Rio De Janeiro Fashion Week F/W 2010
“Fashion Rio” – Fall/Winter Makeup ’10
One of my favorite makeup looks from Rio’s fashion week is worn by Giulia Borges‘ models. The contrast between stark white skin and their metallic red lips is gorgeous. Most of Giulia’s collection was black and white, making the bright lips totally pop. While the lips look as if they are filled in with metallic color, look close enough and you’ll see that it’s actually a deep red lipstick with red glitter layered over it!
The models walking in the Lucas Nascimento show wore smoky cordovan colored eyeshadow that is heavily contoured in the inner corners of their eyes. The eyes are rimmed with black, and the lips are non-existent. Last season, bleached eyebrows were seen at just about every show; looks like that trend is still alive and kickin’!
More heavy contouring at Victor Dzenk show! This time, the model’s temples and cheekbones are being strongly shaded in. The eyes are semi-smokey with long, dramatic fake lashes, and the inner rims of the eyes are lined with bright white pencil. Not a big fan of the thick white braid wrapped around their heads, but the rest of the look is very unique. I give it two thumbs up!
One of the more interesting looks of the week, Auslander’s models wore bright white painted faces! The white starts completely opaque at the forehead and starts to fade out as it reaches the chin. Many of the models wore a black netted headpiece over their faces.
I’m suprised how unique and creative the makeup has been during Rio’s Fashion Week! I love when artists are allowed to step outside of the box.
