give good face: gucci spring 2013

i’m pretty simple when it comes to my “beat” : matte face, highlighter, blush, mascara, cat eye, done. so, when i saw the hair and makeup looks from Gucci’s Spring 2013 RTW show, i was sold. now, i don’t personally do lashes because i’m more of a minimalist (lazy) but they do give the look some necessary drama . . . so, why not?


the makeup look was created by famed makeup artist, pat mcgrath. to achieve the look, mcgrath applied a generous amount of highlight on a simple face. then, she layered brown shadows and pencil on the lid and lower lash line. it was then, smoked out and blended into an almond shape. the look is finally finished off with two sets of lashes. work!


for the hair, a sleek bun with a bit of a twist is the move. hairstylist luigi murenu created a low knot bun. once the bun was created, he added a bit of an origami flair, with bluntly cut extensions wrapped around the simple ‘do.Gucci2

overall, the look can definitely be re-created anytime and anywhere with ease. and, don’t we love that?
