The final installation of our London Fashion Week AW21 experience was spent back stage at David Koma. Airing after the official fashion week dates had wrapped, this visual event featured metallic fashion, monochromatic hues and bright pops of colour in makeup looks.
Drawing inspiration from graphic liner and 1960s trends and armed with his pro essentials, our Director of Artistry Pablo Rodriguez doubled-up on the eye definition, introducing a burst of colour alongside our Precision Gel Eyeliner in the shade Infinity.
A nostalgic look reminiscent of nights at the disco, platform shoes and bold tunics, Pablo created a makeup look inspired by the likes of Edie Sedgwick, Twiggy and Mia Farrow.
THE LOOK: DOUBLE-DECKER LINER
A true nod to the 1960s, this graphic eyeliner look wouldn’t be complete without a jet-black swipe of colour to define the eyes. Calling on the blacks, greens and blues featured in David Koma’s fashion week collection, Pablo brings the monochromatic shades to life by elevating each look with a pop of colour in the form of graphic eyeliner.
“The inspiration for the makeup look for David Koma was 1960’s graphic liners in either green or blue as they were the key colour accents for the collection. It was an overlay of two liners: first, the green or the blue was applied almost all around the eye, bold and graphic on the top, soft and blended on the bottom, and a thin line of black on the top lash line to add extra intensity. As the eyes were the focus, skin, lips and cheeks were pared down with dewy skin and clear lip gloss.”
For the base: Pablo mixes Satin Primer and Skin Base Foundation before buffing into the complexion for a natural, dewy look. Then, subtly sculpt the cheek bones and jaw line with Gel Sculpt.
