Our Elizabeth Arden makeover

Our Elizabeth Arden makeover

On Friday, we had an incredible day hanging out with the Official Beauty Sponsors of Vodafone London Fashion Weekend, Elizabeth Arden, at their Fashion Weekend station at Somerset House. We were lucky enough to get a makeover courtesy of International Make-Up Artist for Elizabeth Arden, Joseph Hernandez, who showed us how to re-create a glamourous beauty look straight from the runway. Hernandez told us he was inspired by the makeup worn in the 1940’s. This meant dark, filled in brows, flawless glowy skin, lots of black mascara, and a rich, blood-red, glossy lip.

He began by prepping our skin with Elizabeth Arden’s world famous Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant to create a healthy-looking, dewy complexion. He dabbed this along our cheekbones and under the brows, highlighting the spots that naturally reflect light and create a gorgeous glow. The eyes were then brightened with Color Intrigue Eyeshadow in Moonbeam, which was applied over the lids for a smooth, silky finish.

Next, Hernandez buffed Elizabeth Arden’s Pure Finish Mineral Powder Foundation SPF 20 into our skin to create a flawless complexion, which, Hernandez told us, was essential for creating that 1940’s look. And healthy-looking skin would not be complete without a rosy blush, so he blended the Ceramide Cream Blush in Honey on the apples of the cheeks for just a hint of colour that looked beautifully natural. Once we had flawless, glowing skin, Joseph moved on to the brows. He filled in sparse areas with Color Intrigue Dual Perfection Brow Shaper and Eyeliner in Brunette, so that the brows were full and dark.

The final step to achieving this look, and our personal favourite, was creating a bold, bright lip. Hernandez used a lip brush to apply a heavy dosage of Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in Rouge. This rich, vibrant red completely stole the show and we felt so gorgeously glamourous that after the makeover was finished, we felt VERY Rita Hayworth!
