A modern seductress was makeup artist Pat McGrath’s take on the look’s dewy skin and glossy red orange-y lips.

Glossy red mouth that McGrath painted onto pouts with a brush dipped into a mixture of not one, not two, but three different scarlet pigments for the “orangey-red” color was the main attention.
“It’s something different from the retro and vintage looks out there,” said McGrath, who credited the look’s contemporary feel to well-prepped light, luminous skin created using NatureLuxe silk foundation by Cover Girl. Taupe and bronze eye shadow offered a hint of the traditional vamp. The eye was glossy courtesy of a slick of Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream on top. Finishing touches came in the form of CoverGirl’s LashBlast Fusion mascara and MAC Lacquer in Shirelle, a cherry red varnish applied to fingers and pedicured toes.
Luigi Mureno attached thin bronze leather hair bands — created for the show and which matched the collection’s handbags and shoes — to hold together even the shortest locks with a sculptural flourish. John Frieda’s Frizz Ease serum was used to mold the style’s sleek side part Mureno described as military.
