PARIS — Makeup artist Tom Pecheux said he drew inspiration for the beauty look at Isabel Marant from the quintessential French woman as viewed by people around the world.
Working for Estée Lauder, he applied foundation and concealer to models’ faces, made their eyebrows a bit bushy and brushed eyelids with a beige shadow to give a “flat” aspect. Peepers got a thin silver metallic eyeliner “just to bring sparkle and to catch light,” explained Pecheux, adding he used a nude-color lipstick on mouths and then a darker nude hue in their center for volume.
Hairstylist Paul Hanlon blow-dried models’ tresses with Frédéric Fekkai Full Volume Mousse “to give it a nice quality,” he said.
Hair was set with tongs for “a very soft movement,” continued Hanlon. “It’s really like a young Carla Bruni, like a Jane Birkin.”
