Shiseido Get the Look | Narciso Rodriguez
“Narciso’s inspiration this season was his favorite illustrator, Tony Viramontes; because of this, I set out to recreate his use of quick, decorative lines and smudges on the model’s eyes and framed this simple, artistic aspect with a completely clean, natural look.”
– Dick Page, Shiseido Artistic Director
· Created By: Shiseido Artistic Director Dick Page
· Inspiration: Because this season’s collection was inspired by Illustrator, Tony Viramontes, Dick Page wanted to bring his use of quick, decorative lines and smudges to the face of the models. Featuring a smudged eye and bare face, lips and cheeks, this was an artistic look to complement the clothing.
o Cheek: The cheeks were moisturized and left completely bare.
o Eye: A brown cream shadow was applied to the inner and outer parts of the lower eye, with the middle left blank; to create a similar look, use Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Leather (BR306). Next, Dick used the Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Black (BK901) to draw a quick line from the inner corner out, leaving space between the lash line and pencil line. Finally, he used a dark brown powder shadow to fill in the space and slightly smudge the line; this can be recreated with a shade similar to the dark brown found in the Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Strata (BR307).
o Brow: Brows were brushed up to make them bushy using a gel.
o Lip: The lips were kept soft for a healthy, natural look created using Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment.
o Face: The face was moisturized for a fresh “no makeup” skin look.
