As the label behind fashion’s favorite brocade bustiers and dreamy duster coats, Brock Collection has come to be synonymous with a certain refined and romantic glamour. It might come as a surprise, then, that this season the secret weapon in every Brock girl’s beauty arsenal wasn’t a face-filtering foundation or a supercharged highlighter, but rather a bold, black lipstick applied at eye-level.
“I’m doing a bushy ‘Brooke Shields’ brow,” makeup artist Gucci Westman said backstage as she dipped a small angled brush in an opaque onyx shade from Lipstick Queen before painting individual strokes onto model Marine Deleeuw’s arches—a subversive, albeit subtle move that allows for more precision than a typical pencil or powder. Also, thanks to the glossy texture, “it doesn’t feel too makeup-y,” she added while topping off the face framers with a spoolie coated in Westman Atelier’s light-catching Lit Up Highlight Stick. The result was a set of strong, sheen-enhanced statement brows that gave an enticing edge to spring 2020’s sweeping floral frocks and larger-than-life bow embellishments. #BrockBabes, welcome to the dark side.
