BACKSTAGE AT NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
METALLIC BLUE MAKEUP
Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury’s stunning metallic eye was the main event. “The makeup ended up feeling a bit Avatar-ish,” she said. “But also like, wild birds of paradise. Beetles. Peacocks.” Working MAC Cosmetics teal and green cream shadows right up to the brow bone, she created an electric blue effect that almost seemed to move with the light. She purposely made it “diagonal, like birds of paradise feathers.” Tilbury then layered on a coppery brown cream shadow, which further enhanced the iridescent effect. Lashes were left bare, and the skin was minimal. A bit of moisturizer, then cream highlighter on the cheekbones, ridge of the nose and on the lips. “Dewy, metallic, supernatural skin,” is what Tilbury was going for.
