How-to: The fuchsia lips and flushed cheeks at Oscar de la Renta S/S ’13

Oscar de la Renta - Spring 2013 makeup

The look:

Suede-matte fuchsia lips with contoured skin and flushed cheeks.

The inspiration:

“I was really inspired by Keith Haring meets Holly Golightly; it’s a little bit naughty meets nice. I wanted to create a look that was cool and luxurious, just like the clothing. I kept the face simple and fresh, applying layers of sheer texture and then adding a subtle flush to the cheek, as the focus of this look was the lip. For the lip I mixed three different lip products together and applied all with my fingers to give it a bit of a suede finish and keep it looking matte.”—Gucci Westman, global artistic director for Revlon.
