Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Beauty Bazaar -

ries was think­ing of the kind of girl who goes to Burning Man,” de­scribes Peter Philips, the make-up ex­traor­di­naire who has con­sis­tently brought us the most iconic beauty looks of the run­way. Sea­son af­ter sea­son, his work is es­pe­cially breath­tak­ing when he teams up with long-time good friend and fash­ion designer Dries Van Noten.

This sea­son is an­other tri­umph. Van Noten trans­lates lit­er­a­ture and art into fash­ion that fes­ti­val girls would love. Ref­er­enc­ing A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream, Burning Man, and Rain­bow Gath­er­ings, nymph-like de­signs float down a run­way lit in a star­dust-like fil­ter, with mod­els rest­ing upon mossy car­peted floors as though in slum­ber for an el­e­gant, lan­guid de­noue­ment. But the story will not be com­plete with­out ethe­real make-up. “She’s not a hip­pie, but she loves na­ture – and she’s also a bit high-tech,” says Philips. He draws a del­i­cate gold ring on the lower lips of the mod­els, leav­ing the rest of the face fresh and bare. “It could be tribal, in a Maori sense; it could be a pierc­ing,” he adds. “It could even look like the shine from a lip gloss.”


“This ia per­fect make-up for girls at gigs,” agrees make-up artist Lu­cia Pica. And this mood for love and cel­e­bra­tion, free par­ties and pumped-up raves, con­tin­ues through the run­way. Skin is kept ra­di­ant and dewy, and un­ex­pected colours and ef­fects find their way in the most cre­ative man­ner onto the face in­stead of the hair.

At Mar­ques Almeida, “washes of sun-bleached pas­tels” flash like slits of sun­light across the faces of mod­els. “She’s post-fes­ti­val – slightly sun­burned with a touch of hay fever,” says MAC make-up artist Terry Bar­ber. His tip to make this look work: “Any­thing in­volv­ing colour only looks mod­ern when you take away the skin cov­er­age.”

“Young, fresh, in­no­cent,” make-up mae­stro Tom Pecheux chimes in, re­fer­ring to the pop-coloured de­cals he pressed upon the tem­ples of An­to­nio Mar­ras’s girls. “They are artsy, play­ful, and cre­ative.”
