People can't get enough of Chris Benz, and I have to say: his collection this season is dead sexy. I loved the soft, tousled curls he brought down the runway and the perfect peach (the color is everywhere for Spring, so watch out) lip on all his models. I've been dying to know how to get this look, especially the lipstick, and I was able to snag the scoop on the colors from the people over at Lancôme, who created this "refined '60s party girl" effect. It's actually really simple to do, and it's a runway style that definitely translates to everyday wear.
To find out how to re-create the look, just keep reading.
Daniel, the makeup artist, smudged a light line of Lancome Le Crayon Kohl in Black Coffee ($23.50) on the rims of the model's upper and lower lash lines. Then he followed up with several coats of black mascara.
Lips and cheeks:
Daniel used Lancome L'Absolu Rouge in Chris & Tell on the models' lips, and the Pop 'N Cheeks blush in Coral Flirt — both colors that will be widely available in 2010. Until then, if you'd like to try out the look, I suggest starting with a nude lipliner, like Smashbox The Nude Lipliner ($16), then follow it up with a orange or peach lipstick (depending on what's most flattering for your skin tone) like Revlon Creme Lipstick in Blase Apricot ($9). For cheeks, try a mousse or cream blush to get a sheer wash of color. An easy-to-wear peach shade like Rimmel Mousse Blush in Peach Iced Tea ($7) is an excellent option.
