Tyra Banks as Other Super Models

A few days ago, Tyra tweeted some professional pictures of herself portraying Cara Delevinge, Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss.

She described this venture on her Twitter feed as:

“I’ve put my own spin on #NYFW with a  tribute to some of the fiercest #SuperModels ever. Unretouched. Real. Raw.”

Mainly, these looks I believe were achieved with makeup, lots of it – its all the eyebrows – look closer!

As soon as these pictures hit the internet the trolls went on a ‘is this racist/not racist’ tangent, I believe we need to admire her bravery for attempting these. Respect for the fact that these people, fall into the same category as her – SUPER MODELS. I do not believe they were executed excellently but rather they sort of do the trick.  I am also not sure whether it was a good idea but its the thought that counts, right?

To recreate these looks has taken not only talent from a makeup artistry front but rather that from a photographic perspective, the lighting is overall these 3 images not done too badly… apart from the Kate Moss “The Grudge” look a like picture (but let’s be honest the source and inspiration of this picture was from Kate’s heroin chic phase anyway – so bravo Tyra & Co??).

TYRA DOES “HEROIN CHIC”

The press release gives the feeling that these 3 images are part of a 15 image series… I’m very curious to see the others and I will be sure to share these with you.

MODEL TAKEOVER : Who’s Replacing 90s Supers Now?

Hiya Poutlings

Cindy, Kate, Naomi, Linda, Christy… Your days were high and mighty, but now these new skinny-minnies are coming into take your place.

Who are the new super models now?

Cindy Crawford and Karlie Kloss

Beauty makes the spot on their otherwise state clean complexions. Neither Cindy nor Karlie can take a bad shot.  They both give collarbone for days, and a hunch that could make anyone feel straight.

Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn

They’re both giving tribal realness, with cheekbones that say, “I’m  better than you.” We’re waiting for Jourdan’s hissy-fit but for the time being she’s fitting into Naomi’s early super shoes, fiercy.

Kate Moss and Lara Stone

In the 90s, Kate brought it to Calvin Klein, along with heroin chic and a penchent for toplessness. Now Lara brings a bustier approach to CK with that same dainty gauntness about her face.

Linda Evangelista and Daria Webowy

These Canadian chameleons have both taken the cover of Vogue in Marilyn Monroe-esque pin curls. Linda may be poutier, but they’re equally versatile!

A LEGEND KEVYN AUCOIN

Hello Pouters!

Before I start with my personal makeup how to’s.  I’d just like to start off first with a little bit of info on how I came to loving makeup so much.

It all started with a makeup legend! Mr. Kevyn Aucoin! Unfortunately for the fashion, beauty and makeup industry he passed away. But he was definitely the person that made makeup what it is today. He transformed faces like you wont believe.  He was the god-father of makeup!

When I saw his work on one of his books Making Faces I was absolutely blown away! I immediately wanted to just dip my whole face in makeup!!! His work became an obsession. I only dream to have a quarter of his talent!

That was the day I realized what a wonderful thing makeup was! Without the use of cosmetic surgery, one could transform a face from drab and naked to fabulous and painted, thanks to Kevyn.

Kevyn Aucoin, you are my makeup hero!

Kevyn was known for being the contour master. He transformed celebrities and ordinary people into works of art!

Kevyn Aucoin 1962-2002

His books that made me fall in love with the art of makeup. If you have a passion for makeup, try to get these books. You can order them at Exclusive Books, but they will be expensive. It’s definitely worth it though!

Kevyn facts:

  • He was self-taught!
  • Went to New-York and would makeup models for free just to build a portfolio
  • Was discovered by VOGUE‘s photographer Steven Meisel
  • His career took off with a makeup shoot he did with Cindy Crawford which led him to do 9 VOGUE covers in a row
  • He also did 7 COSMOPOLITAN covers in a row
  • At the height of his career, he charged about $6000.00 per makeup session
  • Died from a pituitary tumor and suffered from acromegaly.

There is soooooooo much more he did regarding his career. This list would carry on forever, but I will let the pictures do the talking.

For your information, this is a guy!

This is how he would contour. It’s all about contouring! Just remember to blend very well! It’s the secret! You should have seen her after! Wow! I didn’t post a picture, because I think you should get the book and see the after. 🙂

Therefore I say LESS IS NOT MORE! Look at what more can do!

…..

MuchLuv ♥
