Derek Lam Fall 2010 Runway Show 2010-02-16 09:26:04

Fall 2010 New York Fashion Week: Derek Lam

Being a model is nice work if you can get it, but at Derek Lam's backstage, the job really had its perks. Lead makeup artist and creative makeup director Tom Pecheux for Estee Lauder began the makeup process by layering Advanced Night Repair ("the caviar," he called it) under Re-Nutriv Ultimate Youth Cream, then gently working it into skin. "My favorite part is to massage the face," he said. "Massaging gets the circulation going, and it's special for the models. Sometimes they're tired and stressed, but you give a few minutes' massage, and everything is gone."

After preparing the skin, he applied Double-Wear Light foundation with fingertips; the rest of the skin was bare, with no blush or contouring. The strong eyes incorporated bronze, deep teal, and deepest navy shadows, all of which will be part of Estee Lauder's Fall makeup collection. Along with TurboLash, Pecheux used Double Wear Stay-in-Place eye pencil in Midnight Blue to define eyes. A light dusting of the bronze shadow along the lower lash line helped brighten the look. On lips, he applied Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Crystal Beige, adding just a dab of the bronze shadow for extra color.

While the eye makeup was bold, the hair was wispy. "It's textured hair, but it's not dry and hard," lead stylist Orlando Pita said of the ethereal runway look. "It feels very soft." To create the look, he worked styling cream through hair before generously spraying Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray underneath. The end result was a puffed-out style that seemed to float as models hit the runway.
