We all know red lips is hot hot hot this season and at the backstage of Focus Fashion Chicago 2008’s Allure of Couture show, lead makeup artist Alex Sanchez from Lancome takes the look to a whole new level and gives us the 411 on how to nail it.
For Gen Art’s Fresh Faces in Fashion at Fashion Focus Chicago 2008, Lancôme’s national makeup artist Alex Sanchez created a street chic look for the young and hip models.
Granite colors were smudged around the eyes to create a city vibe, brows filled in with pencil for a strong look, mascara and false lashes applied for thick lashes and lips painted in nude colors.

With the kick-off of Fashion Focus Chicago 2008, the official makeup sponsor of the fashion week, Lancome, has launched a special makeup collection called the Fashion Focus Backstage Beauty Collection.
Inspired by the unique sense of style of Chicago women and the city’s beautiful architecture, the collection was hand-picked by Lancome’s national makeup artist Alex Sanchez. It features a gorgeous range of chic neutrals that are not only perfect for fall but would look great on women of all skin tones.
