TREND COLOUR WASH R AI N B O W BR I T E
Amplify your makeup bag and apply colour with reckless abandon.
At Derek Lam in New York, lipstick strayed (purposefully) from the lips. Bored by the minimal look that resulted from the makeup test done before the show, makeup artist Tom Pecheux got creative by smudging a violet-hued lipstick over the models’ eyelids (which were already coated in chocolate-coloured eyeliner), diffused the shade above the crease and then pressed melon-hued lipstick onto the cheeks. The overall effect? “It’s a twisted colour,” he told us backstage. Colour was also amplified in Milan. At Moschino, senior makeup artist Dominic Skinner for M.A.C Cosmetics U.K. created an “expensive, luxurious version of Barbie” by focusing on the lips (obvs). The blend of magenta, yellow and white created an “electro-fried hot-pink-salmon colour” that was topped off with a layer of gloss. “It’s almost like synthetic Cellophane,” he said.
