Feb 20, 2015 >> Snag the Look: #GFxTOPSHOP
It may be in the single digit temperatures in Chicago, but that didn’t stop us from channeling Spring vibes for our annual #GFxTOPSHOP Valentine’s Day event. Before thirty of our favorite girl crushes flocked to Fig & Olive, we primped our models for a fashion presentation showcasing one of our favorite spring color trends for fashion: white, blush and nudes.
And on the face? Camped out in Dorothy & Delora make up studio, Goldplaited artists Kristin Andersson and Megan Holinger set to work to create a sultry and sweet look for Ford models Asia and Stasia. The result? A nod to the 1960’s focused on the eye, a glossy lip and clean, fresh skin. This change of pace couldn’t have come at a better time. “Our clients have been gravitating toward matte skin and deep red lips this winter,” says Goldplaited cofounder Mal Strong, “and we couldn’t be more excited for dewey skin and pastels!”
MODEL STASIA SPORTS A MODERN CAT EYE
The look for both was the same: a modern, graphic cat eye with a colored lid. Make up artist Kristin chose Stila peach eyeshadow (we love the In The Know eyeshadow palette for a great range of flirty pastels) and Goldplaited’s plum eyeshadow. This combination is perfect to accent Stasia’s skintone and blonde hair. For Asia, Kristin used MAC’s Paradisco and Goldplaited’s dark plum eyeshadows. The warm palette on Asia is a perfectly compliment to dark hair and really opens up her eyes. Asia’s lips went slightly darker than Stasia, but both got a final treatment of Goldplaited’s skinny dip lipgloss—a personal G&F favorite! Slick, shellacked hair finished the look and the girls were ready to strut their stuff for the #GFxTOPSHOP runway.
