Runway Report

Liberty and Somer Watson, the gorgeous and talented design duo behind Australian Fashion Label Watson X Watson – invited guests for a cocktail style breakfast at Sydney hot spot – RUSHCUTTERS last week before unveiling their Resort 2014 Collection. Sydney’s “IT” crowd including Fashion Magazine editors, celebrities and media personalities gathered to preview the Brazilian Jungle inspired collection that featured beautiful dark orchid and feminine python prints along with laser cut detailing and mesh panelling.

Curtis Collection was honoured to be named as the official makeup partner for this exclusive event – creating the glowing looks that were showcased on the runway. Our makeup director Max May was onsite with our A-Team of artists which included Mia Hawkswell, Lily Boz and our very own Natalie Papadopoulos from The Parlour Room Clovelly.

Using his Curtis Collection favourites, Max created this stunning, fresh makeup look that perfectly encapsulates Brazilian summer. Dewy, sun kissed skin, seductive bronzed cat eyes, luminous coral cheeks and pink frosted lips.

THE LOOK: Balmy Summer Nights

Find out how to get this flawless look trending right now.

PREP: Ramp up the glow by prepping skin with our Retexture Cream Face Primer - super hydrating with a luminous finish – a perfect base for this summer ready look.

BASE: For an effortless sheer coverage, Mineral Sheer Tint was applied all over the face with a pump of our luxe Radiant Glow Illuminator for vibrance and added highlight.

HIGHLIGHT: The secret to achieving this fresh look is all in the highlighting. Our Light Reflecting Mineral Concealer will not only cover and conceal – it will literally bounce light off the high spots of your face creating a contoured and highlighted finish. Apply under the eyes and along the cheekbones ensuring that you are catching the light in all the right places. Using our Mineral Illuminating Hightlight Pen, draw a line from the corner of your nose up to the outside corner of your eye, along the cheekbone – repeat on both sides. Blend along the cheekbones and up under the eye area for an instantly fresh, youthful look that will allow that summer glow to radiate.

EYES: Using Signature Mineral Quad in London Collection, eyes were subtly contoured along the bottom and top lash line including the inner rim and finished with Mineral Shimmer Dust in Bronzed Beauty to create that shimmering bronzed finish. The lids were glowing with a flush of soft luminous pink highlights – Max achieved this look by mixing Radiant Glow Illuminator with Mineral Shimmer Dust in Pink Diamonds. Apply VX Volume Mascara to complete this stunning bronzed cat eye.

CHEEK GLOW: Cheeks were blushing on the runway using – Mineral Shimmer Blush in Coral Queen, finished with a light dust of our Mineral Shimmer Dust in Diamonds and Pearls for added highlight. Remember to also apply this versatile shimmer along the brow bone, inner corners of the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and on the cupids bow for an incredible glow.

LIPS: The subtle nude lip was achieved by first applying Glam Lipstick in Go Nude followed by V Gloss in Goddess with a touch of Mineral Shimmer Dust in Pink Diamonds for a hint of shimmer.

“I truly loved working with the divine duo behind Watson x Watson. The stunning sisters brought the essence of summer to life on the jungle inspired runway and Curtis Collection was honoured to create the perfect makeup look to compliment the modern, chic trends. Its all about the Naked Glow right now when it comes to makeup. Flawless nude, luminous skin was definitely the hero on the runway. A big thanks to our A Team of artists who truly created yet another iconic Curtis Collection look”
