Judging by all the Instagrams, Céline’s ad campaigns are just about as eagerly anticipated as its shows. Phoebe Philo stuck with what works for Fall, enlisting model Daria Werbowy and lensman Juergen Teller for the third season running. Last time around, the Canadian super sported a chic bob that launched a thousand imitations, and the latest series brought plenty of new beauty ideas to the table. In several of the images, Werbowy is working a deep brick red lip and matching talon-like tips that called to mind those mink-lined pumps with the built-in pedicures from Spring. Others feature Werbowy wearing a topknot tied with a big bow, a rather unexpected touch for such a minimalist collection. But unlikely or not, we predict it too might spark a trend. What do you think?
Phoebe Philo’s Céline show is one of the hottest tickets in Paris—so hot, in fact, getting backstage is a near-impossible task. But not if you’re Dick Page. The Shiseido artistic director of makeup, and longtime Philo collaborator, has been on face-painting duty here for seasons, including Fall 2013, which proved to be a big winner for the designer, thanks in small part to Page’s “natural, healthy, transparent beauty.” Here, Page provides a postcard from the trenches:
“It’s clean and pure. Lightly moisturized skin [with] a wash of foundation where needed to cover any blemishes or redness. I used dark brown concealer to shade around the lash lines—top and bottom—for a naturally shaded effect, and Shiseido’s eyebrow compact brushed through the brows to toughen them up. No mascara. Lips were treated with its Benefiance Lip Balm and muted slightly with a rose-beige camouflage concealer for a very natural lip finish. I did a little color toning on each girl individually, with beige/tawny/brown concealers applied with a fluffy blush brush across the cheeks, the bridge of the nose, and a little around the hairline, depending on the skin tone, leaving freckles and natural shadows [visible] under the eyes. The result? You don’t see makeup. You just see pretty girls in gorgeous clothes.”
