Balmain Looks Come Clean

Natural and sexy were the beauty watchwords at Balmain.

Natural and sexy were the beauty watchwords at Balmain.

“The clothes are so sparkling and strong that we’re balancing that with a clean, matte face,” said makeup artist Tom Pecheux backstage on Sunday.

To nail the look, he plumped for barely-there pink lipstick and creamy pale brown blush from MAC Cosmetics, which was a sponsor of the show. Lids went unpainted, while eyes got a coat of black mascara on the upper lashes, and brown on the bottom. A smudge of brown liner added gentle definition.

Hairstylist Sam McKnight kept locks loose and tousled. Cleanly washed hair was given a spritz of Pantene Volumizing Hairspray at the roots for lift, a touch of serum on the ends, and then fingered through — no brushing allowed. “The look is unpolished confidence — the models are themselves…plus,” he said.
