Runway Beauty: Behnaz Sarafpour

Beachy, natural, Brigitte Bardot-esque style ruled the day at Behnaz Sarafpour this season!

I'm loving this look. It's sexy, wearable, and in perfect harmony with Behnaz's collection. Lancome's Gucci Westman started this "summery, healthy" face by using Lancome Star Bronzer Poudre Soleil in Bronze Dore to bring a natural warmth to the face. Cheekbones were accented with Magique Blush in light pink Subtle Fluff, with a pop of brighter Peach Melba in the center of the cheek.

The lip is where it really gets interesting. Westman used a brow pencil - Le Crayon Poudre in Natural Blonde - to define the lips, and then topped with Juicy Tubes in Pure (clear) for a polished, nude mouth.

Eyes were lined with liquid Artliner in Noir, and then smudged with a bit of the same clear Juicy Tubes gloss for a "wet, undone" look.

I recall Kevyn Aucoin using this technique on Cher in one of his books (he used Vaseline, which had a similar effect). It's hard to pull off in "real life" because it doesn't last long, but for photos it's gorgeous!
