Kryolan Sponsors Make-up for Betsey Johnson at #NYFW

Kryolan Professional Make-up collaborated with designer & TV personality Betsey Johnson for the debut of her Spring/Summer 2015 Collection at New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Inspired by weddings and promoting marriage equality, the collection consisted of gorgeous and theatrical bridal dresses. Kryolan’s key make-up artist Kelly Thompson created a dramatic look to fit the show which included models, drag queens and Bravo TV’s Real Housewives.
“We were so proud to team up with Betsey Johnson for her Spring/Summer 2015 runway show,” said Kryolan USA CEO Claudia Longo

For a flawless face, Thompson used HD Micro Primer followed by HD Micro Foundation Cream, a micronized foundation with unique light reflection. Next, Thompson buffed the skin to perfection with Premium Smoothing Brush Art. 9742 to give a soft, polished look. Cream Blusher in coral was used to give a soft color on the cheeks and highlighter Illusion in satin and silk was patted just on top of the cheekbones. She then dusted the skin with HD Micro Finish Powder, which contains micronized pigments that allowed the skin to come through without being too matte.

Thompson created a dramatic smokey eye with “doll like” lashes as requested by Betsey who described the eye look as “perfectly imperfect.” First Thompson used ebony HD Cream Liner as a base with black Eye Shadow from Variety 1 Palette. The shape was rounded above the crease, coming around in a soft corner, then circling under the eye like an egg shape with no sharp lines or circles. Eyelashes were key for this look. Kryolan Lashes Art. 9354 and Art. 9361 F4 were stacked on the top eye. Eyelashes Art. 9372 and Art. 9371 TV4 were used for the bottom lashes.

To finish the look, Thompson gave the lips bold and intense color with Faceliner in 32 filled on the entire lips and then topped with “Rock” Lip Stain. Betsey requested a deep red with lots of shine and the lips shaped round, slightly over lined. Betsey described the lips as “red wine colored 50s house wife.” Last but not least a Swarovski Crystal was added on the cheek as a “beauty mark” in classic Betsey Johnson style applied with Mastix Spirit Gum.

“We were so proud to team up with Betsey Johnson for her Spring/Summer 2015 runway show,” said Kryolan USA CEO Claudia Longo. “Betsey loves color and theatrical make-up which made this partnership a really great fit.”
