Runway Beauty: Derek Lam S/S 2014

At Derek Lam S/S 2014, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux created three different eye looks on the models. “It opens with a minimal look that enhances each model’s natural beauty, followed by an added unique edge, and closes with a sexy summer look. The skin is a creamy natural base with a gradually golden eyeshadow and a satin nude lip. The eyes transform with the addition of a navy cube added to the corners along with navy liner under the eye and mascara on the upper lashes, “explained Pecheux.
