Modern Intensity at KAUFMANFRANCO
Kristi Matamoros for Kevyn Aucoin, like many makeup artists, focused on the 90s. Taking a Helmut Lang minimalist approach, her look was reminiscent of Kate Moss – polished and pulled together. Creating a modern brown smoky eye paired with a few coats of mascara for soft, fluffy lashes, Matamoros got our attention. By staying away from heavy black, this sometimes smoldering look had a chic wearable effect without losing its intensity.
The lips were kept natural to not distract from the eyes. Matamoros took Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Medium by Kevyn Aucoin, which she called “the perfect pinky nude” for a natural pink lip.
Nails were kept clean in Morgan Taylor’s Birthday Suit, a warm neutral stone gray which complemented KAUFMANFRANCO’s collection. Love the color but interested in jazzing it up? Gina Edwards, nail artist at Morgan Taylor, recommends adding an accent nail in black and white to have a little fun with this neutral gray.
