Backstage Beauty: Vivid Makeup At Richard Chai Love

Talk about eye-candy. Spring's bright color palette made a welcome appearance at Richard Chai's spring '12 show, featuring the unexpected pairing of orange eyeshadow with bright-blue lips and the more wearable cotton-candy pink lids or violet-hued kissers. Lead makeup artist James Kaliardos used MAC to create the candy-colored look—and clearly took a cue from the color wheel. We think the blue lips are a little too blue-raspberry-popsicle for every day, but we predict purple puckers will be popping up all over this fall...and beyond.
