“I wanted to create a look that was bold, but still looked soft and natural. I was inspired by the iconic supermodels of the ’90s and the great structure of their brows. I kept the makeup very pure, adding just a touch of natural flush to the lips by mixing two lip products together, and I used a brow pencil to create subtle freckles and a dramatic brow to top the whole look off.”—Gucci Westman, global artistic director for Revlon.
The fresh face has made an appearance yet again at Rag & Bone for the Spring/Summer season. For this effortlessly chic look, Gucci Westman created a fresh, feminine face enhancing natural skin tons by illuminating the cheeks for a look that was all about the glow and shine.
The skin was a dewy look, which called for lots of moisture. To achieve this look, it’s best to moisturize your skin before application of your foundation. If your moisturizer contains light reflecting elements or luminous properties, even better! Then apply your foundation using a large buffing brush (Brush Blender by Glo Minerals is great for this) Take your concealer (1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone) apply it to the centre of the face and under the eyes. Blend with the same buffing brush in a circular motion. Then, take a nude-pink blush; apply to the apples of your cheeks, brushing outwards to the hairline.
Use a chocolate brown liner and brush towards the top of your lash line, smudging it with your finger to blend. Then, apply two coats of the mascara of your choice (we recommend Lashes to Die for by Peter Thomas Roth) Lastly, the brows were “groomed and brushed up, so they felt expensive”
For the lips, a rosy nude, with a slight hint of brown is best. Line the lips, and then fill in with lipstick. Add a bit of gloss to the center of your bottom lip for a bit of shine.
“This look is effortless, aspirational and chic, while still feeling luxurious and cool” says Westman.
