Backstage Beauty: United Bamboo


I always enjoy United Bamboo shows because the clothing is forward-thinking. At today's show, the makeup was just as innovative, featuring a double-toned effect on eyes. In creating this look, Dick Page, Artistic Director of Shiseido The Makeup, referred to how teenage girls experiment with makeup. "It's probably more like what teenage girls of my generation would have liked, back in the 1700s," he joked.

As complex as the effect is, this look uses relatively few products. Page used the Color Stick on eyes, then brushed on a shiny, silvery aqua on the inner corner of the eye and the lid. Then, the outer eye gets a wing of copper-hued shadow. Skin was essentially bare—just a bit of concealer and powder—and lips literally were bare. Page sent the models out with nothing but lip balm, which inspired me to go nude for the rest of the day. (Well, on my lips, at least.)
