New York Fashion Week SS 2019
DesignerSelf Portrait
Makeup Artist; Thomas de Kluyver
Brand: Maybelline New York

Self Portrait's ultra feminine deigns and beautiful use of elaborate fabrics always makes for a memorable presentation. His spring 2019 ready-to-wear show was no exception as it further defined the designer's brilliant vision of the youthful, feminine spirit. 

Stemming from this fresh philosophy, makeup artist Thomas de Kluyver wanted to create a look that complimented the collection while using shades and products in an unexpected fashion. 'I wanted to capture that moment when you're experimenting with makeup in the safety of your bedroom or bathroom," said Thomas. 

Thomas wanted the skin to look youthful and radiant. To achieve that ideal complexion he applied Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation on the skin and used Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer for an extra boost to the skin. The final result looked healthy and fresh.

There was no doubt that the exciting element to the beauty looks at Self Portrait were the unique graphic designs around the eyes. Thomas used Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil Eyeliner in Cashmere White to create five unique designs framing the eyes. Strategic lines were placed along the brow bone, tear duct and upper lash line in an almost experimental fashion which highlighted the shape of the eyes. For a more dramatic take on this vision, Thomas created a starburst-like arrangement along the outer eye area as one of the looks.
Backstage Beauty Tip: Thomas explained that the tip of the liner is key to creating this look. He advised a sharpened point helps create clean fine lines where as a blunt tip is best for creating thicker lines and angles.

Once the desired designs were achieved, he followed with mascara. Unlike the traditional application, Thomas concentrated Volum' Express The Falsies Washable Mascara to only the roots of the lashes which created subdued definition.

Girls walked the runway in two looks - bare and bold. Models sporting the graphic white eyeliner designs were sent off with lips coated in Baby Lips in Quenched which created a subtle shine. However, those with bare lids were given a more statement-making pout which was achieved by framing only the upper lip with SuperStay Matte Ink in Romantic. This precision product made application a breeze as its applicator features a tapered, arrow-like design.
