A punk futuristic look that stayed within Alexander McQueen’s vision was Pat McGrath’stake on this season’s makeup for the British house. Black hand-cut feathers and dusty golden/olivehues resulted in a dramatic look that in the same time managed to give out a romantic, sensitive aura.
A true artist can draw inspiration from each and every thing and in the case of Tom Peuchex, this would be his dentist’s chair. Driven by the floss and its usage, the makeup artist did not hesitate to use it in order to create sharp, straight lines onto the models’ lids, mixing red lines with dark black ones, creating a graphic, rock n’ roll makeup that got us seriously into it.
There could be no better match for the brand’s fresh and easy-going aesthetic rather than the pure definition of the “effortless cool” makeup.With violet being the dominant hue, this alternative version of smokey eyeswas not meant to captivate our attention the hard way, but aimed to look ethereal and utterly feminine, just like a luxurious chiffon dress would.
In case you were looking for the that fragile, classic Dior beauty, this is the wrong place for you. Far away from the house’s rituals, Pat McGrath’s creations were all abouturban, street looks. Striking blue and mild earthy hues were used to create a graphic, glossy shape on the eyes matched with layers of mascara in the same colour. A drizzle of glitter was the final touch that gave the models’ eyes that impressive mirror effect, resulting in a total up-to-date look of today’s strong willing woman that happens to be fashion forward too.
A multi coloured supermarket full of Chanel products had to be matched with a similar makeup. Keeping that in mind, the models moved around with a pop look that featured silver-toned eyelidswith a neon pink, orange, green or turquoise flicks at the corner of their eyes.
Driven by AlberElbaz’s love for darkness, the makeup pro Pat McGrath managed to create a total dark look that still gave us the impression of a light, feathery feeling. The smudged black shadow onto the models’ lids seemed slightly deconstructed towards the outer line, giving a whole new take to the classic smoky effect.
