Backstage Beauty: Thakoon
On Friday afternoon, Thakoon unveiled its Spring 2008 collection. The theme of the show was a narrative about a young girl who ventures from the city to Hawaii to seek out a more resort-y and relaxed style of clothing and makeup. Gucci Westman, the famous makeup artist who styled the show using Lancome products, envisioned a stylish Japanese surfer girl for the look.
Gucci began by applying different pink colors to the the lips. The next thing she knew, she and Thakoon had come up with an idea to create a Pout-a-Porter limited-edition lipstick. The new color is a translucent, cool, creamy stain. It has a beige undertone mixed with a fleshy pink as well as a blue fuchsia—I love it!
- After you've applied the new Lancome Pout-a-Porter Thakoon Lipstick (it won't be out until spring 2008, so substitute your own color until then), focus on the rest of the skin.
- Keep in mind that you are looking for a bronzed and minimalist look. On your cheeks, lightly dust Lancome Blush Subtil in Cappucine on the high parts of your cheekbones and then add a little bit of Lancome Magique Blush in Mocha Cremefor a dewy and darker effect.
- Mix Lancome Le Crayon Poudre in Brunette and Sable and apply it to your brow for strong definition using a Giorgio Armani Eye Contour Brush. Blend well.
- Next, take your Lancome Color Design Eye Shadow in Couture and use it under the eye to make the eye look like it's floating. Apply a very, very light amount of Shu Uemura Eye Shadow in Matte Baby Blue to the lid and blend well so that it's almost impossible to detect!
