Chris Benz goes Mad Men for Resort

Many designers are showing resort collections now. Some of these shows bring us some of the nicest clothes and while they don't get as much attention as other shows, they're worth looking at.

Chris Benz seemed channel the Mad Men look for hair and makeup at his show. Makeup artist Daniel Martin calls it “1950's Californian Lady-of-Leisure" which places it before Mad Men, but the look carried over into the early 60's as well. Either way , it looks smashing on the model.

What was used :

Fuchsia lips paired with eyes that were lined on top (“just don’t call it a cat eye,” says Daniel) finished with sculpted cheeks and full, shaped brows.

To create the look, Daniel used Lancôme’s new Teint Idole Fresh Wear Foundation, Blush Subtil in Mauve Coquette and Tropiques Minérale Bronzer in Natural Sunkiss.

For the eyes, Daniel lined with Artliner in Noir and topped lashes with Hypnôse Mascara. The bright lips are courtesy of Le Crayon in Berry (all over the lip) topped with Color Fever Lipstick in Rock Icon Fuchsia.
