Graphic Eye at Anthony Vaccarello A/W ’14

At Anthony Vaccarello A/W ’14, the look was all about a graphic eye in shades of red and black. “Anthony’s collection is graphic and modern, edged with accents of color. I created a makeup look in the style of graphic fashion illustrations with ultrafine lines of black and red to accent the eye. The look is sophisticated and arty cool.” explained lead artist Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.

To create the eye look, Tom Pecheux dipped dental floss in Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Envious and Double Wear Zero-Smudge Liquid Eyeliner in Black then drew lines on models’ lids and under their eyes. No mascara was used – instead, lashes were curled and Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil in Onyx was dotted between them. Brows were defined with Double Wear Stay-In-Place Brow Lift Duo.

The rest of the face was kept bare with Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10 and Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer SPF 10, set with Perfecting Loose Powder. Tom finished the look by dabbing Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick Rebellious Rose Lipstick in the center then everywhere else with Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude.

Keeping up with the graphic element, Christina used Pure Color Envy Nail Lacquer in Red Ego on the outer curve of models’ nails.
