Makeup at Suzanne Rae F/W 2013 by Kevyn Aucoin

For the Suzanne Rae 2013 Fall Collection, Lead Makeup Artist, James Vincent uses monochromatic colors in unexpected places. The inspiration for the Suzanne Rae 2013 collection is the Virgin Mary so Vincent wanted a look that felt both virginal and strong.

“While not an everyday look, this is perfect for the runway” says Vincent. “If you are afraid to try reds and bright colors that we are seeing this season, monochromatic is an easy way to make difficult colors work and look natural. One of the things I love about Suzanne Rae is there is a sense of fluidity about her clothing- they are very easy and very strong at the same time and I think Kevyn Aucoin works the same way.”

The complexion is flawless but very sheer, they eyes are soft and sculpted, and the apples of the cheeks are flushed with a beautiful rosy red. For a pop of excitement Vincent also used The Creamy Glow in “Isidore” and The Lip Liner in “Cerise” under the eye, creating a monochromatic makeup scheme. Vincent completed the look with the new Kevyn Aucoin Nail Lacquer in “Bloodroses” to bring the entire look together.

My Kevyn Aucoin Favorites

Did you guys pick up any Kevyn Aucoin goodies during their Cyber Monday sale this year? I’m wondering if you picked up any of these products, which are some of my favorite KA things:

This brand is pretty niche and each step they make, whether in packaging or distribution, etc., is very thoughtfully made. So when I saw this tweet pic the other day, I got excited:

I can’t wait to see what they are up to now!
