The hair, the eyes, the brows, the face. It was a total look at Marc Jacobs when the beauty met the clothing. Backstage Guido Palau said it best when he told us, “The whole thing in the end is like an illustration come to life. Everything matches.”

Face: “We based the makeup on the colors of the fabrics and the textures of the fabrics. The makeup overall is very matte.”

Eyes: “The idea is to really accentuate the eyelid. It’s kind of like the Greek statutes.”

Brows: “In Vogue covers from the 60s when the hairdresser would match the eyebrows to the hair color. I always loved that. It has a very soft feeling to it.”

Hair cut: “The shape was inspired by old Jessica Lange pictures, Polly Mellen with that bob. That simple idea of American hair.”

Hair color: “We wanted shades of hair where you couldn’t quite see what the color was. They are almost old lady colors. The idea is not for them to be electric.”

I think about my makeup in relation to what I’m wearing but really treating it like an accessory feels fresh. I might not wear blue eyeshadow with a blue shirt (although thanks to the 12 color eyeshadow palette I owned in middle school, I did that very well), but I do ask whether or not a cat eye will go with that dress or if a red lip is too much with that leopard print coat.

I am looking at my nails on my keyboard as I type this and wondering if they really accessorize my plaid pajama pants…

Do you look at beauty as an accessory to your look or does it stand on it’s own?
