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.

This intense pop of color is striking against perfectly matte skin, pale and translucent.” said Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.

At Alexander Wang Fall 2013, NARS Cosmetics created an “almost hooded… matte look, with a gradation of grey color brushed up into brows” while CND created a time worn sand stone manicure on an androgynous length providing an urban vibe.
“Monochromatic chic with a little edge and rawness. A Tim Burton girl – big, simple, sparkling eyes and amazing bold lips that look as though they were stamped on.” – Lucia Personi
