Backstage Beauty: Kevyn Aucoin for Clover Canyon

Clover Canyon was one of our favorite looks of the week. A ‘light reflective’ look was created by Deanna Melluso of Kevyn Aucoin Beauty, inspired by American artist James Turrell’s use of light and space.

The overall makeup look was a great complement to the bright coral accents in Clover Canyon’s clothing. It was so wearable and pretty, we can’t wait to try it.

 Get the look with these Kevyn Aucoin Beauty products:

Face: To achieve a look of overall luminosity, makeup artist Deanna Melluso mixed  ‘The Loose Shimmer’ Eyeshadow with Creamy Glow in ‘Tansoleil’, pressed on to cheekbones and the bridge of the nose to create a sparkling luminescence on the face.

Tip: Melluso says using your fingers melts the product and allows for a natural look.

Eyes: We know sometimes makeup artists get creative backstage using different products in different ways, but this took the cake! Melluso used  The Flesh Tone Lip Pencil as an eyeliner, applying it from the outer lash line to the inner. (Lip liners are a great substitute if you don’t have a colored eyeliner.) Adding this colored liner made the eyes pop in a soft, diffused way.

‘The Sensual Skin Enhancer’ Makeup was applied in the crease of the eye to set the look. Mascara used only on the bottom lashes allowed for a soft, flawless look.

Lips: Melluso applied The Matte Lip Color in ‘Timeless’ with her ring finger and then added The Lip Gloss in ‘Reyna’ to the center of the lips over the lipstick to add the effect of light. When the whole look comes together it gives off an essence of radiant dimensional space.
