In his latest collection, Tadashi Shoji proves that power is synonymous with glamour and sexiness. His Fall 2018 runway embodied a fiercely feminine energy—each look that strutted down the catwalk, dramatic and deeply unapologetic.
To complement the strength of Tadashi’s collection, makeup artist Pep Gay was tasked with creating a beauty look that would continue the luxurious narrative of tulle gowns and sequined suits. Gay answered the call with a mesmerizing wash of gold on the eyes using MAC Cosmetics, harkening the elegance of the red carpet, where we can easily imagine Tadashi’s designs gracing the silhouettes of Hollywood A-listers. Just-bitten berry lips finished the look, creating truly beautiful makeup that does not compete with the fashions, but makes them shine. Ahead, we break down the look, so you can recreate it step by step.
