Taking inspiration from Princess Leia of the Star Wars franchise designer Minky Cheng wanted the AW16/17 make up look to be symbolic of an ordinary girl taken on an other worldy journey into space, with this in mind the AOFMPro graduate team headed up by key artist Ann Marie Lawson set to work on creating a juxtapostion of beautifully delicate skin teamed with a surprising glittered lower lash line.
After prepping the models with Dermalogica skin care the team set to correcting any minor blemishes or uneven skintone using Catrice Cosmetics correcting cream concealer, once completed they used a clear mascara to define the lashes and brows followed by using a silver glitter mascara to the lower lash line.
Designing for the assured contemporary women, Minki Cheng believes in creating a dialogue with his audience. This is demonstrated through his work by evoking nostalgic feelings, memories and images that resonate with the Minki Cheng woman. A strong focus in developing experimental fabrics through unconventional materials is used thus allowing the progressive element within his designs.
