Bus Stop Make Up at Marc by Marc Jacobs

Smudges and headscarves steal the show


By Bella Blissett

No matter what else happens at NYFW, the Marc by Marc Jacobs show can always be replied upon to bring some fun to the party. And from the minute we spied 18 year-old Bosnian model, Amra Cerkezovic curled up outside the backstage entrance reading Blind Woman Sleeping Willow by Haruki Murakami and rocking a multicoloured headscarf, we knew Spring Summer 13 would be no exception.


"This is make-up that you'd apply at a bus stop - it doesn't matter if it looks a bit rubbish," said Shiseido Artistic Director, Dick Page backstage in the melee.


Creating a "punky, scrubby" vibe, he encircled the eye with Shiseido's Shimmering Cream Eye Shadows in Sable BR709 and Caviar BK912, bypassed blush and added a touch of pinky rose for a "nothing-y lip".

Partner in crime, Guido styled hair that played second fiddle to the headscarf. Prepping it with Redken Guts 10, he whisked it up in a haphazard way - as if the girls had done it themselves - before tying this punky, cool, kooky look up with a twist of a silken scarf.
