Sunday Riley The Makeup To Make Its Debut In Paris
When we first caught wind of the news that Sunday Riley was hard at work on a complete collection of colored cosmetics last season backstage at Jason Wu, we had a lot of questions. First and foremost, when would we be able to get our hands on it, and who from the face-painting world would Riley wrangle as a co-conspirator on the project? Following a number of encounters with Riley on the Spring show circuit, both questions have been answered: The line will bow in October and will feature the makeup magic of Diane Kendal—she of Proenza, Alexander Wang, and Thakoon backstage fame—who has signed on as color consultant. “Sunday’s dedication to great ingredients while being very eco-conscious is an unusual combination in the beauty industry,” Kendal recently told Style.com of her rationale for teaming up with Riley. “I find it refreshing,” she continued, “and felt I could really get behind someone who is so forward-thinking.” While there are still a few weeks before the official debut of what we can only imagine will be a series of truly exceptional, green-leaning products with amazing, skincarelike textures, we just found out that we’ll be getting a sneak preview of them in action this week in Paris. Kendal will be premiering the line this Sunday backstage at Maiyet, followed by an encore performance at Vanessa Bruno on Monday. We’ll definitely report back on how it performs in the trenches. Stay tuned.
