At New York Fashion Week, Hanley creative director Nicole Hanley Mellon presented a collection inspired by her travels to Cuba before it opened up. If you follow the news, you know Cuba is smokin’ hot right now. Even Pope Francis stopped in Cuba on his way to the U.S. So I asked Vincent Longo, lead makeup artist for the show, to tell me all abut the makeup look he created.

Longo, creative director of the in-home beauty company StyleBookings, said he wanted to show how a visitor would translate the way Cuban women do their makeup into a look appropriate for her. The look was very sunkissed and glowing, he told me. It was meant to be very sensual.

To give the models a healthy. bronzed glow, Longo mixed Chantecaille Liquid Lumiere highlighter in Brilliance with Chantecaille Future Skin gel foundation. “Mixing the highlighter with the foundation gives the skin a beautiful sheen,” Longo said. He also mentioned he is currently using the technique on a photo shoot and it looks great!

For additional sex appeal, Longo added individual faux lashes along the lash line, and swiped on a few coats of black mascara. Le Chrome Luxe Eye Duo in Monte Carlo added a smoldering touch.

I am dying to visit Cuba. I also plan to try and recreate this look. Think you’ll give it a go? It should not be too hard to copy.
