Recently I was feeling melancholic and I decided to listen to some Lana Del Rey. As it often happens, I spiraled into a search for her style references and I ended up on her magnificent dress for The Fashion Awards 2018, held at the Royal Albert Hall on December 10, 2018 in London, England.
For the celebration, the “Summertime Sadness” singer donned a custom Gucci lurex and silk crêpe gown with peach velvet floral appliqué details, gold and crystal leaf embroideries and a Gucci Cruise 2019 electric blue velvet cape with all-over crystal and sequin stars and trompe l’oeil appliqué details.
The gorgeous ensemble was paired with black Gucci patent leather sandals, a black Gucci Butterfly clutch and a gold ring with a red gem on her right ring finger.
I absolutely love when makeup artists share the products they use on a specific client, more so when they do the makeup of an iconic figure like Lana Del Rey whose eyeliner has been replicated so many times one can’t even count–and you know that Pamela Cochrane deserves all the praise for it.
Would you like to know what Cochrane used for this specific occasion? Here is a little tutorial written directly by the makeup artist just for you readers:
“On Lana‘s eyes I used ‘Skinshow Nude‘ eyeshadow all over with a touch of ‘Ultimate Taupe‘ in the socket and a light sweep underneath.
Lips were lined with ‘Suburbia‘ Permagel ultra lip liner with a soft smudge of Mattetrance lipstick in ‘Fever Dream‘.
For the cheeks we mixed the Nude skin highlighter and duo together then patted it lightly on Lana‘s cheekbones.”
Lana Del Rey presented Alessandro Michele with the Brand of the Year Award.
