New York Fashion Week SS 2019
Designer: Kith
Makeup Artist; Grace Lee
Brand: Maybelline New York

While subtle beauty look often leave the ensembles as the focal point during a show, I love when models strut down the runway sporting bold beauty looks. This cool, dramatic graphic smoky eye look paired beautifully with the unique and darkly hued designs of the Kith x Versace collection  (one of four collaborations presented).

The collection, which featured an array of personalities, featured multiple beauty look created by Grace Lee, makeup artist for Maybelline New York. This specific look was all about fresh skin, feathery brows and ultimately focused on the ultra cool winged eye look. Using versatile Maybelline products, here's how she created this look:

To avoid any fallout or smudges on freshly applied foundation, Grace began the look by creating the negative space winged eye makeup. Using the Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil Eyeliner in Sleek Onyx, she lined the upper lash line and blended the product out into the winged shape.
Backstage Beauty Tip: To achieve that sharp, clean edge, Grace suggests holding a tissue along the outer corner of the eye whilst lining. If that appears to be a bit too challenging, a perfect shape can also be created using the Facestudio Master Fixer Makeup Remover Pen.

Once complete, Grace framed the look by coating both the upper and lower lashes in few coats of Volum' Express The Falsies Washable Mascara in Blackest Black.

Moving on to the skin, Grace wanted the skin to look fresh and flawless without looking heavily concealed. To create that perfect complexion, she simply buffed the skin with Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. Once applied, Grace wanted to sculpt the face much like the stunning 90s supermodels seen in George Michael's "Freedom! 90" music video and the Versace runway. To create  that iconic, subtle contour, she blended Facestudio Masterstudio Master Contour V-Shape Duo Stick under the cheekbones.

To create the lush, feathery brow look. Brow Precise Micro Eyebrow Pencil was used to fill in the lashes and the final shape was set with Great Lash Clear Mascara.

For the perfect nude lip, Grace blended two shades (Driver and Poet) of SuperStay Matte Ink Un-Nude Liquid Lipstick onto the lips. For a muti-dimensional finish, Shine Compulsion Lipstick by Color Sensational in Baddest Beige was applied atop the nude lipstick blend.
