Shady character

“In my work for fashion and beauty photo shoots and red-carpet makeup, I love layering shades and, naturally, my intention was the same on paper,” says Julie Cusson, Chanel’s national makeup artist for Canada. “I wanted the makeup result soft but strong at the same time, a kind of duality between demure and daring.” Cusson played with a mix of rose, plum and brown shades on the eyes. “Lips are bold because it’s something that I always feel is captivating,” she says. “And I added a touch of light on the cheekbones.”

Good angles

“Black eyeliner is back for the fall/winter season in a big way,” says Ronnie Tremblay, who always brings an element of artistry to her makeup work. “Numerous designers used the product as the focus for their show’s beauty look.” The results varied from collection to collection, an approach Tremblay suggests you keep in mind during the holiday season. “Take a classic look but add an unexpected twist.” Here, she incorporated a winged element into a squared-off shape.

Dior Beauty Backstage Face & Body Foundation, $50, Diorskin Mineral Nude Bronze Powder in Warm Sunrise, $58, Backstage Glow Face Palette, $55, On Stage Liner in Vinyl Black, $38, Addict Stellar Shine Lipstick in Diormoon, $46, all at Sephora (sephora.ca).

Go for gold

Joseph Saraceno and Matthew Chow/The Globe and Mail

Runway presentations for labels such as Valentino, Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs offered their unique versions of a flared eyeliner shape in sleek black. But Robert Weir, who has contributed to Vogue Italia, Nylon and numerous other high-fashion titles, took a different approach when it came to enhancing his illustration. “I put a twist on it by doing the liner in gold like we saw in shows for Lutz Huelle and The Blonds,” he says. “I used M.A.C’s Gold Pigment and Glitter to create the wing and the new Pat McGrath Mothership VIII Divine Rose II palette, taking artistic license with skin tone and contour.”

Pigment in Gold, $26, Glitter in Gold, $26 both at M.A.C Cosmetics (maccosmetics.ca). Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VIII Artistry Palette Divine Rose II Collection, $170 at Sephora (sephora.ca).
