Taking inspiration from Bebe’s glamorous collaborator, Kim Kardashian, backstage beauty for Bebe and Kardashian’s winter 2010-11 showing was soft and feminine, with a smoldering smoky eye. Nathalie Bechard, lead makeup artist for the Sephora Pro Beauty Team, created a “perfected, satin” complexion with Fresh Twilight Facefresh Glow, Dior Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup SPF 10 and YSL Touche Éclat for a bit of rosy contour.
Eyes were defined with Make Up Forever Aqua Liner in Star Black and given a gun metal-hued “evolved smokiness” with Make Up Forever Diamond Powder and a shimmering silver shade from the Sephora Collection Colorful Artist Palette.
“The inspiration is a working girl who works hard and parties even harder,” said Bechard. Lips were left almost bare, lined in Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Candid Candy and filled in with Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in Mmmm…
Hair was also soft and glamorous and touchable.
“Kim is the inspiration,” said Whitney Blischke for Tigi. “It’s effortlessly beautiful.” Blischke described the look as a “soft curl” without any emphasis on volume. “This is a look every girl can wear and look glamorous for a night out or just for a regular day,” said Blischke, who used Dry Shampoo for body and texture and Catwalk Spritz & Shine for finishing.
