Q&A with Artistic Director Ayako for Phillip Lim 3.1 Show.
Q. What was your inspiration for the Look?
A. It was a picture of a woman that Phillip gave me at the make-up test a few days before the show. The woman looked very powerful and it made me think of a mixture of the 1930’s and 1980’s. I wanted to give the models a hint of 80’s with a powerful and modern feeling, so I created a look centered around a strong eyebrow and a poignant berry red lip, complemented by flawless, clean skin.
Q. What makes this Look special/unique?
A. No words speak more! Just a strong eyebrow and beautiful red lips! This look was very powerful – when I focused on these two features.
Q. How does it relate to current trends?
A.The strong 80’s eyebrow that I created is very popular right now.
Q. What products were used for this Look?
A. I used a few key items. NARS Concealer, Powder Foundation, Eyebrow Pencil, Bali Single Eyeshadow, Fire Down Below (lipstick) and Dragon Girl (velvet matte lip pencil).
Q. What are any tips and tricks women could use when emulating this Look?
A. If you want to go for a bold red lip, it will always look the best and the most modern when it is paired with clean skin and a nude eye.
Thanks to NARS Artistic Director Ayako for her input on this look!! It’s totally do-able and easy to accomplish. If the lips are too much, blot them to a stain or use a really sheer wash of lip color to keep it from being so bold!!
