Makeup artist Tom Pecheux said the beauty look he conceived for the Anthony Vaccarello catwalk was meant to depict a Parisian woman at the end of a night on the town.

The show marked the official debut of the Estée Lauder brand’s makeup and nail color in a Paris Fashion Week show, as reported.

Pecheux — who is Estée Lauder’s creative makeup director — used a bit of contouring with bronzer to give “that healthy look and very natural skin.” He applied lots of mascara and made models’ eyes have a smoky, black look with a touch of burgundy inside. Lips were kept au naturel.

Right before the show began, Pecheux planned to slightly deconstruct the makeup so it seemed like it “has been sitting there for a couple of hours, and the night was good.”

Among the Estée Lauder products employed were Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil in Onyx, Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Vanilla Truffle and Bronze Goddess Soft Shimmer Bronzer.

Hairstylist Anthony Turner called the coif “powerful, strong, military.” To achieve it, he crafted a low side part and worked gel throughout models’ hair, save for the ends that were tied into low ponytails.

“It’s ultra shiny, ultra glossy, very kind of androgynous, very masculine,” explained Turner, who used L’Oréal Professionnel products, such as Tecni Art Fix Move Gel.
