MBFWA: Steven Khalil x Bobbi Brown

Couturier and designer Steven Khalil has just showcased his latest couture collection at the Mecedes-Benz Fashion Week for 2017 Resort Collection. This is one of the most anticipated shows from this weeks line-up and it is the brand's second consecutive year at MBFWA, the first being the 20th anniversary for both the label and for MBFWA.

This year, the collection features a mixture of both classical and modern elements through exquisite tailoring and unique designs; muted monochromatic palette, exclusive textured fabrics, sheer Italian Organza complete with hand beading and embroidery.

Partnering with Bobbi Brown, Steven Khalil debuts his collection with fresh and luxe make up. Drawing inspiration from the romantic lights that resonates from the Eiffel Tower at nightfall, make up director and Bobbi Brown lead artist Alphie Sadsad made the eyes the focal point of the look to complement a flawless demi-matte skin finish with subtle flushed cheeks and softly-stained lips.

To recreate this 'Paris by night' runway look, start by prepping the skin with the Bobbi Brown Illuminating Moisture Balm and face mist. Skin Foundation Cushion Compact will follow with a Nude Finish Illuminating Powder. Brows are filled in with the Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil and Sparkle Eye Shadow in 'Silver Lilac', 'Sunlight' and 'Silver Moon' are applied and pressed onto the entire lid and inner corners of the eye with fingers. The eye look is then complete with Bobbi Brown's Eye Opening Mascara. To finish the look, the Bobbi Brown Blush in 'Pale Pink' is swept over the cheeks and lips are  stained with the Bobbi Brown Lip Colour in 'Pale Pink'.

"When I think of couture, I think of Paris. When I think about Paris, I think about Paris, by night. I wanted to create a look that is bright and sparkling, like the Eiffel Tower."
