Mario Testino’s first U.S. exhibit opened last weekend at the Museum of Fine Art, Boston
“She didn’t have a mirror or anything in front of her, just a palette of makeup. I asked her to put her finger on the blue and touch her eye, then put her finger on the red and touch her mouth…
Being a fashion photographer, we deal with making people look the best they can, all the time, by enhancing their beauty. But this was about embracing the beauty inside of a person, to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is her eyes and her gaze that control the image.” – Mario Testino
So Devin, while putting a finger on the blue and touching our eyes may not be the makeup application we are looking for, embracing the beauty inside us is always a great application!
But to be honest, the beauty inside always looks great with a red lip!
To recreate bold red lips at home follow Garance Doré as she embraces the secret to intense lips at Rochas.
Step Three: With the lighter color define your lips focusing on the center of your mouth.
Step Four: Add a pinker pig-mental blush to your lips for a matte look! (I prefer Nars blush in Outlaw.)
Enjoy the Intensity!
