backstage at antonio berardi with revlon
The makeup for the Antonio Berardi show was done by the amazingly talented Gucci Westman. She created a luminous base using a mix of the Revlon Nearly Nude foundation and powder, She then used the new Revlon Skinlights in Pink and the Baby Stick in Pink Passion to create a flawless porcelain base. The main focus for th look was the really bright lip which was a custom blend two lipsticks. A mix of Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Really Red and Super Lustrous in Kiss me Coral, she added a spot of sparkly eyeshadow with a topping of Shine City Lip Gloss in the centre of the lip only. She talked about how glosses can look gloomy and just run off models lips so using a shadow and a dab of gloss in the middle made the look easier to wear. The look was intended to be very flawless and polished without looking over down. The striking lips added a touch of drama to what was a very simple and unintentional look.
For the nails Jenny Longworth blended a custom shade for the show which was a mix of Revlon Red polish and a new Revlon Brilliant Strength over the top. She laid down two coats of the Revlon Red (it's been around for 50 years!) as and then painted over with the Brilliant Strenght (I cant remember the colour!) finished with a super glossy topcoat the nails were classic and the perfect match for the makeup.
I loved the makeup and nails at the Berardi show. They really reflected a simple and beautiful aesthetic without being over done. The flawless base's were to die for with the Skin Lights brightening up the face and giving a gorgeous soft glow. I cant wait to get my hands on that product!
