Dick Page & Shiseido for Marc by Marc Jacobs

Dick Page is one of THE master makeup gurus of our time. He works for and with Shiseido and  provided the makeup for several shows this past fashion week in NY. The look here is for the Marc by Marc Jacobs show and illustrates a trend we have seen a lot of  for next season- the orange lip. Highlighted are also some new Shiseido products that are coming soon.



- “Smooth, matte skin”

- Dick applied a light wash of new Shiseido Makeup Perfect Refining Foundation (launching February 2011) to even the skin tone and to cover up redness or blemishes.

- Dick then applied Shiseido Makeup Natural Finish Cream Concealer where extra coverage was needed; concealer was not applied near the eyes.

-Next, Dick applied a dusting of Shiseido Makeup Translucent Loose Powder all over the skin, to achieve a matte finish.

-To create rosy cheeks, Dick applied a combination of Shiseido Makeup  Luminizing Satin Face Colors in Orchid (RD401), Tea Rose (RS302), Petal
(RD103) and Carnation (PK304) high on the cheekbones and close to the eye area; the combination of colors depended on the natural skintone.



- “Dewy, melting color”

-To create a dewy effect, Dick applied Shiseido Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment on the eyelids, and a trace under the lower lash line.

-Next, Dick sketched right into the upper and lower lash lines with the Shiseido Makeup Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Black (BK901); application was sketched and looked “scrubby.”

-Dick then applied a second light application of the Shiseido Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment over the eyeliner to give a “melting” effect.



- “Matte, intense lips”

- To create a smooth surface, Dick prepped the lips with Shiseido Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment; lips were thoroughly blotted with a tissue to remove excess product.

- Next, Dick applied Shiseido Makeup Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Day Lily OR418) and again blotted the lips with a tissue to remove excess product.

- Dick then applied a thin layer of Shiseido Makeup Translucent Loose Powder under the lower lip line to catch excess product.

-Then with a clean fluffy brush, Dick applied an orange high-pigment powder (a working lab prototype for a potential new Shiseido product) over the lipstick to intensify the color.

Shiseido is a great company for this look with their origins steming in Asia. Most people don't realize how long they have been around since they started marketing in the US in the late 1960's.
