Get the Look: Backstage Beauty at Jason Wu Spring 2012

Proof that yet again a bright pout isn’t going anywhere, makeup artist Diane Kendal for MAC Cosmetics created a look that she calls “fifties and nineties pop art…inspired by the artist KAWS“.

Get the look with this breakdown from MAC
Studio Finish Concealer — perfects skin only where needed
Blot Powder/Pressed — applied over the center of the face for a polished effect
Silver Dusk Iridescent Powder — dusted above cheekbones, over bridge of nose, and inner corners of the lower lashes for a highlight
Cubic Powder Blush — blended over the lower apples of cheeks with 129 Brush

Blacktrack Fluidline — applied with 210 Brush with precision through the upper lashline only with a minute extension on the outer corners
M·A·C Pro Gloss Texture — dabbled over eyelids for a soft sheen

Redd Lip Pencil — contours and defines the lip
Scarlet Ibis Lipstick (available Spring/Summer 2012) — applied over the entire lip
M·A·C Pro Acid Orange Pigment — patted over the lips with 219 Brush to finish

As evidenced by the looks rocked by models of varying skin tones, this is a look virtually everyone can pull off.
