Chris Benz Spring 2010 at Mercedez-Benz New York Fashion Week {Beauty & Fashion Notes - Backstage Beauty}

Chris Benz Spring 2010

chris-benz-lancome.jpgFor the makeup Chris asked Daniel [Martin] to create a sun-kissed, fresh look. He wanted a healthy skin and prominent lip.

Daniel gave the models a natural glow by applying Généfique Activating Skin Concentrate to clean skin followed by Généfique Eye to open up and brighten the eye area. The complexion was perfectly even and polished. Shu Uemura Nobara Foundation was applied to even out the skin tone and Lancôme Ageless Mineral Transluscent powder was dusted over the entire face. Pop 'n Cheeks in Coral Flirt was used as a highlighter and lightly applied to the cheekbones near the temple for just a hint of color. To define the eyes, Daniel smudged Le Crayon Khôl in black coffee on the upper and lower lash lines. Several coats of Hypnôse Mascara in black were applied for thick, black lashes...



Lips were bright and creamy. Daniel used L'Absolu Rouge in Chris & Tell for a vivid, coral-colored pout. Chris and Tell is the fifth lipstick in the Pout-à-Porter designer lipstick series and will be available in spring 2010 at Saks Fifth Avenue. In the meantime, the waiting list is open at our Upper West Side boutique. Your readers can call (212) 362-4858 to be added to the waiting list.

To complement the colors in the collection, the models donned pretty pink polishes on their nails and toes. Le Vernis in Bon Bon Strawberry was worn on the nails and Mademoiselle Grape on the toes. Both nail polishes are from La Collection Lollipop, part of a charity collection we'll be telling you about in a few weeks. Stay tuned!
