Makeup Look of the Day: The Model

Studio 54- Andy Warhol with Jerry Hall

Very late '70s/early '80s, the Model is an homage to the first supermodels that burst onto the fashion scene in the mid-Seventies.  Feathered hair, heavy eyeliner, and Studio 54 with all its decadence should come to mind.  Kate Hudson's recent interpretation was inspired by the look Kevyn Aucoin did on '90s model Nadja Auermann (upper left).

For this look, I used a light foundation, black eye pencil on the upper and lower lids, black eyeshadow traced over the liner and winged out and up toward the temples.  Golden shadow was also applied to the inner corners of the eyes and browbones.  Black mascara on curled lashes followed by a hot pink blush (very '70s!) and a dark berry gloss on the lips were the final touches.

Instead of a dark burgundy lip color that you can see on Kate Hudson and Nadja Auermann, I decided to use a dark berry shade because this seemed more '70s to me.  I used Clinique GlossWear in Raspberry Jam. It's a very glossy lip color that comes in a pot with a small brush that allows for precise application.
