BACKSTAGE| Eugene Lin FEB'13

Ahead of the AW13 Euguene Lin Show, Fashion Scout caught up with Toni & Guy, The Body Shop and FTWS to hear about the concept they have created to complement Eugene’s AW13 designs, which are a sequel to his Greek mythology inspired SS13 Collection.

The Body Shop’s Lan Nguyen explained that the make-up aesthetic she has been working on is both severe representing war but soft to personify love. ‘We have used three densities of black fading from the eyelid to the brow, which has been blocked out. We have also introduced a triangle of gold leaf to highlight the rich gold metal in the AW13 Collection’. Face make up was matte and contoured to compliment the dark eyes, with key products including Mineral Finishing Powder and Kohl Liner.

In terms of hair, the style conceptualises a warrior-esq tight braid, high on top of the head accompanied by a low ponytail at the back. Bill from Toni & guy told us that if a female went to war ‘they would not want a strand of hair on their face so they were ready for action!’ – this is the functionality that he has recreated. Nails desgined by Zaida from FTWS were black high gloss with gold tips, using Orly Polish.
