|The finished look at Jenni Kayne!|
Makeup artist Lynn Desnoyers for M.A.C. Cosmetics created a beautiful look for Jenni Kayne’s Fall 2011 collection that was focused on a singularly rich magenta lip. The inspiration for the look is a young, urban girl who was in her 20s in the ’90s and is now in her 40s, visiting her family vacation house in the countryside. “We kept a New York feel, with an easiness,” noted Lynn. The collection boasts very noble fabrics, silk, fur, feathers even, so the makeup had to reflect that. “She doesn’t look like she did her makeup herself–she took the time to have it done.”

The base was set with a creamy foundation topped with a bit of mineralized powder. Cheeks are contoured, but kept in mind skin tone. “It’s not overly dramatic, more of a fresh peachy cheek,” explained Lynn. The lip is inspired by the magentas of the clothing. “I coordinated a lip, we didn’t want it to mix and match,” said Lynn. She combined two lip pencils topped with a fluorescent pink M.A.C. Pigment Powder. Brows were defined with a blonde pencil. The eyes were defined with shadows in “pantyhose colors, yet very textured ones.” Keep an eye out for a new M.A.C. shadow called Sweet Satisfaction Eye Shadow, a shimmery beige that looks infinitely wearable. Brown mascara was applied to curled lashes. Flat-ironed, center-parted locks completed the look.
|The final nail look|
Angie Wingle for CND headed up the nail team at Jenni Kayne. Angie combined one coat of Desert Suede, one coat of Copper Shimmer, a coat of Rose Water, followed by one coat of Super Matte Top Coat. In that order. The resulting hue is a beautiful blushing taupe. The look was inspired by one of the cable-knit sweaters of the collection.
What do you think of this look? I LOVE it. I will be rocking that lip this weekend.
