PARIS Spring 2004

The look is polished, and slightly glam. Skin is dewy; not matte, but not too much shine; it's difficult to look glamorous when you look greasy. Deep red lips have given way to lighter, brighter shades; like the way your lips turn when you've been eating fresh raspberries...Still not too much blush, just enough to define cheeks, but not flushed. Eyes can be metallic for daytime. A silver or gold wash of shimmer over the eyes looks very modern and brightens up any face, but make sure it's sheer- lest you look like you didn't take off all your party make-up from the night before...In a recent Fashionlines issue, our Christine mentioned an artist had used a white pencil liner to liven up the eyes and how great it looked in the photos. May I make a suggestion? The White Liquid Shimmer from the Kevyn Aucoin line. I've noticed far too often people copying things seen in magazines from editorials or runway shows. If you are a 17 year old Brazilian girl, 5'11, stunning face and body, strutting around in Dolce & Gabbana, you might get away with it on the street. But most of us aren't, and if you don't practice a little, that white around the eyes can look more like something from the Staples catalog than Henri Bendel...The White Liquid Shimmer is lightly shimmered white-gold that is great for highlighting the inside of the eye, just in the corners or all around. Anyone can easily use this and look fresh and fabulous!
