Red Velvet Lips As Seen at Jason Wu

"I think beauty's becoming less about piling on, and more about what's underneath," said the makeup artist Yadim about his minimalist-inspired beauty look for Jason Wu's spring/summer 2016 collection. Don't let the red lips fool you.




Beyond that one standout feature, faces were clean — literally. "We didn't use any foundation, just a tiny bit of concealer where they needed it," he went on. Same goes for blush (none) and mascara (transparent), which played to Wu's particular kind of "polished" girl this season. Moments before curtain call, Yadim applied a ruby red powder pigment over a layer of Maybelline's Vivid Matte Liquid in Rebel Red, for a deep, velvety appearance and texture — and a timeless, low-maintenance look for any season.
