Makeup artist Lisa Butler, working on behalf of Nars Cosmetics, took an unconventional approach to color at Phillip Lim’s spring show Wednesday afternoon, where she merged rusty-brown hues with shades of lilac, peach and pale olive on the eyes.
“There’s a lot of color going on but everything is cream based and we’re using a big brush to merge it all in so it looks very romantic,” said Butler, who blended Nars’ Camargue Eye Shadow Duo, applying brown on the crease and green on the eyelid, then lining the eyes in lilac. To elongate eyelashes, she used a brush to apply Nars’ Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara to the roots of lashes before continuing to brush throughout.
On the face, Butler took a foundation brush and wiped Nars’ Orgasm Illuminator on the forehead and Luxor Multiple, in a pink Copacabana color, on cheekbones for a highlighting effect. For lips, she brushed on the Luxor Multiple and Nars’ new mauvey-pink Cruisin Lipstick in a messy way.
“It’s quite a lot of makeup,” said Butler. “But you can’t really see how it’s done or where it is.” Hair, done by Odile Gilbert, was both sharp and romantic, taking inspiration from Man Ray muse Lee Miller.
“It’s like a haircut, like a little bob,” said Gilbert. “On one side you have short hair, and on the other side you have a little chignon, which is like a snail.”
Long hair was parted and spritzed with hair spray, before being twisted into a snail shell shape and pinned into a bun. Gilbert also placed two red leather barrettes — created by Lim for the show — in the girls’ hair. One was placed on the top side of the head and the other a little bit lower, above the chignon, “like a little girl,” said Gilbert.
“What he has done at Vuitton is really exceptional,” said @gameofthrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie on @mrkimjones’ final show for @louisvuitton. “He has rebooted luxury in terms of making it commercial, viable and contemporary. And most importantly artistic. He has never compromised his artistic vision for the sake of commodity.” (📷: @zefashioninsider)

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was. But Tsai isn’t just a reality star — she’s an illustrator who has worked with Starbucks Japan and most recently, she’s dipping her toes into the fashion world.
