Backstage Beauty: Alexandre Herchcovitch


Fab is all delighted about the tote bag she picked up at Alexandre Herchcovitch. Me? I was just happy to see some keee-ray-zee color. Lead makeup artist Philippe Chansel steered faces away from subtlety, instead opting for a bold splash of color on eyes. Rusk Artistic Director Sandra Yu pulled models' hair back, then added a pop of color with silk sashes underneath the bun.

"The designer's inspiration was Bauhaus style and Pop Art, and the makeup's a little more Pop Art," Chansel told me backstage. "What I mean by Pop Art is graphic color, but also wanting to keep it feminine and not too cartoony. So the eye is where all of the attention is. To me, it means that we don't need to be afraid to wear color in the fall. Fall doesn't always mean navy blue, black, and brown eye shadow."

Chansel's team used MAC Micronized Airbrush foundation, but used it manually; since that product is available only to professionals, you might want to try Studio Mist instead. Lips were a soft nude pink, N3, from MAC's recent N collection. (It also happened to be the lipstick I wore this morning. Kismet!
