FALL.WINTER 2012/13

Femme Phenomenon

With this trend look for the coming fall and winter season, the New York make-up artist Yuko Takahashi pays homage to the power of feminine creativity and declares woman to be a natural phenomenon. “Femme Phenomenon” is the name of the expressive look that stands guaranteed to draw all eyes. What is in fact a classical beauty style is ennobled by carefully designed accents to the status of a fashion statement. This make-up marvelously suits spirited, modern women who always love to try something new – not only in life, but in fashion as well.

Takahashi combines no fewer than three beauty trends to create her fascinating look: Smokey Eyes in saturated jewel and metallic colors, dark-red glossy lips, and highcontrast French nails in chevron style.

Foundation
To ideally bring out highly expressive eyes and lips in this trend look, the foundation stays bright and gentle. First, Takahashi applies HD Micro Primer. This professional foundation smoothes the skin, makes the pores virtually invisible, and adds a little extra for make-up durability. The next step is application of HD Micro Foundation Cream 12 g from the Kryolan High Definition range, then setting with micro-fine HD Micro Finish Powder. Next, a little Blusher 2.5 g (TC 2) in delicate coral red is applied to the cheekbones and shaded downward with Blusher 2.5 g (shading brown). With foundation and blusher, Takahashi is following the general trend to matte foundation, but betrays a pro trick: as she says, “Together with Shimmering Event Foundation, I always add light reflex to the cheekbones. This additionally models the face.”

Eyes
For eye make-up, Takahashi uses her “Six Blocks” technique. She divides the entire area around the eyes into six natural highlight zones. From the brightest to the darkest points, she sets the corresponding shading of the eye shadow to transparent at some points, and fully covering at others – which enables her to achieve maximum emphasis and enlargement of the eyes. With metallic pigments, Takahashi applies modern glamour to this classical look. She initially puts on Eye Shadow Primer and lightly powders it. From the inner corner of the eye to the middle of the lid, Takahashi applies the subtlety shimmering, purple-violet HD Living Color (tanzanite) and fades it far in toward the corners of the eyes, as well as to the lid middle. The outer lid area and the fold of the lid are defined, in almond form, with the warm, metallic pigment HD Living Color (copper), and on the inside are softly faded outward to the eyebrows. The zone under the outer brow is even further emphasized with Highlighter.

In work with pure, color-intensive pigment, color application should be heightened carefully from transparent to full-covering extremes. With pigment eye shadow, application of a base as foundation for the eye areas is an absolute must.

For a perfect canvas Yuko Takahashi applies Kryolan Eyebrow Powder.

Lips
For lips as well, the “Femme Phenomenon” can produce an overwhelming charismatic effect. The mouth is dramatically set off with deep ruby red Lipstick Fashion (LF 416). A little dabbed, transparent gloss conjures up volume.

Nails
To match the lipstick, ruby-red Nail Color (classy) is applied twice. An eyecatcher is a variation of French nails: the Chevron Style. Nail Color (endlessly) is applied to accentuate the nail tips diagonally in the shape of V’s (chevrons).
