“Inspired by words… the makeup was a process starting with natural, then mauve, lavender and violet were built on top of nudes.” explained Pecheux. He started by moisturizing skin with organic jojoba oil and added Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer as needed and swept Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder through the center of the face to set and provide a flawless matte finish. Next, he pressed and tapped Go Guava and Must Have Melon Lipsticks from M·A·C Trend Forecast Spring 15/Lip and Cheek (available Fall 2014) into cheeks for a peachy flush and highlighted upper cheekbones with Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish.

He curled the upper lashes and coated them with Haute & Naughty Black Lash Mascara before adding a violet mascara, Tarot (available spring/summer 2015), over them. Next, he smudged Lowlights Fluidline (available Spring/Summer 2015), a brown color, into the upper lash line to deepen and define and pressed M·A·C PRO Violetta lipstick from the lashline to crease and blending it towards the temple. He added a white pencil, Fascinating Eye Kohl, on the waterline to open the eye and finished with Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish over the browbone and inner corner of the eye.

On the lips, Pecheux applied Seasonally Peach and Spring Sensation from M·A·C Trend Forecast Spring 15/Lip and Cheek for a fresh finish.

To complement the makeup, Jin Soon Choi used products from her own and created a “fresh, polished and understated” manicure on the models. She used one coat of JINsoon Nostalgia followed by one coat of JINsoon Muse and finished with JINsoon Top Gloss.
