Fellini Eyes at YSL

Fellini's 1963 movie "8 1/2" helped inspire makeup backstage at Yves Saint Laurent Thursday.

Fellini’s 1963 movie “8 1/2” helped inspire makeup backstage at Yves Saint Laurent Thursday.

“I didn’t take it as a reference. It’s more of a twist, and Yves Saint Laurent makeup with a twist,” said makeup artist Tom Pecheux.

Eyes stole the show, with eyeliner stretching outward and upward topped with a row of false lashes. Using YSL Matt Touch Foundation and Perfect Touch, Pecheux created a matte base, which was topped with Poudre Sur Measure.

Using hues from the Palette Collection compact, he added a hint of blush and contoured slightly.

Hairstylist Julien d’Ys, meanwhile, did dual-toned coifs for the show and added hair extensions, which were each specially dyed in Crayola-bright hues to match the outfits models wore on the runway. The back-combed updos were inspired by Simone Signoret and Jeanne Moreau, d’Ys said.
