Get the Look: BMX Warrior

As the imminent launch of our SS12 collection, Human Fundamentalism, sets the online world a buzz, we have a breakdown of how to get the look of what we feel is set to be one of this collections most iconic images – the BMX Warrior…


1.      Use Skin Base in SB 01] to highlight the cheeks, nose and cupid’s bow. Intensify by setting with Powder Eye Shadow in Sex, a pure white with a matt finish to create a flawless canvas for the look.

2.     Blend Cream Pigment in Bedaub [Fundamental Palette] over the centre of the lid close to the lash line and below the brow bone to offer adhesion to the Powder Eye Shadows. Blend the yellow green of Powder Eye Shadow in Pivot from the inner corner of the eye up to the crease and underneath the lower lash line for a saturated colour pop!


3.     Press Powder Eye Shadow in Hype [Fundamental Palette] on the inner corner of the eye moving up to and under the brow bone. Follow by applying Hype under the lower lash line, blending into Pivot for a colour infusion of bold yellow and green.

4.     Using Blending Brush I buff Powder Eye Shadow in Burst across the crease and through the lower lash line. This statement colour is sure to be a cult Human Fundamentalism piece.

5.      Line the upper lash line with Precision Ink in Scribe following the natural eye shape and apply Medium Pencil in Elate in the water line to define the eye. Apply two coats of Masquara in Raven to finish this artistic  interpretation of the BMX Warrior.

6.      With the Eye Brow Brush, softly enhance the brows using Powder Eye Shadow in Wolf [Neutral Palette].

7.      Lightly contour the cheeks with Powder Blusher in Create and follow by Powder Blusher in Tweak for extra definition.

8.      Line the lips with Medium Pencil in Spell and apply Lipstick in Box for a deep wash of scarlet red.
