Makeup artist Sharon Dowsett, working with MAC Cosmetics, took Emanuel Ungaro designer Esteban Cortazar’s lead for the color cosmetics look at his first show for the house on Wednesday.

“Esteban gave me very great inspiration,” she said, naming words such as “organic” and “pebble.” “I went a bit further along that path and went to see Monet’s water lilies at the Orangerie.” The lilacs and pale blues she noted were then channeled into makeup. To fete Cortazar’s debut Ungaro collection, according to Dowsett, MAC will launch a limited edition, co-branded makeup line this October.

Hairstyles (full of twists and loops) at Ungaro were called “organic,” as well, by Jamie Stevens, part of the directive at GHD, which sponsored hair at the show.
