Subtle’s not a word that springs easily to mind when Betsey Johnson’s mentioned. Kitsch; tacky; screamingly bright – oh yeah, I can go for all of those in conjunction with one of fashion’s funnest designers. So it was a bit of a surprise to clock the beauty looks Maybelline dreamed up for her recent New York Fashion week show.
Is Ms Johnson finally growing up? Say it ain’t so!
Nah – don’t think so: “We had a lot of fun with the beauty look at Betsey Johnson. We set out to capture Betsey’s vision of a ‘dolled up, 1960s Twiggy.’ The makeup is glamorous and feminine – the perfect complement to Betsey’s flirty collection,” was the verdict from Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer, who worked on the look.
