NYFW Fall 09 : Rodarte
“A deconstructed, reconstructed” look is what makeup artist James Kaliardos was going for backstage at Rodarte yesterday, inspiration that came directly from designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, who have apparently developed a fascination with the building and demolishing of homes. Kaliardos sectioned off the face, carving out cheekbones and the brow bone with MAC Pro Sculpting Powder in Warm Light, dragging a straight line of Frozen White Pigment from underneath the eye up toward the temple at an angle, and using a gray eye shadow called Scene in the crease. But disassembled architecture didn’t inspire the pale gray lip that’s becoming something of a staple this season. That was all Angelina Jolie. “I used to urge her to use beige,” Kaliardos recalled of advice he once gave the now reformed mother of six during her goth years, but Jolie simply would not part with her tube of Folio, a discontinued color that inspired the MAC Pro Lipmix shade Kaliardos whipped up for the show.
