RECREATE THE LOOK/ BY MALENE BIRGER’S SS19 SHOW
Hi there, here’s a guide to recreate the strong but feminine look from by Malene Birger’s ss19 show (during Copenhagen fashion week last week), where I had the pleasure of being key makeup artist. Me and head of creative (chef designer) Mathilde Torp Mader came up with the look together. We wanted to make a strong makeup suited for a tribe of fun loving, strong power women.
You can go for the sophisticated (with a twist) version, or add sparkle like we did if your in a party mood!
Skin was kept matte and perfect with Mac Match Master Foundation, Mac prep+ prime translucent loose powder and the new Fix Plus Matte (a new favorite product of mine). Brows were enhanced with Shape and Tint Brow pen and brow gel. Shape and Tint Brow pen is really good, you can kind of draw fine ‘hairs’ on the skin where a little extra is needed.
I defined the eyes with Paint pots ‘Groundwork’ and ‘Quite natural’ on dark skin girls and applied it as a soft smoky eye.
The lips were super, super matte, with a blurred lip line, as if the girls had been wearing the lip color all day.. For this we used Mac Retro Matte in ‘Quite the standout’ applied with an eye shadow blending brush.
Some of the girls got beautiful silver glitter on cheekbones and eyes too from The Gipsy Shrine, it looked sooo good on the runway!
