“Tarot cards and James Bond girls,” said makeup artist Lisa Butler of her inspiration for the look backstage at Emilio Pucci, nodding loosely to the 1973 classic Live and Let Die. Given the bodacious casting of designer Peter Dundas’s model lineup, the reference made sense. To get his women into character, Butler was keeping the skin clean, swirling a cinnamon pigment around the eyes and onto the cheekbones “for a bit of warmth,” and brushing the brows up straight. And while real girls sitting front row might appreciate a healthy glow, we’re betting they’ll be more interested in how to recreate the Pucci pink lip color she was mixing for the runway. According to Butler, the hue was a cross between “an old-fashioned seventies” red and a modern coral that was hand-blended using two iconic MAC shades in Lady Danger and On Hold, then dabbed lightly on the center of the lip. Much like Dundas’s bombshell model army and his body-conscious fall collection, it sounds like guaranteed power-pairing in the making.
