For the makeup look MAC Cosmetics lead makeup artist Benjamin Puckey chose brights instead of the traditional dark route. “We wanted to do a variation of [her look] so instead of using a dark eyeliner we chose to use a very bold color. We chose a very bright green and a very bright orange, but as a modern unexpected variation on the look, we bleached the brows. So it’s just the eyeliner with mascara on the upper lashes and a completely neutral, bare face with a beige lip.”

“We looked at the colors in her collection and we saw that kelly green/chartreuse really stood out in the collection,” said Puckey. “We thought it was a really good accent color for the collection so we went with these two colors for the look.”
