Flashback Friday: Pretty in Pink
Flashback Friday is a feature 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: Niki Taylor
The Moment: Sweet and Smoky
The Motivation: Ever since Guillaume Henry sent oversize “teddy bear-textured” pink coats down the runway at Carven’s Fall 2013 show, the fashion set fully embraced the pastel hue. But when it comes to wearing such a bold color on your body, how to plan your makeup? You can never go wrong with red lipstick, but for a look that’s slightly more unexpected, take inspiration from this early-nineties shot of Niki Taylor lensed by Arthur Elgort. Sure, the gold jewelry is gaudy and the shadow is extended a little too close to her brows, but strip away all the excess and those luscious lashes and perfectly nude lips direct attention to the outfit—which, in the case of a rose-colored jacket, is always a plus.
