Poinsettia Christmas look - Catherine Frontin

Catherine Frontin, a freelance makeup artist, was inspired by the poinsettia flower in the original contest guidelines article. Instead of bright reds, she created a burnt, smoky look using red with gold accents. Catherine defined this look as "very elegant, perfect for a Holiday party night." Photography for Catherine's artistry was provided by Leon, Lasting Blueprint Multimedia.

Model, Catherine LoCicero, is wearing:

  • Eyes: copper red was used over entire lid with dark brown blended in the crease. A touch of gold was added to the inner corner of the eye for a brightening effect. The same copper red was used on lower lid and smoked down a little for intensity. Black eyeliner was used on lid and waterline.
  • Cheeks: dark rose blush
  • Lips: dark rose with a touch of red lipstick and clear gloss.
