Another make up look from yesterday's show. This time I poked around the backstage at Xiao Li and once again met amazing Lan Nguyen-Grealis, who was head make up artist on the show. The inspiration - as usual - was the fashion collection - full of Icelandic vibes, glacier and iceberg feels - think lots of blue and white. The designer wanted to break away from this cold theme and decided that she wants to warm up the look using make up. And so pink came to the rescue with pink hues on eyes, lips and hair to create a statement look, which still can be very girly.

As a base, Lan used a completely brand new The Body Shop product - Insta Blur All-In-One 5-Action Perfector. Coming out in May, this universal-shade primer is one of the best things I have ever seen. It literally melts into your skin and creates a perfect matte base for any foundation you may have. Lan really praised this product and I got some inside info saying that there aren't any press releases on this primer yet, so you've heard about it here first! After applying foundation, Lan accentuated cheekbones using Radiant Highlighter. The main focus were the eyes and the hot pink look was created first using Colour Crush Lipstick in Passionate Pink on the eyelids, followed by Colour Crush Eyeshadow in Berry Cheeky. In the corners of the eyes Lan used pale pink and white eyeshadows to add little shimmer and open them up a little. Define & Lengthen Mascara was swiped on both brows and lashes and the whole look was set using Vitamin E Face Mist.
