Hourglass Cosmetics: Get The Look For Imitation of Christ SS13.

I think that you already know how much I love looking at all the makeup looks from the Fashion Weeks. I think I could spend hours looking at them if I did not have a job (ha!)…

I also love the fact that you find out about the new seasonal products quite early. And for me it’s never too early.

So here is the look that was created by makeup artist Robin Black for Hourglass at the Imitation of Christ show SS13.

The look was inspired by Brooke Shields in Pretty Baby, Vanessa Beecroft, and Pina Bausch and ‘distinctly ethereal and surprisingly wearable’.

Here is what Robin Black said: “We varied the shade depending on the woman’s coloring. And for those models in the third edgy space, we extended the lip color outside of the mouth for a more theatrical look that is not for real life.”

Hourglass For Imitation of Christ Spring 2012. Create The Look

I am happy to share the look that was created by Hourglass Artistic Director Gina Brooke for the Imitation of Christ Spring 2012 runway show which took a place on the 8th September at the W Hotel at Union Square.

“The theme of the show was a super-chic wedding party and designer Tara Subkoff orchestrated the affair to seem like a lighthearted walk down the aisle. To accompany the distinctly romantic and playful mood, Brooke devised a look that showcased flawless skin, vivid eyes and pale lips. “It’s about clean, beautiful and memorable makeup—it is a wedding after all,” says Brooke. “This look is timeless, it’s never going to go out of style.”

Even the inspirations testified to the classic motif: Elizabeth Taylor in A Place in the Sun (1951), Grace Kelly in To Catch A Thief (1955), and Catherine Deneuve in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, a 1964 French musical.”

Here are the products that were used:
