Tom Pécheux creates a sublime look using graphic and intense eye make up on Aurore at ByCalliste.
It’s a seriously intense look that Tom Pecheux demonstrates at ByCalliste !
Aurore has truly amazing eyes, but what Tom has done with them is nothing short of astonishing. He works on Aurore as if a painter on a canvas. Her gaze becomes intense, profound and mysterious…
It’s a graphic effect that is nevertheless natural and above all very easy to recreate. The complicity between Tom and Aurore as they work together is as fluid and natural as the line of her eyebrows.
Thank you dearest Tom and Aurore for this little lesson in eye make up.
Your turn to try!
Tom Pecheux created this graphic look to highlight the magnificent blue eyes of Aurore.
Then Aurore recreated the graphic look herself, following Tom’s expert advice, of course.
In order to prepare her skin, Aurore begins with a skincare product. For a perfectly hydrated skin, she applies a drop of Elixir Face from Butter to her face, then a touch of Daydream Expert Skincare Multi-perfections from Estée Lauder. Tom's advice: avoid applying too much cream as it will make the skin greasy and prevent perfect application and fixation of foundation.
Aurore finally applies a drop of Idealist serum from Estée Lauder which reduces the pores and refines the complexion.
First step: the foundation!
Tom advises Aurore who has not completely returned to her winter complexion to mix her winter and summer foundations to get the perfect color for her skin.
So, she takes a very small amount of each of the two foundation colors, Spectral Foundation from the brand Serge Lutens, and mixes them. You can also do this on the back of your hand.
Then, Aurore applies the foundation to the whole of her face. This texture covers really well, there’s no need to add more. Very little product is enough! The trick is to start with the area of the face where there are the most imperfections and use what remains on the brush on the rest of the face. For Aurore, it is the top of the cheekbones and a few small areas of redness.
Second step, the eyes!
Aurore uses a pencil from the brand Le Sourcil of the closest possible color to her eyebrows in order to make her eyebrows more uniform. It is not a question of transforming the eyebrow but of improving its natural form by filling in the few gaps and slightly extending their outer edge. For Tom, transforming the natural line of her eyebrows could change Aurore's face completely.
Aurore will now start the "graphic" makeup of her eyes. Using an eyeliner brush, she takes a little Eyeliner Gel Intenza black from L'Oréal Paris and paints the root of her upper lashes starting from the middle of her eye and drawing a straight line to the outer corner of the eye. As a result, this line will start very thin and thicken towards the outer corner of the eye. No worries, this line can be less than perfect because Aurore will fade it afterwards. However, it is possible to correct it if there’s a major slip, with a cotton bud, our best friend! As Tom rightly says, perfection is so boring!
Aurore will then draw a line on the underside of the eye following the same tips as for the upper part of the eye. She starts from the middle of the eye drawing a straight line from the root of the lower lashes towards the outer corner of her eye. Then, she fills the small space created between the two lines with the same Gel Intenza black from L'Oréal Paris.
In order to make this eye makeup less austere and give it a little roundness and softness, Tom advises Aurore to take a wider and softer brush to use the Smokissime Super Liner from L'Oréal Paris which is a Powder texture that’s very easy to blend. Tom advises her to put some powder on the back of her hand in order to use it as a palette. She then applies this to the previously drawn eyeliner and creates a slight halo effect blurring, on, and around this line. The idea is to break up the line and give it a softer appearance. Depending on the shape of your eyes, adjust this halo making it more or less high on the eyelid in order to get an overall effect of a horizontal line that will give us this graphic look. You can also lighten it with a cotton bud if you find the result too strong.
Aurore can now turn to the black mascara, this one is High Naughty Lash from Mac, which she applies to all of her upper lashes and especially at the outer corner. For the lower lashes, she just applies it to the outer corner.
Third step, the lips!
Aurore applies a lip pencil to her lips, the Lipliner by Dolce & Gabbana n° 8, a very pretty pinkish beige that does not require a liner. Very easy !
Finally, Tom Pecheux advises her to apply a little Homéoplasmine cream to her lips to give them a natural, moisturized appearance.
