When I did my internship in New York last summer, I had the chance to assist at a fitting with Liv Tyler. I literally was introduced to her, and even saw her again two times after that first meeting. The ultimate kilig part? She actually remembered me and initiated the “hello” when I ran into her at the Stella (McCartney) shop. Anyway, I’ve talked about this tons of times with my friends (shamelessly!) so I won’t ramble on, but I do have to say/add that although I saw several actors while I was there, it was just so fitting that she was the one that I met properly. I’m not the type of person who goes crazy over celebrities—I rarely ever know the names of actors (aside from the big, mainstream ones) and I don’t often make the effort to follow Hollywood news or an actor’s career… but Liv Tyler is one personality who has always fascinated me, mostly because she’s the daughter of a rockstar and always seemed to have such a soft, shy, and almost insecure but also edgy aura about her. I guess delicate with an edge? I don’t know. Anyway, in person, she was just as lovely but complex as I had imagined she might seem—I say “seem” still since I obviously cannot know her from several encounters, but really, it was just so perfect for me to have met her.
Anyway (for the third time), the real point of this post is to share these amazing photos from Marie Claire UK with you:
Lisa Eldridge did Liv’s make-up in these photos (by Marc Hom) and Lisa is possibly my favourite internet make-up guru. The photos are a marriage of these two amazing people and I cannot get over how amazing the colored shot is most especially. Lisa also did Emma Watson’s make-up for that Elle November cover last year—the one where she has these fantastically thick, chunky lashes on both the upper and lower lashes. If you have a tumblr, you’ve probably seen these going around. But back to this set: it is just a perfect example of subtle but expertly done make-up. Liv (who was wearing not a single bit of make-up when I met her) doesn’t need much, so it would be a shame to overdo her, and it is also a tendency for MUAs to go crazy with her gorgeous lips. Here Lisa focused on her eyes and brought out that wonderful blue! The lips are understated but still full looking. And though there isn’t color in the second set, you can see the lovely shading there. I love it.
Ahhh, Liv and Lisa! ♥
