Get The Hottest Spring Catwalk Look

The Melbourne Spring Fashion Week has officially kicked off.

Inspired by the bold lipped beauties often featured in Tamara de Lempicka’s paintings, one of the most unique looks consisted of powerful polished makeup, with iridescent skin, lightly illuminated eyes and rich deep burgundy lips.

We don’t know about you, but we think this is definitely something worthy of trying before your next big night out this spring.

Here then is our step-by-step guide on how to recreate our favourite makeup look from the MSFW opening gala night.

1. Complexion

With your hands, apply NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser to prepped and primed skin, building up coverage in the t-zone as you go. Spot conceal any areas of redness and apply a brightening under-eye concealer. Set only the t-zone with NARS Soft Velvet Loose Powder, pressed in with a powder puff to create a velvety finish without taking away the luminosity from the highest points of the face.

2. Lip

Work in a light layer of NARS Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte with a lip brush to create shape and a stained effect. Next, sketch Bobbi Brown Lip Pencil in Sangria all over the lip, slightly overdrawing the top lip line. Make sure the cupid’s bow is sharp and the outer slope of the top lip slightly rounded.

Apply a mix of NARS Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte and the more aubergine-toned NARS Audacious Lipstick in Liv with a lip brush over the top of the lip liner before cleaning up and highlighting the outer edge of the lips with YSL Touché Éclat – Radiant Touch in No. 2.

3. Contour

Sweep NARS Contour Blush in Paloma under the cheekbones and onto the temples in circular motions for softness before using a large domed eyeshadow brush to take it through the contour of the eye and underneath the lash line. Blend everything, including the eye, with Hourglass Ambient Powder in Dim Light.

 4. Eyes

Using your finger, apply RMS Eye Polish in Lunar to the centre of the eyelid. Leave lashes and brows bare for an ultra-modern finish, brushing brows upwards before setting with Surratt Brow Pomade.

5. Blush and Highlight

Take the NARS Yachiyo Brush to buff NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Jubilation across the apples of the cheeks and into the temples. Follow with a mix of NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Europa and NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Craving right under the eye, on the high point of the cheek and above the below the brow bone. This will catch the light and give the eye area an ethereal effect.
