Strong Eyes with Rosy Nude Lips at Derek Lam A/W ’14

At Derek Lam A/W ’14, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux paired a strong eye in shades of green and gray with a rosy nude lip. “Derek’s collection is strong, urban, ethnic-inspired with an emphasis on texture. The makeup look is strong, yet fluid, with pools of gray and green surrounding the eye. I was inspired by water, a lagoon, deep and cool.” said Tom.
