Beauty Breakdown; Orphan Black and Clarins

 

Actress Tatiana Maslany plays Alison Hendrix in Orphan Black. The character is a slightly wound up soccer Mom destined to take over suburbia. The make-up is by Stephen Lynch. The approach is a heavy look but the colours and skin carry off well.

 

Clarins

These products are used for the base of the look. Both as a skincare routine and for the makeup foundation.

As professional make-up artists, we all went screaming into the corner when HD was introduced. But you know, in a professional manner.

Clarins HD make-up and concealers carry off beautifully in pixels that are becoming more intense all the time.

For a corporate look and a high end look, Clarins meets those demands. Make-up artist Stephen Lynch uses these products beautifully. Especially when social media and websites demand even picture perfect standards for corporate and creative professionals. These products really do kick the “putting your best face forward” approach up a whole new level.

The lips are also finished using a Clarins product. Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in Raspberry is the product used for the actress.

 

Eyes

The look for the eyes uses the M.A.C. eye shadows in frosts and creams.   A neutral colour in Seedy Pearl for contouring and under the eyebrow. The main colours are violet and blackberry on the outer corner of the eyes.

The eyes are finished with Maybelline Great Lash Mascara.
