PARIS — For the Anthony Vaccarello show, makeup artist Tom Pecheux gleaned inspiration from the designer’s fall 2013 collection, which he called “feminine” yet with “a toughness,” thanks in part to some metallic details.
“I would say there is definitely an inspiration of the Nineties,” said Pecheux, who was working for Estée Lauder.
For models’ mouths, he opted for Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Plum Couture that was overlayed with Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Hot Lava for a metallic luster. That was then dusted with Lucidity Translucent Loose Powder in Transparent for a dry shine.
Meanwhile, skin was made matte and polished, and peepers given a taupe-burgundy hue.
“It’s very soft, very gentle,” said Pecheux.
Elsewhere in the room, stylists were twisting models’ tresses into tousled buns.
“It’s the kind of hair which is the day after the night before,” said hairstylist Anthony Turner. “Maybe at some point this messy little knot was actually quite neat, but she went on a bit of an adventure.”
Turner, who was working with L’Oréal Professionnel, explained the look feels “quite young” and “sexy.” For it, he used the brand’s Snow Mousse, Tecni Art Volume Architect, Texture Expert Fresh Dust and Infinium.
