NYFW Fall 09: United Bamboo

SHOW: United Bamboo
MAKEUP: Dick Page for Shiseido
MODEL: Elyana, Supreme

LOOK: Tweed bomber jackets, suede heels and a black-ribbon cocktail dress ... United Bamboo's collection called for equally sassy-sweet makeup this season. Enter Shiseido's creative director Dick Page, who donned his models in smudgy black liner, soft-pink lips, and strong brows with a lot of depth. "I wanted just a splash of pretty color on the lips, with rich color in the eyebrows. But not too much, or it starts to look a little cartoony. There's nothing worse," he said. Page filled eyebrows in with an eyeliner pencil-the color depending on the model's natural hair color, of course-then moved onto eyes. He lined the entire eye, smudging it out and adding light powder on top, in what he deemed the "halo effect" due to the heavier brows on top. A touch of pink lipstick to the lips, a sweep of black mascara..
