Jason Wu

I fell a bit in love with the gorgeous “Ming dynasty and 1940’s Hollywood” green lids at this Fall’s Jason Wu show – and, okay, that’s probably 85% because I’ve been hugely into dark green recently, but still. They were pretty! It’s admittedly not a combination that sounds like it would really work, but it totally does, right?

Head makeup artist Diane Kendal created the look using MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Tealo (lid) and MAC Eye Kohl in Minted (crease) to act as a base, then added Club and Kelly Green (pigment) on top. To finish off, she used Haute and Naughty on the lashes, Blooz Eye Kohl to the lashline, and Blacktrack to finish defining the cat-eye shape of the eye makeup. (source)

    • I'm a bit head over heels for the Diane von Furstenburg eye, myself – I wish I had double lids, if only so I could pull of looks like that! :P

    The Jason Wu look is probably my favorite of this season! I was so sure I saw Dark Truth when I first saw the pictures, but then the breakdown came out and I was not even close lol

    Rae, I'd love to see your interpretation of the makeup at Jason Wu's show. Would you be interested in doing it?

    • I'd love to! Pulling out my green shadows as we speak – I don't think I have anything in that exact tone (and I definitely don't have that model's gorgeous features or skintone), but I'll see if I can do something similar :)
