“What’s Lily Wearing?” Wednesday!

On Wednesdays, the makeupbyjanine blog will give you a peak at one of my personal fave runway photos.  Warning: these arent “try this at home” kind of looks.  Instead, they are closer to visual art: inspiring, creative and imaginative.  I love to study the relationship between the makeup and the clothing designs. . . how a strong graphic eye can make a feminine dress more modern, or how over-the-top theatrical makeup looks right at home with fanciful, avant-garde couture.

You may be thinking, “um, okay, but who is Lily?”  Lily Donaldson is a runway model.  When comparing makeup, I think its helpful to view all these looks on the same face. You can see what is part of the look vs. what may be differences in facial features (for example, is that an intentionally bold brow? or does that girl just have crazy dark brows?).  So I chose Lily Donaldson, for a few reasons:  shes ubiquitous at the shows, popping up on seemingly every runway; her face is exceptionally versatile; and i swear the girl never takes a bad photo.

So thats the idea.  Happy Wednesday, I hope you are inspired.Christian Dior SS09 Couture
