Bombshell Beauty

Bombshell_01

We had the privilege of working with some incredible artists on this shoot – not only Maggie herself, a talented and beautiful actress, but also Justin Woods, our hairstylist, and Ashlee Glazer, our makeup artist. They were kind enough to share their techniques so that you and I can get this bombshell beauty look…

How to get that “mack on me” makeup…

Ashlee took two eyeliners – MAC Teddy and MAC Coffee – and rubbed them all around the inner upper and lower water line and on the lid in a cat eye shape.

Ashlee blended the pencils together, creating a smooth, sexy shape that follows natural bone structure. Next, she used the Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage palette, brushing the dark brown on first and closest to the lash line. She buffed up with the medium brown all the way into the crease, fanning out by the brow bone.

Taking the bronze color from the same palette and using the NARS #14 brush – “it’s like a pencil smudge brush” – Ashlee rubbed underneath the eye along the lower lash line, following the shape of the eye and eventually angling upward to meet the “V” of the cats-eye.

So what is the beauty routine of a woman intent on adventure?

“Think a chic glamorous hippie in the desert,” said lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury. The vibe was a sensual, earthy seventies. Tilbury was armed with a full spread of MAC’s cream eyeshadow to create a warmed-up, weather-beaten look with brown tones and bronzer. “This is make-up that looks good on everyone – it’s what every woman wants,” Charlotte explained. We quite agree.

 

 “We contoured the eyes with cream eye colours in earth tones, sculpted cheeks with lashings of bronzer, and applied lip-plumping, tan-enhancing beigey-pink gloss. The foundation is glowy, too; there’s nothing matte about this look.”

LE BAL // Paris

Just around the turn from the Arc de Triomphe behind a gated walled entrance was a glowing  evening of artistic collaboration and celebration of M·A·C Cosmetics & fashion icon Carine Roitfeld at the dreamy Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild. It is no surprise that a woman who is known for her smoky eye and “violating the codes of bourgeois elegance” would find her way into the heart of M·A·C and bring a new collection of makeup to the world table so that we may all be that cool french chic.

The night was alive through the flashes of cameras as the soul crushing voice of Paloma Faith echoed through the historic french rooms with graceful ballet dancers twisting and turning among famous designers sipping champagne and super models taking the air out of the room.  It was…

A night to remember.
