I created this casual look centered on Kjaer Weis latest releases for fall/winter 2015. The feel of the collection is quite autumnal and warm, but since the textures are almost ethereal it is not your typical heavy on the berry kind of thing, but more of the melancholy of fallen leaved. It's very pretty, but also sheer and light, and my guess is that Kirsten Kjaer Weis had a somewhat different customer in mind when creating it: a person with pale, almost translucent skin and blue eyes that reflect the northern sky.
On this Jersey girl these colors create an effortless natural look. I could have fortified with colored bases and whatnot, but wanted to maintain the natural lightness of the Kjaer Weis aesthetics. I didn't use the beautiful Kjaer Weis foundation because I'm horribly allergic to the coconut oil in its base. It makes me sad.
Here's what I did:
Face primer- YSL Touche Eclat Blur
Foundation- Edward Bess sheer Satin Cream Compact Foundation in Natural
Concealer- Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage
Powder- Cle de PEau
Kjaer Weis cream blush Above & Beyond applied generally and smoothed out with a Beauty Blender (I could probably use more color).
NARS pencil just through the tail end.
Kjaer Weis Captivate Kip Tint
Sisley The Glace lip liner (discontinued). It's a perfect match to the lip tint, and I find it necessary to keep the slippery lip color in place without scattering micro gold shimmer all over. The Sisley pencil is wonderful, but I'm sure you can find a MAC equivalent.
MAC Ricepaper all over the lid, applied with a wide and large brush. Then I went in with a Paula Dorf sheer Crease using the Kjaer Weis eye shadow in Transcend both in the crease and outer V, blending it into a semless look.
Eyeliner It Cosmetics Silk Taupe
Mascara MAC Zoom Lash.
Scent of that day was Tom Ford Purple Patchouli (discontinued). You could have smelled me across the bridge.
