New York Fashion Week Spring ’10. Backstage at Nanette Lapore

September 16, 2009 • New York Fashion Week Spring '10



Backstage at Nanette Lepore was reminiscent of spring, with models laced in  bright blues, oranges, and pinks. MAC's key artist Polly Osmond was inspired by a Thank You card.  She said, " a 60's drawing, of girl with big eyes, and she had blue eyeshadow, orange cheeks and lips, a very childlike innocence".

The look was created almost as she refers to a kid with a crayon that has drawn underneath their eyes. A teal-colored Sea Powerpoint Eyeliner lined the inside and under the eyes, including the outer corner and inner corner, with black mascara on the top and bottom. "The makeup is not perfect, nor fussy", she said.

"If they had eyebrows they are being kept natural, if they are very fair, they are just penciled in a little bit" Osmond said. For a very fresh, flushed looked cheeks and lips were dabbed with Gingerly Blush, and Morange Lipstick. MAC Face and Body was used, the emphasis being clean and used only where needed. 


Hairstylist Esther Langham, for Art & Commerce, created what she called day old hair, dirtied it up with Kiehls Thickening Spray . "We want hair that is loose and easy that reflects the collection of bright flirty clothes". Loose ponytails split into two, and lightly backcombing the sections, before wrapping the sections around each other and pinning it up in a bun.
