“There’s always a classic Hollywood element to Naeem’s collection, so we knew we wanted to do a lip focus, but I also wanted to do a smokey eye that didn’t feel like a typical one,” Boehmer shares. “It (the collection) has a ’20s/’30s vibe, so I automatically thought of artist Tamara de Lempicka, and what I love of is that the women in her paintings still feel very modern today, and if they came to life, they would seem like really modern, cool girls.” Boehmer blended two eye shadow colors to work on a variety of skin tones, and leave a shadow effect, as if there was Hollywood-style lighting on the face, blending the color up to the brows.He left out the mascara and didn’t emphasize eyebrows to soften the look.
On the lip, he created the deep blood red, chocolate matte lip with no shine, as inspired by de Lempicka’s paintings by starting with a lip liner, then a lip pencil, and then again going back in with the lighter color lip liner color on the very top. Skin was kept very clean, powdered down the center of the face and last used Rosebud salve on the outer edges, “above and below the eye makeup to create definition and light on the runway.”
