“Beautiful Robots” At Victoria Beckham
The luminescent skin? The glimmering eyes? That nude lip? If you think you’ve seen it all before, it’s because you have—kind of. Victoria Beckham told us that the shimmery makeup at her presentation yesterday was intended to evoke “beautiful robots,” but we saw a touch of the pop star-turned-designer herself in the look that makeup artist Francelle whipped up for the occasion. After applying Lancôme’s Ageless Minérale Foundation, which has a unique white sapphire complex to reflect light, Francelle topped each girl off with a dusting of loose translucent powder for a soft, velvety finish. On the eyes, she started with Lancôme’s new Ombre Magnétique in Silver, which is due out in the fall and combines the effects of an opaque metallic pigment with an easy-to-wear cream shadow. Then she coated the lids with a combination of Color Design eye shadows in Optic (a shiny ivory) and Crème Lustre (a light pewter). A mix of Lancôme’s L’Absolu Rouge lipstick in Rich Cashmere with a few dabs of concealer completed a picture that came off, well, perfectly posh.
