Pink Eye Is Pretty

-------

There’s so much beauty happening in photographer Sebastian Kim’s gorgeous spread in the new issue of Numéro, it’s hard to know where to begin. Best to start at the top, then, and work our way down. How do you make deep, side-parted marcel waves modern? By coating them in gray-tinged hair powder, of course. It’s a technique we spied backstage at Thakoon’s Fall 2010 show, when coiffing star Eugene Souleiman employed copious amounts of talc to complement strong brows and a minimally painted face. We would’ve thought it ill-advised to add a complex makeup look to such intricately styled hair. But then we laid eyes on Nimue Smit’s berry-brushed lids, matte wine-stained mouth, and similarly colored moon manicure—all of which serve to heighten the hauntingly beautiful effect of her sculpted silver set. Thoughts on the Dutch stunner’s latest turn in front of the camera?

    This spread was absolutely gorgeous. I saved every picture onto my laptop and the makeup is fresh too! I am definitely going to try out the side part and maybe I’ll be daring enough to try the pink eyes too.
