To evoke TESS and LEON’s SKINFATUATING complexions, start with the essentials – SKIN FETISH: Sublime Perfection The System. Prep the skin with the Sublime Perfection Primer using your fingertips, then buff Sublime Perfection Foundation into the skin with the Sublime Perfection Foundation Brush. (TESS wears ‘LIGHT 4’, LEON wears ‘LIGHT 7’.) Both divine McGrath Muses wear the Balm side of the Skin Fetish Highlighter + Balm Duo, bringing light to the high points of the face. For flawless finesse, LEON sets his complexion with the Sublime Perfection Setting Powder ‘LIGHT 1’, applied with the Sublime Perfection Powder Brush.
To capture TESS and LEON’s rosy resplendence, blend these two shades across the cheeks and to the perimeter of the face – ‘ROSE QUARTZ 005’ from the Blitz Astral Quad: Ritualistic Rose and ‘BLITZ BORDEAUX’ from the Blitz Astral Quad: Iconic Illumination. Or consider this alternate artistry approach – sweep MOTHERSHIP VIII: Divine Rose II ‘ROSE SEDUCTION’ eye shadow onto the cheeks and bloom without caution.
To create TESS’s luxurious lingerie-inspired lip, first define the shape with PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencil ‘BUFF’. To add divine depth, apply the BLITZ BORDEAUX’ pigment from the Blitz Astral Quad: Iconic Illumination to the center of the lip. For barely-there brilliance, layer on LUST: Gloss ‘NUDE NEGLIGEE’. For an alternate take on the soft nude lip, LEON wears Lip Fetish Balm in the cult-classic ‘CLEAR’.
LEON and TESS wear interpretations of one of Mother’s most iconic runway looks, from Louis Vuitton Cruise 2020.
TESS’s vibrant variation begins with a sweep of the Mothership VIII: Divine Rose II shade ‘ROSE SEDUCTION’ above the crease and through the brow with a fluffy brush. For the next step, define the inner crease, outer corner and under the lower lashline with the Blitz Astral Quad: Iconic Illumination pigment ‘BLITZ BORDEAUX’.
To recreate LEON’s divine visage, blend Blitz Astral Quad: Iconic Illumination pigment ‘BLITZ BORDEAUX’ through the crease, sweeping up through the brow and toward the temples with a large fluffy brush, then under the lower lashline with a pencil brush.
Both looks continue with a couture approach; use a flat brush dampened with Mehron Mixing Liquid and swipe ‘ASTRAL GOLD ALLURE’ across the lids, to the inner corner of the eyes and the Cupid’s bow. Glide Perma Precision Liquid Eyeliner along the upper lashline and extend outwards to a wing. Softly blend PermaGel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil ’XTREME BLACK’ along the lower lashline with a small detail brush. For a brilliant flash of colour, define the lower lashline with the instant cult-favourite triochome, ‘VR SEXTRATERRESTRIAL’ from Mothership VIII: Divine Rose II using a damp liner brush for maximum colour intensity and shine. Curl the lashes and sweep through them from root to tip with the DARK STAR Mascara.
