Revlon Makeup Artist Gucci Westman at Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 Fashion Show
It's Sexy Sixties Style at Diane von Furstenberg

Think runway makeup is all about expensive brands? Think again. At the Diane von Furstenberg show, lead makeup artist Gucci Westman used Revlon on top models like Jessica Stam and Coco Rocha. Westman has recently been named Global Artistic Director for the brand, and I've gotta say, she's already making me think differently about drugstore makeup.

Case in point: this '60s-inspired Veruschka-on-a-safari look. Models wore khaki tones punched up with a shot of bold color — in this case, a flash of yellow on shimmering black eyes. (For day-to-day wear, leave the yellow aside and instead use matte eye shadow; Westman used Revlon matte eye shadow in Rich Sable, Peach Sorbet, and Vintage Lace.) The mod lip color isn't lipstick; it's the Peach Sorbet eye shadow mixed with white Matte Lux eyeliner.

So will we see a Gucci Westman makeup collection from Revlon anytime soon? "Eventually," Westman said, adding that she's already giving input on products being made now. "Everybody is excited to bring back that iconic woman — like the Charlie girl, but a modern take on that." For now, though, I'm off to figure out how to make this whole eye-products-on-the-lips thing work off the runway.

I don't like the light lip at all. A darker pink would be fabulous.

i love drugstore products, and i can't rly afford more expensive stuff most of the time, but i hate to say i can kind of tell the makeup used here is cheaper stuff...the girls don't look that great IMHO, you can tell the dark eye shadows aren't fabulously made...maybe it's just me!

The models look so pretty! I really like doing the whole shadow on the lips things. I started doing it in high school to darken up glosses. I want to make a headband like that now! So fun! Gucci Westman is fabulous.
