Makeup Trends….Versace Spring 2010

The other name of Glamorous is Versace. Donatella Versace creates magic with clothes, may be her fluid-y evening gowns or her mini dresses. The house of Versace is all about being sexy…….its not only their clothes but also their makeup trends every season that are talk of the town.
Makeup maestro Pat McGrath was inspired by lilacs and purples to mimic a fresh sexiness this spring. Its all about glamorizing pastels like lilac over a clean canvas.

Lets get the look….

(I'd not be suggesting the product that she used as most of them are not selling in India. Please refer to other sites to get the exact products. I'm giving substitutes for what Pat McGrath has used on models. I am writing the most wearable way of getting this look in the day to day life.)

Prep and prime the face with a face primer so that the foundation glides naturally on the skin. Dab some foundation where needed starting from the centre of the face going outwards and downwards. Dab some concealer to hide under eye circles and some on the sides of the nose wings to eliminate any redness or blotchiness. Dust some loose powder over all this to set the foundation and concealer and make them look flawless.


Smile and apply a soft shimmery plum on the cheek bones blending it into the hollows of the cheeks. Dust a matte pink blush with a fluffy blush brush over the heights of the cheeks for a spring time glow. Stay away from stark shimmers as this look doesn't demand that.


Prime the eyes for a long lasting eyeshadow stay. Apply a dark plumy purple in the crease and outer corners. Use a beige shimmer on the brow bone for highlighting and use some in the inner corners too to open up the eyes. Apply lilac eyeshadow on the upper lid and on the middle third of lower lid. Trace a black pencil liner on the lash line and smudge it into the lash roots of the upper lid. Smudge some more lilac eyeshadow over it for a brighter line. Dip a damp liner brush in the lilac eyeshadow and draw a thicker line over the upper lid. You can also apply a bright lilac liquid liner to amplify the effect. In the inner rims of lower lid apply a grape colored eye liner to enhance eye color. Apply 3-4 coats of volumizing mascara and comb in for definition and removing clumps. Fill in the gaps in between the brow hairs and set with a brow gel.


Dot and dab a light flesh colored lipstick and end up with some shiny pink or red gloss.

Versace always has dark eyes and pale lips. This one is a fresher side to their never-getting-out-of-the-trend concept. Pair up with a lovely hair band and rock on with appropriate clothes.

Till then,
