Runway Makeup: Michael Kors Spring 2013


A Sixties-via-the-Nineties vibe characterized the beauty at Michael Kors. Dick Page, Shiseido’s artistic director, focused on adding “a pop of color” to the eyes with a face that was otherwise soft and subtle. He began by applying Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color in Soft Beam Gold and High Beam White to create lightness on the eyelid, upper cheek and under-eye area. Next, using a soft fluff brush, he created what he called “a floating graphic arc” along the natural shape of the lid — in turquoise for blondes and redheads, green for brunettes. The upper lash line got a trace of white, followed by Luminizing Satin Face Color in High Beam White and a light coat of Perfect Mascara Full Definition in black. Brows were emphasized using Shimmering Cream Eye Color in a shade appropriate for each girl. Lips were finished with Perfect Rouge in Vision, a pale nudish-pink.

Orlando Pita did a deep side part and swept hair across the head, using elastic bungee fasteners to create two small sections of hair that then were covered with another panel of hair and secured with a thin barrette.
