2011 Spring Paris Fashion Week Backstage Beauty Report: Collette Dinnigan

2011 Spring Paris Fashion Week: Collette Dinnigan

The Spring '11 Collette Dinnigan collection was shown at The Hotel Le Meurice in Paris yesterday and Team Bella was backstage in the City of Love to watch face painter Alex Box — who also happens to be Creative Director for Illamasqua — create what she said was a "shy beauty" look. The "soft and intimate look" was designed to be felt, more than seen according to the makeup artist and is especially pretty because "nothing is overpowering each other and every aspect of the look is on the same level." MAC's Shell Cream ColoUr Base was patted onto the apples of the cheeks for a natural looking glow, while Dusk Cream ColoUr Base covered the lids. Gilded White Power Point Pencil was dotted on the inner corner of the eyes before lashes were coated with brown mascara and Clear Lip Conditioner was applied to the lips. It was teamed with hair that was tonged in random places, brushed out and left flyaway.
