Runway Makeup: Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013


At Oscar de la Renta, Orlando Pita and Gucci Westman, global artistic director for Revlon, were both inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” “It’s Holly Golightly meets Keith Haring,” Pita explained as he added colored pieces of hair — blue, pink or yellow, depending on the model — and teased hair into a volumized French twist, finishing with a generous application of hair spray.

Westman wanted girls to look “naughty but nice — I wanted it to feel colorful and pretty.” Westman kept skin luminous with Revlon PhotoReady Color Correcting Primer, PhotoReady Perfecting Primer and PhotoReady Cream Blush in Flushed. Lips were the centerpiece of the look: Westman used Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm in Crave, Revlon Baby Stick for Lips and Cheeks in Pink Passion and Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipsticks in Muse and Preview to create a suede-matte fuchsia lip. Eyes got a bit of ColorStay Eyeliner in brown, curled lashes and a swipe of Revlon Illuminance Crème Shadow in Not Just Nudes. Several girls got freckles — the eye-pencil variety.

Nails were finished with Shock, a vibrant pink; Envy, a sea green, or Flirt, a refined opal white shade. All are limited-edition shades that the designer will begin taking pre-orders for in October.
