Valentino Fall 2011 Couture
Here is yet another beautiful look by makeup artist Pat McGrath, this time for Valentino Couture. Not only was the collection angelic, but the makeup complimented it so perfectly. It’s actually a really simple look: a bit of pink on the lids, cheeks and lips, with the gold shadow on the inner corner of the eye as the finishing touch.

NARS Duo Eyeshadow in ‘Windstar’ ($33 at NARS)
M.A.C Shadow in Goldmine ($18 at M.A.C)
NARS makes it super easy with the ‘Windstar’ shadow duo, but one could also use their favourite pink blush and pick up my favourite gold, ‘Goldmine’ by M.A.C.

Josie Maran Lip & Cheek Stain in ‘Tango’ ($25 at Sephora)

Lips are not lined, but rather stained focusing on the inside of the lip (the kind of look one gets after finishing a lollipop!). I love this lip and cheek stain by Josie Maran (although keep this thing sealed well; it dries rapidly) since it performs double duty.

So fresh, angelic and pretty! It’s a gold that doesn’t scare (or go too J.Lo). Would you try it?
