backstage at chris benz with lancome.

it was a dream come true for me to be invited to cover lancome's backstage preparation of the models in chris benz's presentation for spring/summer 2008. i sorta of fled la office when i got the email inviting me and ran to the new york yacht club (where the presentation was being held).

first there is the necessary equipment (take a look at all those brushes!):


i spoke with lancome artist daniel martin who created the look for this show. daniel explained that he focused on a dewy, relatively nude, hand-sculpted, clean (as opposed to gritty or bronzy) look for the skin. the emphasis of this look is a return to the lip, rather than the eye, as the focus on the face. lips and cheeks wore an exaggerated natural flush. a few simple coats of mascara helped open up the model's eyes. to create the fabulous girlish pop seen on the model's mouths, lancome's color fever lipstick in SOS pink was layered under their coral rush juicy tube:



and voila! a couple hours later, you have the finished product:
