Receiving lots of attention, oooh's and ahhhh's at NYFW is the makeup look created for Costello Tagliapietra Fall RTW 2010. Easy to see why!
Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra gave the backstage beauty department a clear vision of what they wanted to bring out their collection: Coutney Love with a 70's vibe and a tad bit of Japanese influence (inspired by a trip to Japan the designers took recently).
Makeup artist Lisa Butler for MAC contrasted the beige and plum colors of the designers' clothing collection with a strong tomatoe-y red lip. Butler created a unique shade by blending MAC Russian Red lipstick with MAC Luna Cream Colour Base. Skin was left pale, fresh and clean, to give focus to the lips. Brows were left au naturel and were combed upward for an animalistic feel.
The asian influence was apparent in the hair. Stylist Nelson Vercher created an airy updo with lots of wispy volume, finished with a high knot. "It was all about a girl traveling from Russia to Asia but with some form of togetherness-she went on that journey but still came out looking lovely," explained Vercher. "There's a Geisha influence but it's not too literal-it's modern and young, but still elegant."
(L-R) Vena Cava, Richard Chai Love, L.A.M.B., Prabal Gurung
Other collections rocking a fab carrot, tomato red included Vena Cava, Richard Chai Love, L.A.M.B., Prabal Gurung and sure there will be more. Contrastly, many designers showed collections with makeup-less beauty looks. Another color showing all over faces of the runway? Shades or purple - no surprise there, right ladies.
