NYFW: Backstage Beauty with Tom Pecheux at Derek Lam RTW 2010

SHOW: Derek Lam

LEAD ARTIST: Tom Pecheux for NARS Cosmetics

TREND: Tribal Inspired Eyes and Doll-Like Red Lips

INSPIRATION: Derek Lam’s inspiration drew from a nostalgic fantasy evoked by places such as Coney Island, Asbury Park, and Key West. It was a parade of carnival essence and cinematic quality with an American twist meant to bring forth a new perspective on silhouette.

LOOK: An optimistic fairytale of color. Tom Pecheux created vibrant eyes and bright, cherry-red lips complemented by a doll-like flush of pink and orange. “I wanted to dot the lips red with my fingers rather than draw a straight line of color. Instead, I chose to do that with the eyes- I love when the multiple colors are drawn straight across and outward for a very tribal effect. I used the new Easy Lover lip gloss on just the outline of the lips to have the girls appear doll-like. It was Coney Island chic,” said Tom Pecheux.

Below are some key products and steps for recreating the look:


· Blend NARS Sheer Glow Foundation with a foundation brush into skin

· Set with NARS Loose Powder

· Buff skin with NARS Kabuki Artisan Boton Brush for a porcelain doll effect


· Using the emerald side of NARS Misfit Duo Eyeshadow and NARS Eye Shader brush, drag the
shadow along the lower lash line straight across until just past the outer corner

· Dust the violet side of NARS Jolie Poupee Duo Eyeshadow on the eyelids; use the darker side in the
crease and fade into the temple joining the emerald green from Misfit

· Highlight the inner corners of the eyes with NARS Bains Douche Glitter Pencil (NEW for Spring 2010),
making the connection between the purple and green

· After curling lashes with NARS Eyelash Curler, apply three coats of NARS Larger Than Life
Volumizing Mascara on the top and bottom lashes

· Dust the burnt orange side of NARS Mediteranee Duo Eyeshadow along the brow bone


· Fill in the lips lightly with NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, dotting the lips with your fingers
to blend it in

· Outline the lips with NARS Easy Lover Lip Gloss (NEW for Spring 2010) to create a plush-looking,
glassy pout


· Apply NARS Nico Blush to give a subtle hint of highlighting

· Dust Desire Blush in round, circular movements onto the apples of the cheeks

· Finish with NARS Taj Mahal Blush, blending it in with the pink cheeks and up towards the temples
