Make Your Mark With Temptu
Backstage, there was a lot of airbrushing going on, but the pros weren’t perfecting complexions Photoshop-style—far from it. Pat McGrath scrawled muted shades of mustard, green, purple, and blue across lids at Prada, while Peter Philips erased hairlines at Alexander McQueen by blasting models’ foreheads with black paint. McGrath admitted that the spray gun was “a new medium” for her, but true to form, she managed to use it in an unconventional way that would make graffiti legend Banksy proud.
Interested in “tagging” a few features of your own? Get your hands on the limited-edition version of Temptu’s Airbrush Makeup System that features a removable GelaSkin designed by Jade Lai of Creatures of Comfort. The navy sticker that covers the machine’s base is dotted with the same dandelionlike pattern printed on the skirts, shirtdresses, cropped pants, and tanks in Lai’s Spring 2014 collection. Create a flawless canvas by applying the Airpod Foundation and Blush (included in the kit), then take a cue from this season’s European runways and color outside the lines.
Temptu Limited-Edition Creatures of Comfort Kit, $149, available at www.temptu.com and NYC and L.A. Creatures of Comfort boutiques.
