Oscar de la Renta’s spring/summer 2015 beauty look, created by makeup artist Gucci Westman for Hourglass, was pretty, polished and with a dash of modern edge.
Backstage at Tuesday’s show, models including Karlie Kloss flaunted luminous skin, berry-stained lips and, striking a slightly rebellious note, dramatic winged liner on the eyes.
“I was inspired by some of the more graphic prints in the collection,” said Westman, who combined two Hourglass liners to create the playful geometric shape and deep obsidian shade. “It needed to be appear inky, so I started with Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner and then applied the 1.5mm Mechanical Gel Eye Liner on top. It’s youthful, cool and fresh.” To balance the bold liner, Westman fashioned a runway-worthy radiance by using Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint and the Ambient Lighting Palette. “Unlike cream highlighters, which are difficult to control, the palette is incredibly easy to use. It’s all about gorgeous, effortless beauty.”
