Recreate it: Temperley S/S 2006

01Mar10

So today happens to be my 4th year with my boyfriend. And in honour of all things romantic, I thought it would be fun to go back 4 years and recreate a soft romantic look from the catwalk. The Temperley show of Spring 2006 was just that, romantic, flushed and drawn from Shakespeare’s Ophelia. Charlotte Tilbury chose to adorn models in a palette of blurred mauves, roses, and chocolates, highlighted with antique golds and bronzes. Sigh.

To get the look:

Start with a sheer foundation that will even out skin tone but keep skin natural. Try MAC Face and Body. Don’t powder skin because we want that dewy look.

Apply a liquid highlighter like Benefit Moonbeam to the tops of cheekbones and browbones.

Blend a cream blusher like MAC Ladyblush into the apples of the cheek for that youthful glow.

Sweep an iridescent golden bronze colour over the lids, something like MAC Patina or Estee Lauder Bronze Cube and wing upwards slightly.

Apply Illamasqua Liquid Metail in Solstice in the inner corner of the eye. Finish with a coat of Estee Lauder Sumptuous mascara in Brown.

Finish lips with a colour like MAC lipstick in Myself.

I’m definitely going to be tryng this one. Hope you like!
