Backstage Beauty: Rag & Bone’s Bitten Lips

The beauty look at Rag & Bone

The beauty look at Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone’s girls have never been one for over-the-top makeup looks. Instead, the downtown duo of Marcus Wainwright and David Neville stick to a fresh face. And more often than not, Gucci Westman, who happens to be married to Neville, is at the helm of the beauty look (and usually wearing a great Rag & Bone outfit while doing it). This year, the brand opted to work with NARS to create a beauty look that brought together a barely-bitten lip with the eye of the season: glossy and glamorous.

“This look is effortless, aspirational and chic while still feeling luxurious and cool,” Gucci Westman said. “The face is feminine and fresh with subtle monochromatic tones complimented by a bitten looking mouth.”

To get the barely-there color, Westman used a combination of Nars’ cult-favorite Satin and  Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, depending on the models’ skin tone. Westman prepped the lips with Bianca Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment and then tapped on different shades for just a hint of color. Think of what you’d do with your favorite super dark lip in the fall to get just a touch of color and use the same technique. For eyes, Westman used a combination of the Copacabana Multiple and Illuminator and topped it off with Triple X Lip Gloss, a trend that we’ve seen all over New York Fashion Week. If you want to recreate the glossy eye at home, make sure to just use the tiniest amount of gloss so you don’t get a slick mess on your lids.
