Get the Look: Rumer Willis for Badgley Mishka

Fiona StilesComment




It was a beautiful day in Paradise Cove, Malibu at the end of last year when we shot the campaign.  One of those incredibly warm Southern California winter days that makes you shake your head in disbelief, especially in a year like this when most of the country has been dealing with snow storm after snow storm.  It was a perfect day for a shoot at the beach, with warm salty air and pretty dresses.

Rumer has beautiful, creamy pale skin that is absolutely flawless. Truly stunning skin.  I tend not to use much foundation on her, just enough to add a little dewiness.  Using the Beauty Blender to apply foundation assures you don't apply too much and it gives a beautiful finish, I can't work without it.  I add a touch of shading to make her cheekbones pop and a little powder highlighter on the ridges of the cheekbones to add life and light to the skin, making it radiant and luminescent.

For the eyes, I like to play with depth and dimension.  A neutral taupe shadow along the lash lines and in the socket doesn't look like makeup, it just makes the eyes look dynamic and clear.  Black liner pushed generously into the top lashes make the lashes look thicker and longer, as does a healthy dose of mascara on top and bottom.  It opens the eyes up like nothing else.

A warm pinky nude lip makes the look feel finished without looking lipsticky, a perfect compliment to a fresh, radiant face.
