48 | NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2017 | eyelashmag.com Backstage Beauty: THE ATTACHMENT PHASE MAISON MARGIELA HAUTE COUTURE MANISH ARORA JONATHAN SIMKHAI GUCCI JEREMY SCOTT BALMAIN Pearls, pearls, everywhere—nestled in tear ducts, circling eyebrows and cheekbones, resting alongside the bridge of the nose. Transforming faces with 3-D embellishments became a backstage go-to for the season. The aforementioned pearl-bedecked tear ducts at Jonathan Simkhai added a surprise feminine detail for a look meant to "signify a woman's power over a man," says Maybelline lead artist Yadim. Also powerful: the tribal-like pearl designs at Manish Arora that MAC makeup lead Kabuki describes as a type of "ornamentation on a fresh-faced makeup." Never one to shy away from 3-D beauty, Kabuki became a driving force for the season's fi xation with added dimensions, having also glued a single crystal teardrop to a handful of models' cheeks at Jeremy Scott. When embellishments migrated south to the lip, they typically took up every last inch of pout real estate: Witness the jewel-encrusted mouth at Gucci or the foil-enshrouded pout at Maison Margiela Haute Couture (not surprisingly, both designs were created by another 3-D proselytizer, Pat McGrath!). Though decorating faces with stones and foils is a sight to behold, the true test is making the beauty stick. For that, artists came armed with eyelash adhesive or spearmint gum—and the patience to reapply if any ornamentation dislodged.
