“The two most important words in beauty are ‘Why not?’” says makeup artist Dick Page backstage at Zadig & Voltaire. Models wore minimal makeup, except for six girls whose eyelids were covered with paintlike splotches. “The colour interventions appear as accents throughout the show,” he says. “The same way you’d accessorize an outfit with something bright.” At Versus Versace, Lucia Pieroni used lipsticks to paint geometric blocks on models’ eyes, while at Maison Margiela, Pat McGrath created dozens of colour-blocked makeup combinations. At Oscar de la Renta, Tom Pecheux created a multicoloured eye, citing happiness as the inspiration.
