AOFMPro @ Paul Costelloe AW16/17 London Fashion Week
The Paul Costelloe show this season was held at the charismatic Oak Room at the Le Meridien Hotel Piccadilly which provided a beautiful setting.
The inspiration behind Paul’s collection this season was very much a powerful woman with a hint to a natural setting.
With this in mind lead make up artist Yin Lee created a suitable look to visualise the thoughts behind the garments.
The Aofm Pro team started of with preparing the skin with Dermalogica skincare which always creates a strong foundation for the rest of the makeup look.
Lashes were curled to achieve an open eyed and aware effect and a light, natural base that let the skin look ‘breathable’ was applied afterwards.
A slight reference to the natural, nomadic look came through in the eyebrows which were brushed up and lightly pencilled in with sharp movements to create a ‘birdlike’ effect.
A golden glow was applied to the upper lid using Catrice golden eyeshadow and blended out, and the inner rim was lined with Catrice black eyepencil.
Giving it a more nomadic feel by smudging charcoal grey and blacks from underneath the eye and finishing of in the outer Corner with a blunt square effect gave the impression of a warrior woman, yet still in the elegant and sophisticated way we like to do for the Paul Costelloe show.
Lips were hinted with a beige splash of colour pressed into the lips with fingers.
To finish of the look we have the girls a ‘splash’ of taupe in a movement downwards from the cheeks, to implement a burst of sand and dust you might get from wondering the deserts.
A fantastic look was achieved that spoke a powerful woman who was also very close to her natural surroundings.
A big thank you to all the hard work from the Aofm Pro team!
