Beauty Sound Bites: Everyone’s Gotta Start Somewhere-------
“My entire makeup collection growing up was made up of gifts-with-purchase. When my mom would buy her face cream, usually Clinique or Lancôme, she would give me all the samples. I had everything—from tiny lipsticks to fragrances like White Linen and Cinnabar [from Estée Lauder].”
Above, we pay homage to the superstylist’s humble beauty beginnings with Jason Wu’s GWP for Lancôme, which was inspired by a lace-print raincoat from his Fall 2013 collection. While he chatted with us about the cosmetic bag during a recent interview, we didn’t see it in person until the designer’s hair-and-makeup test yesterday afternoon (naturally, Young was there to finesse the look and put in her two cents). It is, in fact, the chicest freebie we’ve ever seen. Good to know that we can rely on Wu to keep his word.
