Okay, so a set of bright orange dots mid-face might be a somewhat intimidating and slightly tricky beauty look to pull off on any given day, but it’s fashion week, and the doors of acceptability are wide open. We’re giving this one a try — those bright spots will distract from any sleep deprivation-induced dark circles, for sure.
MAC makeup artist Frances Hathaway put the look together on this one, and it’s all about beautiful, heroic women.
Do what you gotta do to get skin looking perfect but still fresh, brush up those eyebrows, and smack on some lip balm. Here’s what you’ll need to do for the eyes:
Step 1: Gather your tools. You’ll need an eyelash curler, a pencil eraser (probably still attached to the pencil for better grip), and your shadow of choice + matching pigment powder. Hathaway’s pro choice? MAC’s Chromacake — it’s a solid cake of opaque, matte, hyper-pigmented color — in Genuine Orange, along with the matching Pigment.
Step 2: Curl your lashes, but skip the mascara.
Step 3: Using the pencil eraser, dot on ultra-pigmented Chromacake after wetting the palette.
Step 4: Set it with the matching pigment.
Step 5: Pretend like you slept the full recommended seven to eight hours last night.
