Flashback Friday: Brighten Up-------
Flashback Friday is a column on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Arizona Muse
The Moment: Tropical Punch
The Motivation: When I came across this photo of Arizona Muse by Patrick Demarchelier for British Vogue‘s February 2012 issue, I immediately longed for summer, or at the very least, a vacation in a warm, palm tree-laden destination. But aside from daydreams about jet-setting to an island that’s far sunnier than Manhattan at the present time, I noticed that Muse sported multiple Spring 2014 trends: pastel-blue shadow (seen at Miu Miu), along with bold lips (on display for the first time at Rag & Bone). And instead of being swirled on her apples, the blush was dusted low on her cheeks (a technique face painter Tom Pecheux employed at Marni). While I’m not one to wear color in more than one place, Muse certainly makes a case for breaking the makeup rules.
