Backstage beauty at Altuzarra. "She’s kinda of spooky looking, which is why I love it!" explains makeup artist Tom Pecheux.

Whether it’s
Jason Wu’s “extreme femininity” or Altuzarra’s “fiercely feminine silhouette” the style maven’s fashion and beauty mandate for Fall 2013 is clearly to “take no prisoners!” But that doesn’t mean she’s overly aggressive, explains makeup artist Tom Pecheux, backstage at Altuzarra. “The look is strong—in fact it’s quite spooky, but it’s not aggressive or mean.” He created his spooky muse using a M.A.C creamy charcoal, metallic shadow on the upper eyelid and a raspberry/pink shade under the eye blending it from the outside to the middle and down. “You don’t know if she’s completely mad, or she’s coming back from a great evening out. It’s
Belle de Jour with a touch of [Helmut] Newton.”
