Runway Beauty Looks We Love: Monique LhuillierSep 10, 2012 @ 2:30 pm
While The Little Mermaid remains a Disney classic, Monique Lhuillier’s spring collection re-imagined the meaning of “under the sea.” Striking cerulean blue and gold lids along with a wet-and-dry contrast hairstyle completed the aquatic illusion of Lhuillier’s designs. We went backstage to get the complete breakdown on the water-inspired makeup—from hair to nails—so you can try your hand at creating the couture look at home. Makeup artist, Val Garland, who styled the show, told InStyle.com: “It’s all about the eye color. It’s a great shade for spring and I think women should have fun with their makeup.” Here’s to a bright, colorful season, indeed!
