Narciso Rodriguez is always among my very favorite New York Fashion Week shows. I love, love, love his minimalist aesthetic and architectural influences. The Spring 2010 collection was no different and the makeup look, created by Shiseido‘s Artistic Director Dick Page, complemented the look beautifully.
The models skin for Narciso Rodriguez was left as pure as possible, using very light foundation where needed.
For the eyes, Dick first applied a makeup remover around the eyes with a fluffy brush to give a wet base and slightly glossy effect around the eyes. He then blended two shades of the Luminizing Satin Eye Colors from the Fall 2009 Collection, Squirrel (BR303) and Cavern (BR708). He applied the combination of shadows around the eyes (on top and bottom), right into the lashlines. He then used this color on the lids to create “dirty looking eyes.” No mascara or liner was used.
To create a matte lip, Dick blended two shades from the new Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte line from the Spring 2010 collection. Whisper (RD722) and Wink (BR323) were combined to create a flat mauve color, ultimately yielding “smudgy lips”.
What do you think of the Narciso Rodriguez look? Is this too minimalist or just right?
