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.”



Review and swatches

Start with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum to create a seamless canvas for makeup and treat the skin with an infusion of essential oils. Follow with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer, applied with the Hourglass # 2 Foundation brush, for a glowing complexion. Conceal dark circles or skin imperfections with Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer.


Review and swatches

Contour and highlight cheeks with Hourglass Illume Crème-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light using the #2 brush to blend. Then apply Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush to the apples of the cheeks and blend with the fingers.


Start by applying the shimmering shell shade from the Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Shadow Palette all over the lid, blending with the Hourglass #4 brush. Then, using the same palette, gently tap the bone white shade on the inner corners of the eyes. Sweep the new Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil (launching October 2012) in Espresso from the outer corners of the bottom lash line to just short of the inner corner and smudge using the Hourglass #11 brush. Finish the eyes with two coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara on the top and bottom lashes.

Keep brows natural and full with the new Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil (launching October 2012) in Soft Brunette. The powder wax formula creates the appearance of multi-dimensional arches while the triangular shaped tip allows for precise control.


Apply an even coat of the Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick over the entire lip to create a balanced shape. Available in nine shades from soft rose to bright tangerine, the richly pigmented and silky smooth matte lip color delivers up to 14 hours of continuous wear.
