An eye that looked like a jewel was the focal point of the desert-goddess look backstage at Alice + Olivia today. Created by stila Cosmetics and inspired by the clothing collection’s warm tangerine tones, the color and texture of gold took center stage, giving the models a cool, desert-girl vibe.
To re-create this smashing eye look, stila Magnificent Metals in Comex Gold was mixed with a drop of primer (it comes with the shadow!) and applied to the lids, then Metallic Gilded Gold was packed on top of it with the artists’ ring fingers (used dry, without the primer), for a chunky, glittery and utterly jaw-dropping effect.
Skin was healthy and illuminated (the stila signature look!). A new, not-yet-released serum foundation was used only where needed, with Kitten All Over Shimmer applied on all the high points of the face (spots where the sun would naturally hit it)—for a gleaming, perfected, but not overdone complexion. Cheeks and lips were simply warmed up for a natural-looking flush—using Camellia Convertible Color on the cheeks and Stay All Day Lipstick in Dolce on the lips.
And now, we officially have a gold crush on spring makeup!
