James Kaliardos Paints It Pink Backstage At DVF
What is it about Warhol? The pop artist’s famous silk screens inspired not only Charlotte Tilbury at Victoria Beckham, but also the “matte, popping, beautiful orchid color” that James Kaliardos painted on models’ mouths at Diane von Furstenberg. Rather than using sculpting powders, Kaliardos added contours to clean skin with MAC’s Cream Colour Base in Pearl. But it was really all about the lip, which bore a striking resemblance to a similar MAC-made pout that premiered at Antonio Berardi’s Fall 2009 show; we loved it then and are just as enamored with it now. Kaliardos’ version started with MAC Pro’s Chromagraphic Pencil in Processed Magenta for a nice base, which the face painter topped off with its Pigment in Magenta Madness for a vivid, chalky finish. Do try this at home.
