BACKSTAGE BEAUTY: Spring 2009 RTW - YSL's Fellini Eyes & French Twists

Makeup inspiration for Yves Saint Laurent's Spring 2009 RTW collection? How about Federico Feillini's movie 8 1/2. Fellini's 1963 movie helped to inspire Makeup Artist Tom Pecheux. "I didn't take it as a reference. It's more of a twist, and Yves Saint Laurent makeup with a twist," said Pecheux.

Well, the eyes certainly had it! Eyeliner was streched outward and upward and topped with a row of false eyelashes. Using YSL Matte Touch Foundation and Perfect Touch, Pecheux created a matte base, which was topped with Poudre Sur Measure. Using hues from the Palette Collection, he added a hint of blush and contoured cheekbones slightly.

Hairstylist Julien d'Ys created a dual-toned updo for the show. This is one of my favorite hairstyles of the season's shows - I just love this! He added hair extensions, which were specially dyed in Crayola-bright hues to match the outfits models wore on the runway. The back-bombed styles were inspried by french actresses Simone Signoret and Jeanne Moreau.
