So, um yeah, we love designer Alexandre Herchcovitz, but when we consider the facts, we’re disappointed that only the wealthiest of the cool kids (like model/socials Cory Kennedy and Byrdie Bell, who sat front row) can actually afford his clothes. And, while we appreciate an artist who takes risks, it’s also pretty clear to us that we won’t be saving up to buy the above ensemble anyway, n’est-ce pas? What we will be getting all up on is the pretty peach eye makeup paired with rosy pink blush that Global Makeup Artist for Maybelline New York Charlotte Willer used on the girls to give them a flushed look to go with the footballer theme. How peachy shadow makes your eye color pop, after the jump.
Between my tragic photography skills and the fact that the tiny backstage area was packed full of stylists, models, photographers and journalists, it’s hard to tell just how beautiful this makeup looked in person. But trust me: It was not only flattering to all of the girls, it was something unexpected yet wearable. Also, it’s cheap and easy, which is how we always like to roll. Willer exclusively used shades from Maybelline’s Mineral Power collection, brushing Naturally Luminous Blush in Gentle Pink on the models’ cheekbones and True Peach on their lids. “It’s a five-minute look,” she explained. “Peach really brings out the eye color.” Which is opposed to pink, which can make some eyes look a bit sickly. So there you have it kids: Keep the pink on the cheeks and the peach on the eyes.
Second very important lesson to be learned here: You can totally put your blush on your eyes and, evidently, your eyeshadow on your lips.
