Runway Makeup: Missoni Spring 2013


We have to admit it: We’ve been waiting for a flash of neon color on the face all week—so when models finally turned up with techno-bright lips on the Missoni runway, the effect was that much more satisfying. “I was thinking about Japanese Manga drawings,” makeup artist Lucia Pieroni said of the surreal, not-quite-pink, not-quite-orange fluorescent shade she whipped up using a combination of M.A.C. Lipmix in Magenta, White, and Orange. After painting it on with a brush, she pressed a bit of M.A.C. Red Electric pigment on top for a powdery finish that was akin to a high-voltage melon. “It’s almost like the [finish] of a felt-tip pen—you know how they’re so matte and saturated? The color is stamped on in the center and kind of bleeds out toward the edges,” said Pieroni of the almost imperceptible ombré effect. She kept the rest of the face fresh, save for a few dabs of highlighter on the cheekbones and clear gloss (M.A.C. Lipglass) on the eye. “Dry lips and sticky lids,” she said with a laugh. “These girls are going to hate me!”
