Malcolm McLarens’ 1984 single Madame Butterfly inspired the look at Imitation. The look exuded both sensuality and sexuality; it was all about the eyes and lips. In the words of lead makeup artist Nadine Luke for MAC Cosmetics , you “would want to look like that.”
To create the eyes, Feline eye pencil was blended on the lid (and applied to the lower lash line) with Legendary Black Pro Longwear Eye Shadow on top, Black Fix Studio Fix Lash mascara was applied to both upper and lower lashes and a shine gloss (to emulate the look of the girls in the steam room in the video) finished off the look. On the lips Vino Lip Pencil was blended as a stain on the lips, then Media Lipstick was applied on top of the stain. Prep+Prime Skin , Studio Sculpt Foundation , Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder and a very minimal application of Well Dressed Blush .
