Backstage with Lancôme at Chris Benz

New York Fashion Week Spring 2010 Makeup Trend Report.

Show: Chris Benz Spring 2010 Collection
Lead Makeup Artist: Daniel Martin for Lancôme
The Trend: Coral-colored pout.

The Look: Refined 60’s party girl. Healthy skin and stand-out lips: Chris’ spring collection is full of whimsical fabrics, colorful ornamentation and texture pieces.  For the makeup Chris asked Daniel to create a sun-kissed fresh look. He wanted healthy skin and prominent lip.


Daniel gave the models a natural glow by applying GÉNIFIQUE Youth Activating Concentrate to clean skin followed by GÉNIFIQUE Eye (Available 10/15/09) to brighten and open up the eye area. The complexion was perfectly even and polished. Shu Uemura Nobara Foundation was applied to even out the skin tone and Lancôme AGELESS MINÉRALE WITH WHITE SAPPHIRE COMPLEX (A perfecting and setting mineral powder) was dusted over the entire face. POP ‘N CHEEKS in Coral Flirt (Available Spring 2010) was used as a highlighter and lightly applied to the cheekbones near the temple for just a hint of color.

To define the eyes, Daniel smudged LE CRAYON KHÔL in Black Coffee on the upper and lower lash lash lines. Several coats of HYPNÔSE Mascara in Black were applied for thick, black lashes.

Lips were bright and creamy. Daniel used  L’ABSOLU ROUGE in Chris & Tell (Available Spring 2010 at Saks Fifth Avenue) for a vivid, coral-colored pout. Chris & Tell is the fifth lipstick in the POUT-A-PORTER designer lipstick series. In the meantime, the waiting list is open at Lancôme’s Upper West Side Boutique. simply call 212-362-4858 to be added to the waiting list.

I took this image backstage at Chris Benz Spring 2010 the NEW L’ABSOLU ROUGE in Chris & Tell. I was holding this small sample like it was gold, lol!  L’ABSOLU ROUGE in Chris & Tell was my favorite makeup trend during NY Fashion Week. I’m absolutely addicted to this lipstick. It is THE perfect pink coral lipstick and looks great on any complexion. For some reason the pink coral shade brightens my face instantly, especially when I’m tired. Girls, you will LOVE it!

To complement the bright colors in the collection, the models donned pretty pink polishes on their nails and toes. LE VERNIS in Bon Bon Strawberry was worn on the nails and Mademoiselle Grape on the toes. Both nail polishes are from LA COLLECTION LOLLIPOP (coming this November), part of a charity collection coming up in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!!
