So far this is a very minimalist New York Fashion Makeup Week. From Altuzarra to Fendi, clean, warm, radiant skin has always been our mission, and makeup artist Pat McGrath describes this look as “sublime skin meets minimal mainstream.” There’s a reason for this minimalist aesthetic, suggests Diane Kendal. “Every show I’ve done this week has been around the nineties,” the makeup artist revealed backstage at Tory Burch tonight, where the instructions were roughly the same. “It’s the kind of skin that’s really clean, super, super moist and glowing, or has highlights in certain places,” Kendall continued, citing era-specific photography like Mario Sorenti and David Sims The highly recognizable look that the teacher prefers. But there’s a different ’90s beauty archetype—the kind favored by designers like Helmut Lang and Martin Margiela, where there’s something “probably not everyone has, bad lip color, or There’s something in the eye”—that’s how Kendal leaned forward for Burch’s spring show, with a chunky, silver, shimmering cat’s eye as a unique statement.
