PARIS — The color cosmetics look at Anthony Vaccarello took a cue from the designer’s fashion collection, some of which had a shimmery effect. It reminded makeup artist Tom Pecheux, who was working for Estée Lauder, of the sun reflecting off a swimming pool.
To wit: He lined models’ eyelids with a turquoise-colored pencil and then applied a bronze eye shadow.
“That is creating the reflection of the light,” said Pecheux, who also added a touch of gloss on lids right before the show began. He employed mascara in black and brown on models’ lashes, and a warm blush on their cheeks. Lips were given a nude hue, and the skin a satin finish.
For the coif, the inspiration came from French girls.
“It’s not as grungy as London, but it’s not as overdone as Milan,” said hairstylist Anthony Turner. “It’s almost the type of hair that is very much the day after the night before.”
