We all know that Rosie H-W is, quite frankly, a goddess. Whiplash hair, feline eyes, that incredible Victoria’s Secret body. She’s enough to make grown men cry and make Angelina Jolie look like, well a bit of a moose. (Sorry Angelina).
When I saw pictures of her at the Burberry show last week in London, and at Mario Testino’s 1930’s party that night (but more on that later), I had to find out what her makeup look was. So I emailed her makeup artist, Florrie White, for the inside scoop.
As Rosie is the face of Burberry Florrie was able to choose whatever she wanted from the gorgeous new Burberry makeup line (an MM fave, if you hadn’t already gathered), to perfect that already pretty damn near perfect face. Here’s what Florrie used:
Decleor Harmonie Calm and Neroli Oil
Burberry Sheer Foundation in 04/05
Burberry Sheer Concealer no 02
Burberry Warm Glow
Burberry Midnight Brown eye pencil
Burberry Sheer Eyeshadows in Midnight Brown and Chestnut
The inspiration for the gorgeous, glowing makeup at the Issa show at London Fashion Week this season was Bo Derek in ‘10’. It was a super sexy, vibrant, colourful show (complete with Ana Beatriz in full-on carnival headdress and costume) and the makeup made the girls look like Ipanema goddesses. Here’s what Kay used:
MyFace MyMix foundation
Jurlique Rose Silk Finishing Powder
Revlon SkinLights in Warm Glow on the tops of the cheekbones
NARS Laguna to contour, shade and sun-kiss the girls
Stila Convertible Colour in Poppy
Chanel Eyeliner pencil in Brun-Ciuvre smudged into lashline and on inner rim of eye
Woo-hoo! Celebrate good times, come on dah dah dah dah dah dah – OK so Kool & the Gang is not quite the same when you write it down, but you get the gist. Mega London makeup artist, Kay Montano is doing more fabulous how-to videos for Because London. This one is a homage to Debbie Harry and a time when glamour met punk met disco met – well let’s just say some rules were meant to be broken!
