Beauty Bytes: The Versace Look

November 10th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

When you think of the Versace beauty, there are a few catchphrases that come to mind and smoky eyes are probably pretty high on the list. Using the brand’s heritage and signature look as inspiration Tom Pecheux created the ultimate statement eye for the Versace for H&M show. With the combo of MAC’s matte black Carbon shadow and silver loose pigments, Pecheaux crafted an edgy look that was accentuated by bleached brows. Stars like show opener Natasha Poly worked the look along with lengthy extensions by Orlando Pita and sleek leather bandanas.

The lovely Bianca Balti named the newest face of L’Oreal – this marks the second major cosmetics company to sign a model spokeswoman in recent months. Are cosmetics giants starting to embrace models again after years of relying on actresses?

Speaking of which, Emily Blunt is the new face of YSL Opium following in the footsteps of Sophie Dahl, Kate Moss & Karen Elson.

Makeup artist Alex Box is one of our favorites and her innovative line Illamasqua enters the fragrance realm with a truly inventive scent, Freak. The captivating and gothic blend features notes that wouldn’t seem out of place in a witch’s cauldron. Black davana, belladonna, poison hemlock, datura, queen of the night, frankincense, oud and myrrh are nice individually, but together they’re fantastical. Be one of the first to try it at select Sephoras – it launches this week!

W Editors share their beauty secrets who is addicted to Rodin Olio Lusso, who is lucky enough to get their haircut by Garren himself!?

20 years after launching 10 revolutionary nude lipcolors at Bergdorf Goodman, Bobbi Brown is still a force in the fashion and beauty industries – no wonder she’s the toast of Paris!

FYI The almost black but not quite nail polish used at the show (and on the nails of the gorge Daphne Groeneveld) is Deborah Lippmann’s Dark Side of the Moon.

i-D Magazine‘s final two covers of their winter warm up issue feature the stunning Joan Smalls and incredible new face Benjamin Eidem. The winking shots by Benjamin Alexander Huseby and Willy Vanderperre are as cool as you’d expect from i-D and when we showed Joan & Benjamin the covers backstage today (at Victoria’s Secret & Calvin Klein respectively) they were absolutely thrilled with the end result. More on both developments later – but for now check out i-D Online for even more from the Winter Warm up Issue.

Candy Darling

November 7th, 2011 |Posted by Betty

The always daring Candy Magazine‘s new issue has Chloe Sevigny posing as Terry Richardson and Mariano Vivanco shooting a gaggle of very masculine male faces in full bunny regalia and some pretty serious makeup by the always amazing Alex Box. The focus on the male body is stronger than ever and the fascination with Andrej Pejic shows that new boundaries for male beauty are constantly being reset. Candy’s celebration of transvestism, transsexuality, cross dressing and androgyny seems more relevant than ever. (For more Candy, go to their website).

(Not in order) Andrey Zakharov, Matt Trethe, Sam Lawson, Stefan Pollmann, Thom Morrell by Mariano Vivanco, styled by Luke Day, set design by Gary Card.
