is a fashion forward bathing suit line and asked for a modern bronzed Smokey eye. We used the eye colore as our POP! In order to complement the trendy Miami setting and their hot suits, we created a “beach friendly face” that made a statement and still looked natural.
BB: How can women incorporate some of the daring makeup looks from the runway into their everyday makeup?
C: We can all wear some version of a Smokey bronzed eye, no matter your age or skin color. One thing to keep in mind for daytime is LESS IS MORE. If eyes are starting to age, it’s important to know that less shimmer or light reflection on the lid the better. Instead, try a creamy matte peach or matte bronze to start a natural day time smokey eye. For nighttime, wet the same color all over the lid to give it more depth and line the entire eye in pencil for a dramatic look.
