Pat McGrath (Dolce & Gabbana): She’s a beautiful, fresh young Italian girl—it’s this cinematic, modern beauty based on Sophia Loren. Just a teeny little eyeliner done with black pencil, pulled out, and we’re adding a quarter length of false lashes to the outer corners. Then we’re doing brown Coffee pencil underneath just so it’s not really hard…with tons of Secret Lash mascara on the top lashes. We’re using the Creamy Foundation on the skin and then a mix of Provocateur and Rose blush mixed together which gives a really healthy glow, and we’re doing a beautiful sheer nude lip with Imperial Passion Duo lipstick. The brows are super groomed because we are giving a nod to Sophia, and it was all about the brow with Sophia Loren.

Guido (Redken): She’s in a market in Sicily on a hot summer night, so the hair is very soft, very pretty. I’m putting Redken Thickening Lotion in the hair to prep it, and then around the perimeter we’re lifting the root with a curling iron and finally sweeping it up very very softly—so everything looks like it could just fall out—soft around the neck, soft around the ears…it’s about a beautiful woman, really. That beautiful Dolce woman.

    This was my favorite beauty look from all the Fashion Week shows, thus far! It's a gorgeous look; fresh enough to wear everyday, but pulled together for an occasion or work. Molto Bello!
    Emily, could you possibly show us your makeup you wore for Fashion Week? I would SWOON!

    Sophia Loren is the perfect muse for Dolce & Gabbana! I love the defined brow, black liner, and soft lip. Such a pretty, feminine look. So flattering!

    The thing about this post that I like apart from the make-up is the fact that it takls about the brilliant work of Path, and that we get to know the story behind it, where the inspiration came from.
    Lovely.

    YAY - the beauty team at Dolce & Gabbana never fails to disappoint me. I love the inspiration board because Sophia's classic beauty is timeless. I feel so honored that I share a birthday with her.
