Makeup Monday: Recreate the Runway (Rachel Roy/Bobbi Brown)




I'm a fan of monochromatic makeup, so I was really excited to recreate Bobbi Brown's understated version of the trend. Rosy colors are very feminine and wearable for daytime, but the metallic finish of [what I consider to be] the hero product of this look (Rose Gold shadow) make it extra special.

I made a stop at Sephora to pick up some of the products I needed for this look, not realizing that much of the makeup used backstage at Rachel Roy will not be released until their Spring '12 collection. I had to do a little bit of guess work; I used some products I already had and found a comparable product substitute for cheeks and lips. The crease color I used brought out the peachier undertones - something a little more neutral would let the rosiness shine through a little better. Ah well, I will try again when the collection comes out!

For step by step instructions and the makeup I used, continue reading after the jump.




Makeup used:
Eyes:
UD Primer Potion
Bobbi Brown Rose Gold Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow (lid and lower lash line)
UD Baked shadow (crease - in place of Copper Long-Wear Cream Shadow, which will be released for Spring '12)
brown liner (upper waterline - optional)
mascara

cheeks and lips: 
Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pink Truffle (in place of Uber Beige, which will be released Spring '12)










Done!

 
p.s. If you recreate this (or an other) look, please share it with me on my twitter or facebook.

  23. Lovely look! You captured this nude look so well. :]

  24. i love your lips, but i am sorry to say that the eyeshadow makes you look as if you just cried. there is a strange undertone in the eyeshadow that doesn't flatter your skin tone.

    anyway, your blog is great!
