New York Fashion Week Backstage Beauty Top Tip From Gucci Westman: Use Cream Eyeshadow On Your Lips!

Thu, September 15, 2011 9:00am EDT by Add first Comment

At the J. Mendel spring 2012 fashion show, metallic eyes reigned supreme, but to tie the look together, the same cream shadow used on the lids was used on the lips!

Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, demonstrated a great tip for making your products multi-use. She applied a clear gloss as a base to the model’s lips and took a Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow from the palette Not Just Nudes and patted the color lightly onto the lips. I caught up with Gucci backstage to get the details on the look.

“The inspiration is sort of the opposite of glamorous,” explains Gucci. “It’s more like that cool girl. I’m using grays, browns, pearl and yellow in tear ducts.”

The shadow look was a bit shimmery from metallic shadows and Gucci used powder eyeshadows on top of the creme palette colors to set the looks.

Lots of backstage beauty tips and tricks are great for the runway, but don’t translate very well to real life. This tip is perfect for saving time, freeing up space in your makeup bag and saving money on multiple products.
