Named ‘The Monochrome Diva’, Illamasqua’s Director of Artistry, Pablo Rodriguez, took inspiration from Doris Day’s 1950’s makeup to create this ultra-feminine look. Using a monochromatic palette of lilacs and purple-pink hues, the look is completed with a bold black gel liner and full false lashes.
Skin was prepped with the Matte Veil Primer to create a soft-focus, shine-free finish. The cream-gel formula glides on to the skin and controls excess oil production for a modern, matte complexion.
Pablo then used Skin Base Foundation to even out skin tone. Only a very light layer was used to keep the skin looking natural while also minimising the appearance of pores and any redness.
The Cream Blusher in the shade ‘Laid’ was applied lightly on to the apples of the cheeks.
One product was used to add a gorgeous pop of colour to both the eyes and lips. The Illamasqua Lipstick in the shade ‘Plunge’, a blue-toned pink-lilac was used on the eyes as a shadow and softly blended out. The same shade was then used on the lips and applied with the ultra-fine Illamasqua Lip Brush for ultimate colour pay-off and precision.
The look was completed with a dramatic liner. Taking the Precision Gel Liner, Pablo created a thick, dramatic 1950s inspired flick.
