A Familiar “Pop Of Color” Shows Up Backstage At Versus
As previously mentioned, blue is making a case for makeup color of the season, giving more standard applications of black liner, shadow, and grease a real run for their money. Last we checked, incarnations of the placid hue in shades of navy and aqua at shows like Altuzarra and Michael Kors in New York had made the trip across the pond, turning up at Mary Katrantzou and Clements Ribeiro in London. The color touched down in Milan this weekend at Versus, too, where Pat McGrath added a stroke of cobalt blue genius to the equation. “It’s a pop of color,” she said, singling out one of many bold shades from Christopher Kane and Donatella Versace’s collection of rainbow brights. “We tried a bunch of different colors—greens, yellows,” McGrath revealed, although blue—applied with “just a sweep of the brush”—was the clear winner. There—and elsewhere; an etching of midnight pigment appeared along the upper lash lines at Just Cavalli yesterday, and this morning at Fendi (more on that in a bit), Peter Philips played with royal blue via glued-on, fabric strips turned eyeliner. We’re gonna go out on a limb here and say it won’t be the color’s last cameo.
