Fashion Week Australia Spring/Summer 2013-2014 officially kicked off today! And at Camilla and Marc, the collection was layered, vivid, textural, opulent and inspired by the Russian Matryoshka doll. “We went with something a little more progressive for Camilla and Marc. We’ve lightened the brows on the girls with foundation for a modern effect. It’s all very creamy and nude! I feel like the brows have injected freshness into a typically very classic beauty look. The skin is very clean, with an understated contour and a simple nude lip.” explained Napoleon Perdis, lead makeup artist for the show.
Using NARS Cosmetics, makeup artist Val Garland created an eye look at Roland Mouret A/W 2013 with a gorgeous side profile shape. “The eyelid is traced with black and clean in the middle, but not too perfect – there’s a greyness to keep it modern. It is literally the way a girl would wear her makeup now to go out, with the lip color dabbed on but not perfectly applied – it’s cooler that way.” said Val.
For the third season, Estée Lauder sponsored the beauty look at the Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 show. “Anthony’s collection is bold, graphic, a strong statement in black and white. I created a monochromatic makeup look with a strong focus on lips, using deep burgundy, and repeated it on lids for moody eyes. This intense pop of color is striking against perfectly matte skin, pale and translucent.” said Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.
At Creatures of the Wind A/W 2013, NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer created a makeup look that complements the collection by adding a new element. “You see the pearl on their cheeks, and an angular line that almost makes the look hard and not so feminine, like a Teddy girl in the UK after World War II. I also wanted to balance Chris and Shane’s inspiration of artificiality, and candy, by creating a look that had a combination of matte and pearl but no real sense of contour, depth or color.” said James.
At Jean Pierre Braganza A/W 2013, MAC Cosmetics makeup artist Terry Barber created a “gothic but gorgeous” look with dramatic eyes and nude lips.
