Yeah, Nay, Or Eh: Blush For Fall-------
As readers of this blog have already gleaned (see Rodarte post below), certain members of the face painting community are launching an anti-blush campaign this season. Makeup artist Dick Page is not one of them, however. When we ran into him backstage at Marc by Marc Jacobs yesterday, he was jovially applying a mix of peachy bronze powders to models’ cheeks, asking them to “smile” in order to find the perfect point of application. At Michael Kors this morning, the scenario was much the same, with Page actually reserving the right to paint each girl’s cheeks himself with Shiseido’s Luminizing Satin Face Color in Tea Rose and Shell—”the facial structure’s different on each girl, so I want to make sure the highlights and contours are right.” We told him of the rouge-free movement afoot and asked him his feelings on the matter. “You can quote me on this: Fuck that,” adding that a little cheek color really helps animate the face as a whole. Which camp will you be a part of come September?
