Beauty Notes From Ungaro And Yves Saint Laurent

As the Paris shows roll on, one beauty trend that returns time and again is the strong mouth. At his Ungaro debut on Monday, Giles Deacon separated the women from the girms ­ some of whom we have not seen in awhile ­ with a worldly, sophisticated approach to beauty that focused
on a strong eyes and a strong mouth. This look is more about playing with textures and technique, commented Nadine Luke, M.A.C Cosmetics director of makeup artists for international. It’s not your typical smoky eye; it’s half messy but always chic. On lips, models wore the house classic Verushka  and lashings of gloss. In a similar vein, Pat McGrath created a strong mouth ­ but with a minimalist eye ­ for Yves Saint Laurent. We wanted something fresh
and strong to compliment the graphic lines of the clothes, so we’ve created a very strong burgundy mouth with a ton of gloss, then bleached the eyebrows, no mascara and used just a little Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream on the lids for shine, she explained.
