We’ve al­ways been big fans of lip­stick, oddly enough. We love the ca­su­al­ness of beau­ti­ful fresh skin on a pretty girl. Then, when she wants to dress it up, she puts on a lit­tle lip­stick, which adds a bit of punch to the face. We pre­fer that to a smokey eye. Your own beauty sta­ples? LH: [ Laughs] I would say a lit­tle Vi­sine and some Chap­Stick. Where did the idea for that come from? LH: We’ve done a lot of jew­ellery in the past. For Spring/ Sum­mer ’10 we did this an­odised, dised, rain­bow, oil slick-y fin­ish. It’s metal, etal, but we used this heat process that cre­ates tes a strange kind of rain­bow ef­fect. That was the start­ing point. It’s a re­ally beau­ti­ful strong ng colour but there’s a metal­lic qual­ity to it. It just felt very rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the brand. Tell us more about the sun­burned flush and sat­u­rated sun­set colours. LH: There’s a beach­i­ness to the whole collection – a sum­mery qual­ity with those faded neon kind of colours. There’s a “surfi­ness” to the beauty, and a nat­u­ral­ness in terms of colour. Be­cause it is make-up, though, we wanted to up the ante and do some­thing a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent than what we do for the shows. But we didn’t want it to be too vixen-y or vampy. It’s cooler; there’s a breezi­ness, a non­cha­lance. JM: The way we see these prod­ucts be­ing used is more in­di­vid­u­ally. Maybe she’s wear­ing noth­ing, but throws on a lip­stick in a bright hue. Or maybe she’s got no make-up on and just has a cool nail colour, or a lit­tle bit of eye­liner and noth­ing else. We like the idea of one make-up el­e­ment thrown in, but there’s still a nat­u­ral­ness to the girl. So, the Proenza Schouler girl is re­ally based on an ac­tual girl? JM: It starts out more like Lazaro was as say­ing, with an at­ti­tude. It’s less like, “We love this prod­uct, we love that prod­uct,” and more, “What’s the vibe e of the girl, what’s the at­ti­tude? Is her skin a lit­tle glossy? Is she su­per matt? Is it pale or sun-kissed?” And then Diane e starts play­ing with var­i­ous prod­ucts to fit what that con­cept may be. A sin­gle make-up el­e­ment you have al­ways loved on women?
