“Maria’s collection this season was very pure. The models were barefoot on the runway and wore only white; because of this, I created a ‘melted’ makeup look that was very gentle and easy-looking.”
– Dick Page, Shiseido Artistic Director
· Created By: Shiseido Artistic Director Dick Page
· Inspiration: Because this season’s collection was shown on the runway only in white, Dick Page wanted to complement the clothing with a neutral yet “scruffy” look, which was inspired by a photograph of Charlotte Rampling taken by Arthur Elgort featuring a smudged glossy eye and messy hair.
o Cheek: To create a healthy, natural glow, a blend of Rouge Rouge in Sweet Desire (RD714) and Rose Crush (RD715) (NEW for Fall 2016) was applied as a stain to the apples of the cheeks and bridge of the nose using a blush brush.
o Eye: A brown cream shadow was painted close to the top and bottom lash lines; to create a similar look, use Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Leather (BR306). The product was applied with a fluffy brush to blend the bottom liner, and the top liner up onto the eyelid to ensure that it didn’t look like a hard line. Dick Page then used his fingers to “mess up” the lower lash line to create a less perfect look. Lastly, Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment was applied to the lid using a fluffy brush to slightly melt the makeup. Lashes were left natural without mascara.
o Brow: Brows were strengthened and filled in for a natural look with the Eyebrow Styling Compact in Deep Brown (GY901).
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 natural “no makeup” skin look.
