New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011 Backstage Beauty Breakdown: Marc by Marc Jacobs

I have always loved the idea of pairing black eyeliner with bright orange lips and apparently, Dick Page, Artistic Director of Shiseido, do too. Just look at the gorgeous matte orange lips, rosy cheeks and glossy eyes at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 show. Lovesss!

To create the look, Dick applied Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Day Lily on the lips. He mixed various shades of Luminizing Satin Face Color on the cheeks for a rosy glow and only applied foundation as needed. He also darkened the upper and lower lashlines with Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Black and finished the look with a clear gloss on the eyes.
