How to: Christopher Kane’s dark and dainty beauty look

Thick dark brows, smudged eyeliner, nude lips and pale face was the beauty look at Christopher Kane’s spring 2013 show. According to the designer himself, the spring collection was inspired by Frankenstein so it’s not surprising that the make up looked a little like a a feminine version of the Gothic literary monster. The beauty look is very simple yet there is an inherent strangeness and mystery to it.

Lucia Pieroni, make up artist for Kane’s show, transformed the collection into an elegant spring 2013 makeup look that really stands out and makes a statement. This is the kind of make up the you can wear everyday, either to work or to just run errands or go shopping. You can also transform it from a day to night look by simply adding a little bit more blush on your cheeks and some gloss on your lips. If you want to find out how you can do this on your own, follow the tutorial after the break.

To make your skin glow, prep you face with NARSskin Optimal Brightening Concentrate and Pre Prime Skin Prep. Apply concealer like the Radiant Creamy concealer to hide the flaws that you may have.
Apply Nars’ sheer glow foundation in orgasm and illuminators in copacabana, for a lustrous and flawless finish on your skin.
Strong eyes and brows are the keys to this look so groom your eyebrows with NARS pandora duo eye shadow. The thickness of the brows will depend on how fierce you want to look. Do not go overboard though!
Apply a generous amount of Black Moon eye pencil and Via Veneto Larger than life Long Wear eyeliner along the upper and lower lash lines. This thicker the application, the brighter your eyes will look.
To finish off the look, sweep the lids of your eyes with a nude eye shadow like Iceland’s Duo Eyeshadow. The look is quite androgynous and beautiful!
