Just as the right outfit isn’t complete without the perfect accessory, no look is complete without a fresh face of makeup. Such was the case at the Christos, Kenneth Pool and Amsale bridal shows this Bridal Market.
Celebrity makeup artist, Daniel Martin led the brilliant makeup team backstage at the Cristos, Kenneth Poole and Amsale Bridal Shows this past Saturday. Amsale’s inspiration draws from understated drama paired with daring, modern style. To complement the designs, Daniel prepped the skin with Koh Gen Do’s Oriental Plants Essence giving it a fresh, dewy complexion. When sculpting the face, Daniel used Koh Gen Do Fresh Face Cheek Color and Maifanshi Face Powder, enhancing the natural beauty and line of the cheek bone. Amsale also adores a bold, bright lip and by using Koh Gen Do’s Sheer Berry Lip Gloss and Pink Red Lipstick, Daniel was able to create a powerful lip without overwhelming the face.
"The Amsale bride is strong and confident. We focused on creating balanced skin and created dimension to the brows and cheek with sculpting shades. The eyes looked dreamy with liner on the inside of the eye with a few coats of mascara and lips were a healthy pink with a bit of sheen. Refined and polished beauty is the Amsale bride," said Daniel Martin
Koh Gen Do products are available at Barneys New York.
