New York Fashion Week: Backstage with M.A.C. Artist Gordon Espinet for Behnaz Sarafpour…

20-year M.A.C. Artist extraordinaire Gordon Espinet was responsible for bringing to life a Brigitte Bardot-inspired look to the runway for designer Behnaz Sarafpour’s fall season reveals.

Espinet described the look as “luminous,” “skin care-y,”  “just left the spa.”  Avoid matte and overdone this fall.  Prep face with primer and concealer, then top with a light dusting of powder and contour the cheeks.  Espinet used an amazing palette of eye shadows, to be revealed this fall, including vanillas and beiges.

Use beige on outer half of the eye, dust a lighter color on the inner-eye, near tear duct.  Every woman should have M.A.C’s Wonder Woman Penultimate Eye Liner, in her make-up bag.  Line the top lid until you reach the end of the eye.   Top with a coat of black mascara on top and bottom.   Finish with M.A.C.’s Tanorama a platinum, beige lipstick which gives lips a light layer of shine.  The finished look is luminous, natural and showcases the skin, which is a grand departure from the matte looks of previous seasons.
