Backstage with Estee Lauder

Charting a unique course at this year’s New York Fashion Week, Tom Pecheux made a memorable debut for Estée Lauder creating a vivid look for Derek Lam’s autumn / winter 2010 collection.

While other designers chose the “no makeup look” this season, Pecheuz opted for shimmering copper lips paired with bold blue eyes. Matte skin, bare cheeks and neutral nails illuminated the 70s-feeling, sun-kissed look.

Here are the Estée Lauder products the makeup pros used to get the look:

Eyes: A new shadow that was tested backstage (shades will launch this fall); Double Wear Stay-in-Place eye pencil in Midnight Blue; TurboLash All Effects Motion mascara in black.


Lips: Pure Color Crystal lipstick in Crystal Beige


Cheeks: Bare 


Skin: Double Wear Light foundation


Summer looks

1. ROSY GLOW

Think just-got-out-of-bed fresh with flushed cheeks.

Make-up novice: Enhance eyes with a shimmering neutral shadow and black mascara. Add colour to cheeks and lips with sheer tones of pink to rose. Use your fingers to blot on a coloured lip balm or try a gloss for fuller-looking lips. Use a powder blush for cheeks.

Make-up maven: Use pink powder shadow on eyelids, followed with brown or black gel liner on the upper lashline. Blend cream blush on cheeks. Dust pink highlighter onto cheekbones. Outline and fill in lips with pink liner and gloss.

2. SANDWASHED

A nude look that’s breezy and sophisticated.

Make-up novice: Brush on black mascara. To give cheekbones a lift and keep your skin from looking flat, dust a warm pink or apricot blush on the apples of your cheeks. Take the natural colour of your lips up a notch with creamy lipstick in sandy pink, nude or peach.   

Make-up maven: For a summer take on the smoky eye, sweep brown shadow from lashline to crease. Line eyes with mahogany brown shadow. Apply black mascara. Dust on blush. Finish with lipstick and a dab of gloss.

3. BRIGHTS

Splashes of colour brighten your look.

Make-up novice: Choose shadows that have a neutral base with a hint of pigment, such as shell pink or gold. It’s best to wear colour on just one part of your face, so stick to nude shades on cheeks and lips. Don’t go more than one tone lighter than your own lips.

Make-up maven: Try shades of pale green, blue or lavender shadow dusted from lashline to crease. Line eyes with a liquid liner that’s the same tone as the shadow, but deeper and more intense. Balance is key, so keep cheeks and lips neutral.
