More Info
									The color purple is reprised pretty much every Fall. There’s something
about its rich, jeweled tones that speak to the cooler temperatures and
work well in complement to the tweeds, plaids, and—if the shows this
season are any indication—the onslaught of fur that will hit stores come
September. But smudging on a lid-ful of aubergine pigment is just one way
to incorporate the regal shade into your makeup arsenal. Subtle hints of
the color can have just as much impact, as evidenced by a few tricks we
picked up from the face-painting establishment this week. Below, a purple
primer, should you want to start practicing for autumn now.

Walk the Line
Backstage at Narciso Rodriguez, Dick Page incorporated the shade in
eyeliner form, dipping into Shiseido’s forthcoming Shimmering Cream Eye
Color in Purple Dawn with an angled brush, scrawling a thin line close to
models’ lash lines, and blending it with a similarly creamy pigment in
black. The pro tip? Shiseido’s Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment,
which Page smudged over both lines to intermingle the colors and leave a
“greasy” finish.

At Malandrino, makeup artist Gato added hints of shimmering lilac and
mauve to his “seventies Parisian girl” smoky eye for a bit of “freshness
mixed with sophistication.” Using Maybelline Eye Studio Silk Eyeshadow
Quads in Pink Persuasion and Purple Drama, Gato diffused the darker
colors of the palettes across lids for a sultry effect, “just touching” a
mix of the two purple pans from each compact on the top as a finishing
touch to relay the idea of effortless, Saint-Germain-des-Prés cool.

Inside Information

The lasting impression of the makeup at Altuzarra was definitely the
super-graphic, silvery brown eye. But the reason models’ eyes popped so
much had less to do with the metallic triangle Tom Pecheux drew on the
inner corners and more to do with a little thing called MAC Pro
Chromagraphic Pencil in Rich Purple. “It looks amazing with green, blue,
and hazel eyes,” Pecheux said of the raisin color he dragged along the
inner rims of models’ eyes, eschewing the black or white pencils you
typically see in similar situations.
