To accent the new direction of Mark Badgley and James Mischka (who, consequently, walked around backstage right while I was there!), Pecheux decided to create a look that would not be too strong. "More like a cocktail in the evening makeup," he said. He used a palette of bluish grey with a texture between matte and shimmery, mixing three of the colors in the palette with a grey and finishing with a matte texture on top to make it more subtle. He then used a M.A.C Mineralize Eyeshadow on top of it for a bit of shimmer. "The eye is a bit smoky, but only on the top," Pecheux said. This color related back to a color in the collection, which showed up in a few pieces that came down the runway.
Pecheux finished with M.A.C Ever Rich Lipgloss -- "I would call it a milk lavender," he told me -- and kept the skin matte with a bit of definition on the eyebrows. "Elegance, richness," Pecheux said. It most certainly was.
