New York City


Backstage with Sephora at Dennis Basso

20 September 2010

Daily Vogue was lucky enough to talk to key make-up artist Kabuki about creating the look at Dennis Basso SS 2011 collection. This season Dennis Basso designed for an affluent, but younger woman: “She loves to go out, She travels. She does special occasion. No pants.”

For those used to the classic smoky make-up usually seen on the runway at Dennis Basso, S/S 2011 surprises – pleasantly.

“I added a modern twist to a classic Audrey Hepburn eye and was inspired by the futuristic youthful cut on the clothes from the collection”, explained key make-up artist Kabuki.

Dennis Basso SS2011While the skin was polished with a light foundation (Make Up For Ever HD Foundation), lips nude and sheer (Sephora Lipstick Palette – Dolce Nude 20, Romantic Rose 18; Sephora Ultra shine lip gloss – Perfect Nude 20), the eyes stole the show – lined with Sephora Smoky Creme Liner in matte cobalt blue, turquoise and orange. Segments of false lashes and lots of mascara were applied so the color of the liner wouldn’t be overpowering. The result: a young, fun, but polished and elegant wide-eyed pixie with flashes of color.
Other products used to complete the look: for the face – Givenchy Mister Light, Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder, Sephora Blush Me (Peche Tendre 04); for the eyes – Givenchy Mister Light, Sephora Nano Eyeliner (Golden Sand 07), Sephora Mono eyeshadow (Coffee Brown), Sephora Mono eyeshadow (City Fog), Make Up For Ever False Lashes, Givenchy Eyebrow Show Pencil, Make Up For Ever Concealer Pencil.

Maybe the experts are right and the dresses were not a great success, but the make-up was …unforgettable
