Texture inspired both the hair and makeup looks at Derek Lam.


“Derek’s fabrics this season are all about texture,” said Tom Pecheux, who is creative makeup director for Estée Lauder. “This is an elegant, polished look that isn’t too serious and follows that lead.” After moisturizing skin, Pecheux applied Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup all over the face for a matte satin finish. Next, he applied Pure Color Instant Intense EyeShadow Trio in Smoked Chrome in the middle of the eyelid from browbone to lash line, “almost like a ray of light,” he explained, “very shimmery.” He skipped contouring and eyebrows, turning his attention to the lips. “It’s a strong stain, almost as if the girl rubbed beet root on her lips,” he explained. He mixed Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Burnished Bronze, topping it with Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer in Electric Wine on top. To finish, he used a touch of Pure Color Stay-On Shadow in Sinister on the lips to darken the shade.
