At Lane Crawford, we celebrate Vogue Fashion’s Night Out this year with renowned celebrity makeup artist, Tony Li and an exhibition of his latest book. With a career spanning over 25 years, Tony is considered a pioneer and leader in the beauty industry working with international designers, photographers and models.
The success of his first beauty book Powder & Brush has led to the sequel Powder & Brush II – a powerful collaboration with leading photographers including Chen Man, capturing his take on style and beauty. Tony Li shares his insights on beauty and must-have products
Lane Crawford: Where does your inspiration come from?
Tony Li: Everything in my life is my inspiration. I seldom do preparation before working on a look. I always find inspiration when I’m in my most relaxed state.
LC: What is your philosophy on beauty?
TL: Sexy is the key fundamental when it comes to beauty.
LC: Which is your favourite look in Powder & Brush II and why?
TL: I love every look in the book, but if I had to pick one, I would choose the shot of the red lashes. I love beautiful faces, but I love faces with rich textures even more.
Keeping skin healthy and young is the best way to look good. A good painting needs a clean canvas.
Mascara is a must. And don’t forget to shape your eyebrows, it will give the total look a final touch.
Blush is a good way to emphasise your face shape and enhance your complexion.
In everyday life, women can put more focus on lipstick. Lipstick is the best way to do a makeover.
Red nails are sexy, vampy and classic at the same time.
I favour fragrances that are fresh yet warm. Look for scents like L’Eau d’Issey that blends floral with woody tones.
