The Nude Review, Backstage at Phillip Lim
“He really lets me be quite spontaneous,” makeup artist Lisa Butler said of Phillip Lim, whose collection of neutral, modular sportswear inspired her “sculpted, clean” makeup look at the designer’s show yesterday. Using NARS Multiples to contour, Butler applied a combination of its Sheer Lipstick in Barbarella, a nude pink, and a similar as-yet-unreleased shade of its Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere, onto the tops of models’ cheeks for added dimension. Eschewing mascara and lipstick, Butler finished off the face with a simple application of NARS Eyebrow Pencils on the lash line, which she diffused outward for a softer effect. Hairstylist Odile Gilbert complemented Butler’s simplicity with an “effortless chignon, the kind every model does on herself.” Prepping hair with Phytovolume Actif, Gilbert created a front side part, which she twisted into a faux bang before adding it to an unstructured bun in back. After pulling a few wisps out to frame the face, Gilbert spritzed a halo of Phytolaque hairspray over her handiwork to hold everything together.
