Backstage Beauty: Derek Lam Makeup And Nails

Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux concepted the makeup for Derek Lam – while famed manicurist Jin Soon Choi and her team polished models’ nails with NEW Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer in So Vain and Nudité (launching March 2013). 

Said Pecheux, “The beauty look Derek Lam and I created for the Fall 2013 show is a sophisticated, minimal urban hippie – playing off of Derek’s inspirational mood board and the textures and colors of the fabrics in his collection.  The focus is on the eyes and the lips.  I placed a highlight of metallic shimmer in the center of the eyelid, to make it appear very flat, like a two-dimensional painting on a canvas.  The saturated stain on the lips is very strong and intense –  a mix of brown, maroon and burgundy.  The skin is very fresh and iridescent, a satin-matte texture.”
