Next up on my fashion week reports is the Maybelline look at Ashish. But first, a word about the Ashish style – it’s the epitome of no such thing as too much, Sparkle, sparkle, colour and more colour. Make it bright, ripped, sequin covered and on the fun side of trashy. That’s Ashish.
But what makeup look do you wear to compliment such an out-there collection? Well, the inspiration is described as an Egyptian walk of shame – a sort of ‘Elizabeth Taylor, in Cleopatra – morning after the night before’… One of those looks that doesn’t really work for a trip to Tesco, but there are some little tips and tricks that can be interpreted and well worth sharing.
On the makeup front there are a few key products that were used to create the look – the new Master Duo liquid liner that has a great little nib that can be used thick and thin – depending on what look you want. Them there’s a golden Colour Tattoo that was used to give a shimmer on cheekbones that had a touch of the ‘dropped shadow’ look about it.
The Master Shadow smokey pencil in black and purple (the perfect combo got the gold) to give thy smudged, smoky feeling to the eyes. No mascara necessary for this look! But product wise, the Master Duo liner and the gold shadow can easily be translated into something more wearable. I love the use of the Colour Tattoo as highlighter.
Then, as the perfect combo on the nails for the beauty look – a stylishly ‘chipped’ look. But in a really sparkly awesome way – no base coat, a black coat, applied in a chipped style. Then a lovely pearly coat over the black, to create a base for a smattering of pearly sequins to add a pretty sparkle over the edgy black.
To top it all off – the hair! Not a subtle look – subtle doesn’t really work for Ashish! The striped colours look was created using the new L’Oreal hair chalks. For the show these were applied on extensions for the models to create a sort of disheveled party vibe.
This is one of the things I love about fashion week – the pure ridiculousness of it! Amazing looks, but not exactly translatable!
