NYFW Fall 2013 Make Up How To: William Okpo

Janell Geas Artistic Director, Aveda Makeup, designs distinctive bohemian beauty for William Okpo Fall/Winter 2013.

“The look at William Okpo is heavily influenced by Mexican painter Frida Kahlo –think bohemian and nomadic. She is the girl who is not afraid to be her natural self,” said Janell Geason. 

“The brow is super strong, yet imperfect. It’s forward-thinking and a bit ‘out there.' This is distinctive, refined beauty, not at all about being too polished or pristine.”    

How To Get The Look:
STEP 1: To create a smooth and even complexion, apply Aveda Inner Light™ Mineral Tinted Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Add Aveda Inner Light™ Concealer where needed.  To set, apply a light dusting of Inner Light™ Mineral Loose Powder with the Aveda Uruku Bronzing Brush.

STEP 2: Fill in the brows with Petal Essence™ Eye Definer in Cacao or Black Orchid to create a Frida-inspired look.   

STEP 3: Use Aveda Petal Essence™ Single Eye Color in Antique Gold* from the lash line to brow, creating a beautiful wash of color.  For darker complexions, choose Aveda Petal Essence™ Single Eye Color in Ginger Root*.

STEP 4: Finish eyes with a coat of Aveda Mosscara™ in Black Forest.

STEP 5: Swirl Aveda Uruku Bronzing Brush in Petal Essence™ Face Accent in Peach Lights and blush cheeks to add contour.

STEP 6: Prep lips with Aveda Nourish-Mint™ Renewing Lip Treatment.  Then color the lips with a blend of Nourish-Mint™ Smoothing Lip Color in Cana and Melochia Bloom.
