Rick Owens - Fall 2012 makeup

The look:

Stamped red lips.

The inspiration:

“The girls are wearing masks, so the stamped red lip is there to remind people that there’s a beautiful woman underneath what is otherwise quite scary.”—Lucia Pieroni for MAC.

The how-to:


1. Lightly apply MAC Studio Finish SPF 15 Concealer only where needed to perfect the skin.

2. Sweep MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder over the skin to set and polish.


1. Lightly groom the brows, but leave them pale.


1. The lips should be completely matte, devoid of lip conditioning.

2. Contour the lip with MAC Lip Pencil in Redd.

3. Blend MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger over the entire lip for a full, red mouth.

4. Dust MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder on a tissue and use it to blot the lips for an intensified matte effect.
