Backstage Beauty At Lanvin

If Balenciaga and Lanvin are any indication (and you can bet they are), your spring beauty basics will be “architectural” and very, very matte. Backstage at Lanvin, Pat McGrath talked about spring’s sport-inspired spirit, noting that she used CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation and concealer to tone down eyebrows and lips. “It’s a
natural look, with contoured cheekbones and a slight contour around the eyes,” she said. To get the look, she applied taupe shadow to the lid with her fingertip, and used two pairs of false eyelashes to make eyes pop.

Hair guru Guido Paulo finger-combed Redken Hardware 16 through damp hair before catching it in a wet ponytail at the nape of the neck and finishing with Vinyl Glam hairspray. “It’s strong and sexy but in a simple way,” he said.
