Romero Jennings was the lead makeup artist for M.A.C. Cosmetics, for the PORTS 1961 Fall 2010 runway show on Thursday, February 11th at the Promenade in Bryant Park. Jennings said that while the clothes were feminine, they were cut in a masculine way, so he set about creating a look that balanced the clothes, focusing on the eyes.
As you can see from my backstage photo, the look featured matte skin, pale lips, and fierce eyes, created especially for the PORTS 1961 show with three shades of brown,using three different M.A.C products. Jennings also used a lot of M.A.C.’s excellent Studio Fix mascara (their lashes almost look “fake,” but you can still remove the product, easily, he said). Brows were nuded out so the focus remained on the strong eye.
The makeup look was modern, but didn’t distract from the models and the clothes. All the makeup used for this PORTS 1961 show was from M.A.C. Cosmetics. They always seem to try out new products “in the field” during Fashion Week. Here’s a look at what a backstage fashion week makeup table really looks like!
I’m not Steven Spielberg, but in this unedited video, Romero Jennings talks the The Advice Sisters about the PORTS 1961 makeup look for Fall 2010!
The overall look is pretty, but also powerful. “This is a look that every woman can wear,” said Jennings. I agree. Check out the Advice Sisters PORTS 1961 Runway Coverage, and PORTS 1961 Hair reports, too!
