Inspired by Tiffany Koury's Victorian Social in Hollywood theme for Fall 2008, professional makeup maven Jo Strettell for Rimmel came up with an equally eyecatching look to match. "Stained Bordeaux lips, exaggerated lashes and bursts of gold shimmer on a clean eye to create a striking elegance," explains Strettell about look that graced some of the hotter runways including Peter Som, Rachel Roy and Derek Lam.
How to get the Jo Strettell for RIMMEL look at Tiffany Koury Fall 2008:
Start by smoothing out and balancing the skin tone with a light primer. For a
glowing, flawless look, build the foundation with Rimmel's Fix & Perfect Primer.
For a dewy, natural finish, even - but don't cover - skin with 16 Hr Lasting Finish Mineral
Enriched Foundation, which is runway ready and transfer- & afterparty-proof.
Run a soft kohl eye pencil around the eye rim for a smudgy effect, and soften and blend along the lashline. For a sexy finish, try Spark It Up gold shimmer black kohl pencil.
Finish the look with a gold powder or shimmer. Apply a small smudge on the inner eye and blend out to the outer corner, and the spread out like a fan.
Use a Bordeaux colored pencil to line and define lips (and keep the dreaded lipstick bleed at bay). Fill in with matching shade of lipstick, like long lasting - but creamy - Lasting Finish Lipstick in Bordeaux or Balistic.
Tip! Blot with a tissue, then take a Q-tip and gently wipe around the lip line to soften the pencil line for a soft, creamy, stain.
