The Quinceanera.com Expo and Fashion Show wrapped up its final show of 2012 in the coastal city of San Diego. The makeup looks from the two designers that showcased their dresses and accessories completed their models’ looks with a variety of color combinations.
Moda 2000 was the first show to walk down the runway. The models had a dewy makeup look with gold shadow sweeped across the eyelid for one model, a light purple highlighting the brow bone and a darker purple on the eyelids of another model, and finally light browns, golds and purples accented the eyes of the remaining models. Makeup was provided by Bellus Academy. The lip colors were a berry pink – a natural lip color that did not overpower the colors of the eyeshadows used.
The second set of models to ‘wow’ the crowd with their makeup looks were the muses of Raul Corona. Known for his extravagant designs and stage-sweeping dress trains, Corona makes sure his models’ makeup complement his Quinceanera dresses. He chose a palette of pink and black hues and created a winged, smokey-eye effect with cosmetics from CoverGirl. To recreate Corona’s look, start with pink shadow from the inner corner of your eyelid to the center of your iris. Then finish the crease and outer corner of your eye with liquid eyeliner and black eyeshadow. The models’ cheeks were dusted with pink blush and a bright neon pink lipstick was used as the lip color. All of the models wore a uniform look, indicative of Corona’s style.
Perhaps some of these looks can inspire you for your own Quinceanera makeup.
