Milan Fashion Week Fall 2013: Backstage at MaxMara with Tom Pecheux

The "face"—inspiration for the MaxMara Fall 2013 show.

I met up with top M.A.C makeup artist Tom Pecheux backstage at MaxMara just before the models hit the runway.

What's the inspiration behind this look? There's no inspiration really, we wanted to create a fantasy with makeup. We wanted to play with it-- the clothes are full on—a lot of clothes, a lot of material, it's a mix of  sport and casual. I wanted to create something fantastic to go with it. I didn't want the girl to disappear under the big clothes-- that's why we went with a pop of colour.

Can you describe it? Blue and burgundy are the colours we used, nothing else. No mascara, no eyebrows—just two stripes on the eye. We used MAC purple fusion on the eyelid, and a mix of Au Naturel and Style Apparent on the lips. I sculpted the foundation with finger tips to achieve a natural look, and brushed it with an invisible powder to make it completely matte. We didn't use any blush or contour.

So the focus was beautiful skin? No, we wanted to do ugly skin. [Laughs]. Ugly skin, ugly hair, ugly show. [Laughs] No, of course, always beautiful, well-hydrated skin. Who is this woman? She's definitely a girl who loves fashion and comfort. The clothes look very comfortable. Very chic, sport feeling-- playing with layers and fashion. The clothes are monochromatic, the silhouettes are nude, grey and black—that's why there's colour on the face.
