Chris Benz Makeup Spring 2013

Exclusive! Go Behind the Scenes at Chris Benz's Makeup Test

Chris Benz is known for his own bright pink hair, so naturally the shade starred in his Spring 2013 runway beauty look. Hair was slicked at the roots and teased. "It's kind of inspired by stray cats," Benz explained. And makeup got a farmhouse-fresh finish. Key makeup artist Daniel Martin applied a translucent pink to the eyes, Lancôme's Color Design Infinité shadow in Perpetual Pink ($25), and a bright rosé shade to the high cheekbones, using the Cheek and Contour Brush ($40) to create an upside-down triangle blush shape that extended upward just underneath the eye. Then, after a few coats of mascara, eyelashes were clumped together with tweezers. The result: a healthy, vibrant, pretty-in-pink glow. See how it all came together in this makeup test done days before the show.
