(Lindsay Schallon/StyleBistro) Here's the sketch MAC makeup artist Maud Laceppe created for the Vivienne Tam 2013 fall showVivienne Tam
's collection spanned three decades, '70 punk clothes, totally '80s hair (think rocker fringe), and when it came to the makeup, it was all about the '90s — dark, vampy lips with sharply lined eyes. (Lindsay Schallon/StyleBistro)
"This season, I'm really obsessed with lips and the nineties," MAC makeup artist Maud Laceppe
To get the grungy-glam lips, Laceppe first outlined the them with the "Currant" Lip Pencil
— an essential, she said, for any dark lip color to prevent feathering. Then she mixed two hues from MAC's matte-finish Lipmix
collection, "Black" and "Burgundy."
"We wanted to have an edgy style, but in a sophisticated way," she said. "It's still a very elegant and chic look. So we went a little more burgundy than black. It has the same intensity, but it's more elegant."(Photo by ImaxTree) Hair backstage at Vivienne Tam
The hair team, on the otherhand, went full out '80s with a faux-fringed updo — a look, we'll admit, isn't the most wearable thing in the world (unless you're in a band, in which case we say, "Rock on!"). However
, we're obsessed with chignon-like twist in the back!
You can replicate Tresemme stylist Jeanie Syfu
's creation by adding Tresemme Keratin Smooth Serum
to a sleek ponytail. Then, twist the pony up toward the hairline (securing with pins as you go) and fasten an elastic at the top. For a variation on the look, pin the ends down and around.
As for the collection, we'll leave you with this black wool crepe sleeveless shift with a leather bullet holder
along the chest. Of all Tam's pieces — which also drew inspiration from political evolution and Pop Art — this was the one to cause a collective gasp amongst the crowd:
