Catwalk to Counter: Dolce & Gabbana SS14

This season Dolce & Gabbana presented a collection evoking traditional decorations, and ancient Sicily, where history and myth come together. This idea was brought to life backstage, where brand Creative Advisor Pat McGrath created a luminous spring look.

Make-up Artist Massimilliano della Maggesa showed us how to recreate this fresh make-up at the Dolce&Gabbana counter in-store at Harrods.

    Apply Luminous Liquid Foundation from the centre of the face outwards for a luminous base and add Perfect Finish Concealer Pen where needed for extra coverage. Next apply Crayon Intense in Chocolate along the upper lash line – apply vertically (not horizontally) and blend for quick, yet perfect, results.

    Apply the lighter shades from Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Vulcano to create a deep gilded look. Follow with Intense Liquid Eyeliner in Baroque Bronze and a few layers of PassionEyes Mascara in Terra for volume and length.

    Mix Classic Cream Lipstick in Bellissima and Traviata and apply with greater intensity at the Cupid ’s bow with fingers; use your foundation brush to soften the edges. Finish the look with swirls of Luminous Cheek Colour in Rosebud, and add the Apricot at the hairline to create shadows for subtle definition.

Final Result

This look exudes everyday elegance. Warm and natural, the colour palette echoes the luminous shades of a spring blossom, making it perfect for the current season.
