The goth berry stained lips at Bellavance’s NYFW show echoed the designer’s modern aesthetic and gave us a serious craving for matte rouge.

Jason Wu’s color collection for Lancome one of the year’s hotly anticipated launches and the beauty look of his F/W13 show gave a taste of what to expect. As Wu’s collections have grown more confident and sexy, so has the makeup. The dramatic deep purple eyes courtesy of Diane Kendall, werenwonderfully high maintenance. This season has been dominated by bare faces on the runway and while minimalist makeup is very on trend, there is something so glamorous about a winged smoky eye. Cat eyes have become something of a Wu signature, but the electric indigo and violet make this look incredible. The sleek hair by Odiele Gilbert (for Kérastase) was another high-point, who knew a chignon with silver barettes could look so chic.
HELMUT LANG F/W 13 BEAUTY
Who doesn’t love a bold brow?! Backstage at Helmut Lang the team at NARS led by Hannah Murray created a look that was all about fresh skin, big brows and natural beauty. It took a variety of NARS goodies to create the look, but ultimately the focus was on letting the girls shine through.
To quote Hannah backstage “This look is all about creamy, polished, gorgeous skin, with the strength coming from the eyebrows. The girls with dark hair have bold brows, while the blonde girls have muted ones. It’s monochromatic, but I wanted the girls to feel real and beautiful.”

The final hair & makeup look here at Derek Lam’s F/W 2013 show on Liu Wen. Backstage Estee Lauder makeup artist, Tom Pecheux said he wanted to go for something minimal yet bohemian to match the spirit of the clothes.
“The beauty look Derek Lam and I created for the Fall 2013 show is a sophisticated, minimal urban hippie – playing off of Derek’s inspirational mood board and the textures and colors of the fabrics in his collection. The focus is on the eyes and the lips. I placed a highlight of metallic shimmer in the center of the eyelid, to make it appear very flat, like a two-dimensional painting on a canvas. The saturated stain on the lips is very strong and intense – a mix of brown, maroon and burgundy. The skin is very fresh and iridescent, a satin-matte texture,” said Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director, who used Estée Lauder makeup to complement Derek Lam’s stunning collection.
To create the waves in models hair Orlando Pita and his team braided each girls hair and then went over it with a T3 flatiron to set the wave.
