OCC Cosmetics at Fashion Week

Show : Geren Ford

Inspiration : Leather, Sex Kitten, Sultry, Dangerous, Spontaneous, Risk Taker

Artist : Stephanie Flores

In her own words :

"When Geren Ford asked me to Key the direction of the Makeup for the second Season I was not blown away for the opportunity but by the inspiration behind the collection and the important connection to the makeup, hair and clothing!!!
Models were lined up on a stage with the NYC Hudson river as their backdrop.

Makeup was very smoked out on the lid. We wanted to add depth and inner darkness to the flawless face. Using airbrush foundation we were able to achieve the most natural coat which gave us the freedom to focus on the eyes and create a seduction of blending the blacks. The lips were nude in color and the eyebrows were concealed with a lighter foundation using a brow brush. Cheeks were left natural with only contour as the separation on the cheeks.

Stephanie's Everyday Girl Tip on creating the runway look of Geren Ford Fall 2009 :

" This is definitely not a day look but if your looking to have a good time after hours, this look is the right key to getting you noticed. My tip for an everyday kind of girl is to not go over the crease of the eye, the higher you go on the crease the more the eye will push back. if you just want that sexy smokey eye just blend - blend the darkest black up to the crease and then with a Kohl Liner like Urban Decay Black , line your inner and upper rim from thin to thick on to the edge of the eye. And always mascara mascara mascara.. try Lash Blast from Loreal its amazing. Also play around with color.A great way to add this effect without it being too black is by using a colorful shadow on the inner part of the eye. My favorite shadows to use are the Yaby Pearl Paints which are pigmented like no other in the market. Check them out at . By playing with color you're able to always have a sexy flirty eye without being to mysterious."
