Vincent Longo makeup artist Carlo Longo was all about the retro backstage at Carmen Marc Valvo.

“It’s a Twenties glam retro look,” said Longo. “It’s sophisticated and chic but very powerful. Carmen wanted the focus to be on the eyes.”

Longo used a matte black powder eye shadow close to the lashline, then smudged it out with a shimmery smoke shadow. Lashes were plush and thick with several coats of mascara.

Brows were very strong — Longo groomed them and made them two shades darker and a little fuller. Lips were done with a skin tone colored lipgloss and cheeks were left bare.

“It’s a very strong look,” he said, “But it’s also very demure in a way.”
