BEAUTY TALK: Backstage at N°21 S/S 2016 Fashion Show
Tom Pecheux is the MAC Cosmetics key artist at this N°21 backstage for Spring Summer 2016 collection.
He thought about an imaginary creature, lost somewhere in a timeless space. This woman translates a sweet, romantic look in a contemporary way. Therefore, the beauty look mixes up grunge elements with glam ones in order to create a sort of fairy look with a rock mood.
Of course, the base make-up is totally flawless yet extremely natural, thanks to these new-generation foundations that provide a perfect skin look, still remaining weightless and transparent. After the application you can still see real skin. Then there are natural, rosy cheeks in a creamy cool pink shade, from the new Trend Forecast Lip Palette (available soon).
On the eyes you can see the grunge element comes out thanks to a new chubby eye pencil in a purple shade, used as eyeliner and then smudged to create a smokey effect. This product is still a prototype, as many others seen during these backstages, so we don’t know when it will be launched, how it will be called or even if it will be effectively launched for sure.
After that, Tom Pecheux blended a cream lavender eyeshadow to enhance the messy look. Then the glam element: little dots of lavender glitters all around the eye in order to create a dreamly, almost teary look. As a final touch, tons of black mascara for super dramatic lashes.
Lips are kept natural and warm toned, contrasting with the cool toned eye look. It has been chosen a matte peachy shade so the warm hues make a softer general look.
To complete this Disney princess (who is just returned from a wild night out) look, hair styling is a key element: the hair stylist Paul Hanlon created these long waves, extremely soft and natural, topped by a headband which, just like a tiara, wraps the hair with tons of rhinestones.
Think about Rapunzel who woke up in her make-up (Courtney Love docet).
