With the rainbow of colors featured at Derek Lam for his showing at 2010 New York Fashion Week, I think we all sensed a bit of an '80s vibe. Tom Pecheux for NARS Cosmetics created this vivid look. "I wanted to dot the lips red with my fingers rather than draw a straight line of color," he said. "Instead, I chose to do that with the eyes. I love when the multiple colors are drawn straight across and outward for a very tribal effect . . . It was Coney Island chic," he added. Of course, runway looks are meant to look a bit extreme, but could you see yourself wearing a more toned-down, less heavy-handed version? I have to confess; I most certainly can.
