Backstage Beauty: Geoffrey Rodriguez for Kevyn Aucoin uses Bold Colors in Unexpected Places

Lead Makeup Artist,  Geoffrey Rodriguez for Kevyn Aucoin Beauty created the look for designer Gregory Parkinson’s S/S 2013 Collection at New York Fashion WeekInspired by Gregory Parkinson’s exuberant love of fabric and color, Makeup Artist, Geoffrey Rodriguez says “his S/S 2013 make-up look is all about the mixture of textures and Boldly Colored Cheeks!  The past few seasons have been focused on deep bright colors on the lips or eyes, so this season, I wanted to bring bold emphasis and color to a new and unexpected place- The Cheeks!  As for the lips, we are referring to them as ‘The Absence of Color’.

Just like make-up, Gregory Parkinson’s designs have intricately detailed color combinations and textures, so the creative synergy between the clothes and make-up are very organic. “Each dress could be its own make-up palette,” says Rodriguez.

Please see below for how to get the look!

THE LOOK:
  • Cheeks: Apply Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Veil Powder in Candelight prior to blush to soften shades and highlight the temples of the cheeks. Then layer Kevyn Aucoin Pure Powder Glow blush in Shadore from the apple of the cheeks to the temples, followed by Pure Powder Glow in Myracle on temples to contour and sculpt cheeks at the base of the hairline. When the Shadore blush blends with Candlelight, the color actually becomes a softer shade.  This use of mixing and layering creates three different shades of pink on the cheek and adds multiple forms of contouring, highlighting and sculpting.
  • Eyes:  As a base, cover the lid with the NEW! Kevyn Aucoin Eye Shadow Single in #103 (a peach matte). For shine, apply a generous amount of Kevyn Aucoin Loose Shimmer Shadow in Citrine (a gold jeweled tone) at theinner corners and underneath eyes so it appears like the shimmer is ‘dripping down’ the eye.  Depending the model’s dress, the eyes are contoured with one of the gem-inspired Loose Shimmer Shadow shades, primarily, Jade (a vibrant green), Lapis (a bluish plum) or Amethyst (a bright purple), to create light and dimension against the matte lid.  To create lift, the bottom and top lashes are coated with Kevyn Aucoin Curling Mascara.  Two coats are applied using a zigzag motion from the base of the lash-line to the tips for fullness and definition.  A third layer of mascara is used tocoat tips of lashes.
  • Brows: Utilizing Kevyn Aucoin Eyebrow Gel, set to launch in 2013, brows are brushed upward with a little bit of gel, creating a wind-blown look that is free and easy, complementing the hair created for the show.  The Loose Shimmer Shadow in Citrine lines brows for additional highlights and dimension.
  • Lips: Because lip color has been so prominent the last few seasons, we are calling it “The Absence of Color”.  Using Kevyn Aucoin Elegant Lip Gloss in Cloudaine (baby pink) to hydrate and a smidge of Kevyn Aucoin Lip Gloss in Dahliana (nude cream) on top for a baby soft, pouty look.  Again, more layering of sheer textures on top of each other is beautiful for a natural look with a nod towards something modern.

Summer Sunset

If I had to pick a season, there is no doubt in my mind it would have to be Summer. I just love everything about it. From the warm weather to the flowers that are in full bloom, the scents and colors are intensified. When I found out that Lise Watier put out a new line called “Summer Sunset”, I had to test it out.

Honestly I test so many products and usually have a few favorites, but this time I loved the whole line. The Eau De Toilette spray is a “Summer Must Have”. Not only is the bottle design beautiful with bright orange and hot pink stripes, the scent fills the air with its full bouquet. Lise Watier brilliantly combines jasmine, lily of the valley, honeysuckle, apple, grapefruit blossoms, bergamot and luxurious red fruit to create a sensual and feminine scent. This fragrance is perfect no matter what you’re doing; lunch on a patio, walks on the beach, running errands or shopping with your friends.

With my love for pink, it was hard not to freak out with this new collection by Lise Watier. The nail lacquer in “Dragon Fruit” is the perfect pink. It has a light on the cap which make it easy to apply, especially getting into the corners of your nails. I can’t wait to sport this color with my sandal collection. Next on the list is the Crystal Drops Ultra-Shine lip gloss in “Smoothie“. This gloss gives your pout a hint of shimmer with a pale pink sheen. A great neutral lip when your rocking out the smoky eye.

On days when I want to add just a hint of color to brighten my eyes, Lise Watier Crayon Jumbo in “Peche Melba” does the job. I love how easy it is to apply and convenient when you need to touch up on the go . For those wanting to jazz it up, their Palette Summer Sunset in “Tropical” will satisfy all your needs. They have combined creams with a rustic brown and burgundy, oh and we can’t forget the lime green.

Last but not least, face and body bronzers that will give you that sun-kissed glow this Summer. First, Lise Watier Sun Smart~Tinted Universal UV Shield with SPF 30. This oil-free cream will give you coverage, protection and instant color. I still like to apply an additional SPF 50 before. Next, the Summer Sunset “Bronzing  Powder” palette gives you an array of colors to choose from, peach, pink, brown and cream. You can mix them all together or select individual colors to customize your look. Either way you’ll look beach ready and radiant. To finish off this line, I could not leave out the body! The Havana All Over Baked Bronzer is amazing for using everywhere, especially defining your legs and collarbone.
