Bright blue eyes and glowing orange cheeks were the order of the day at Nanette Lepore’s spring show Wednesday.
“Nanette wanted a childlike innocence,” said makeup artist Polly Osmond, who worked on behalf of MAC Cosmetics. “As I was thinking about the makeup, I saw on her board this thank you card that had a drawing of a Bibalike model, but it was done in a childlike way. She had blue eye shadow on and orange cheeks and orange lips.”
Osmond recreated the look by applying MAC’s turquoise-colored Sea Powerpoint Eyeliner inside and under the eyes, including the outer corner and inner corner. “I didn’t do it so perfectly,” she said. “I wanted it to look like a child had gotten a crayon.”
Orange cheeks and lips were dabbed on using MAC’s Gingerly Blush and Morange Lipstick for a fresh look that wasn’t “too old or glamorous.”
Hairstylist Esther Langham took an easy-breezy tack, creating a soft updo.
“We wanted something that was loose and easy and light to go with the clothes, which are really colorful and summery,” said Langham. “We wanted the hair up so we could keep the neckline clean.” Langham dirtied the hair up using Kiehls’ Thickening Spray, before pulling hair back into a loose ponytail. She then split the ponytail in two, lightly backcombing the sections, before wrapping the sections around each other and pinning it up in a bun.
