Get The Look: Duckie Brown at NYFW Spring/Summer 2015


Ralph Siciliano, key makeup artist for Duckie Brown's fashion shows, talks model grooming

"The look for the show is all about making the boys look like better versions of themselves. Very clean, polished skin with a twist--and that twist is a high dewy shine on the cheekbones, so that when they're walking down the runway you get a subtle glow."

"Most of the boys have really nice skin, so we're using EvolutionMan products to polish the skin. Starting with the Conceal & Treat concealer ($22) as needed, then matte out with powder. We use the line's Revitalize Eye Gel ($30) where needed, if the guys have bags under their eyes or puffiness. We finish the look off with Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream ($21, 1.7oz), which is a Vaseline-like gel, at the plane of the cheeks. That sets it and gives it a really high shine while everything else is really matte. No heavy grooming--we want the boys to be really natural so they have their individuality."

"To get the look at home, it's all about pulling back 50%. Take Vaseline if you have it in your medicine cabinet and dab just a little bit at the high point of the cheeks. But beware of not putting on too much or you'll look sweaty! If you don't have powder, use facial blotting papers ($2.25, at Muji) around your T-zone and eyes to matte everything out. It's all about a happy contrast. A little coverage here and there doesn't hurt!"
