Once again, Tommy Beauty Pro team was honoured to be invited by the OpenStudio creative directors to join the team to create and execute make-up looks to their designer students’ creative pieces in October 2012.

Each of the designer students: Jamie Yu, Tracy Yun Wong and Sherry Guo, spent months of hard work at the studio to create their art work; and this particular piece is one of their most exciting creations as they get to work with industry professionals (fashion photographer, agency models, pro make-up artist & hair stylist, videographer) and get involved on how their work is done to meet industry standard from start to finish–the amazing art piece at the end always get published in fashion/art magazine locally and internationally.

Material used for each designer’s piece:

1. Jaime Yu: film, craft paper, spray paint, clear wrapping paper, spray paint

2. Tracy Yun Wong: craft paper, clear wrapping paper, cardboard, film, spray paint

3. Sherry Guo: plastic, wrapping paper, garden wire, spray paint

In the past, our collaborative art/fashion work have been published on magazines internationally in New York (USA), Vancouver (BC, Canada), and Taiwan ROC. Not only the designer students were able to learn about the design process at the studio, this project is a real learning experience to prepare them for the future–to be able to know how to search for fashion inspiration, put ideas together into a real fashion piece, know how colours/shapes/texture work in combination, and to train in communication and coordination skills with the industry professionals.

Make-up Artistry

(彩妝趨勢重點)

For make-up artistry, the designer students gathered ideas from beauty/fashion magazines and were inspired by M•A•C PRO’s Autumn/Winter 2012 Trend Report, where the make-up looks were created at major fashion runways in New York, Milan, London and Paris… for the looks we did on the models, three make-up trends were used on three different models respectively. For a full A/W 2012 Make-up Trend Report (20123秋冬彩妝趨勢解析),  please check out my previous blog post by clicking here.

文化融合、結構感與自我風格是2012秋冬趨勢最明白的詮釋。

今年不再拘泥於哪一個年代的特殊風格,對於妝容的特定起源(從古老日本到義大利文藝復興,從大不列顛美女到斯拉夫少女)也運用國際的眼光,來詮釋這些熟悉的美感,這不是文化衝突而是一種文化合作,一些具有全球視野的美麗參考點似乎已顯得不那麼重要了。如同一個世界的旅人,在旅遊時會有系統地拾取美麗元素的全球漫遊者,並不會特意模仿某個特定文化的確切彩妝,也並非文化模仿的彩妝拼湊品。

與世界觀同等重要的是結構感。無論是透過打造一個具衝突感的骨架結構或精雕細琢的五官 紅唇、生動的黑色眼妝或更具優越感的眉毛來達成,這些妝容都投射出一種展現魅力的乾淨手法,由於這樣的魅力確切展現出一種知性與女性深度的態度,因此一瞬間成為永恆,卻又堅決摩登到底。

Sense+Sensibility

(趨勢重點-理性與感性)

“It’s about timeless classics done in a modern way – these are elements of makeup that never go out of fashion but simply get reinvented.” – Terry Barber, Director of Makeup Artistry. These looks ultimately carry a sophistication that elevates them beyond trend, becoming instead a new set of modern Classics.

今年秋冬的趨勢其實就是要用理性的手法呈現女孩的真實面貌,不是把天生膚色完全覆蓋住,而是將膚質、膚色的特色凸顯出來,是感性的、非常有貴族氣息、經過精心設計的,但卻又感覺像是不經意完成有如天生膚質般,既不過亮也不粉霧,呈現出完美的自然肌膚紋理與保水度,但絕不是刻意噴水、加工打亮,或像修片般,就是要讓視覺和觸覺都一樣的完美,而且比前幾季都來得更技巧,並將所有細節表現得淋漓盡致,以一種健康的、經過琢磨的、平衡的、低調的、優雅的、不費力的薄透自然的美感來吸引眾人的目光。

整個妝容只以唇部做為唯一的焦點,使用展現女性魅力的經典顏色(紅、粉紅、玫瑰色而非前衛的橘紅、紫紅) ,以一種明顯但簡單純粹的方式看出風格的所在。這些妝容最終帶有一種讓它們超越彩妝趨勢的世故,反而成為一種新型態的現代經典。

Hone-Structure

(趨勢重點-琢磨骨架)

“We’ve turned the light around this season – it’s now less about highlights and more about the depth of a contour, a shaded face that is slightly hollow and haunted but extremely beautiful and not alien.” – Andrew Gallimore, Key Artist AW12 Fashion Week.

·

“To put in bone structure is a very knowing art form and the real mastery of being a makeup artist.”  – Terry Barber, Director of Makeup Artistry.

探討臉部的構造與輪廓,在美容界並不是一個全新的概念,然而 2012 秋冬,雕刻立體感的概念將朝越來越理智的方向繼續前進。骨架已經從上季的超級打光推進到考慮如何用陰影為臉部增加深邃感的層次,現在要少打光,多點輪廓的深度。要打造有一點點凹陷,卻又是細膩準確的修容,舉例來說,請想像一個女人拍了一張黑白照,當臉上的明暗非常清楚時,你就會看到非常一氣呵成的輪廓。這個彩妝趨勢絕對是打光與輪廓的正確配置,我們要女孩們看起來美麗、乾淨、清新但輪廓絕對要鮮明,重視質感與線條而非只是顏色的陰暗。如何凸顯骨架是一種非常精明的藝術形式,也成為彩妝師必備的真正優勢。

Arti-Tech

(趨勢重點-人工藝術)

“This season isn’t about liner being classic. It’s about an etching, about it creating a geometry on the face.” – Gordon Espinet, M∙A∙C Vice President of Makeup Artistry. While these lines are fragmented in their structure, by respecting the architecture of the eye shape, they tailor and enhance the face.

The key reference points: Oriental precision (indeed, fashion’s collective eye seems trained on the East) and equestrian elegance – refined, original and intriguing, the new updated liner is “all about a trick of the eye that is very artistic. It’s about taking a classic gesture and reworking it into something non-conformist.”

黑色眼線在每個年代都有特殊的代表作,例如20 年代的青春少女、40 年代的性感小野貓、50 年代的尾翼眼線、60 年代的電影造型、70 年代的龐克、80 年代的新浪潮…,2012秋冬打散重組每個年代的經典畫法,以一種不墨守成規的手法,詮釋當代幾何主義的黑色眼線。尊重眼型的構造,量身打造並畫出凸顯自我特色的幾何圖,而非同一種架構套在每個人身上。

結構中是一段一段的,這是一種玩弄極致藝術的眼妝技巧,是要採取古典的姿態,卻又把它重新做成某種不循規蹈矩的東西,讓彩妝呈現更硬,不那麼直接,是很圖像式的黑色眼妝。
