Realized together with Catherine Baudet, BIBA’s Beauty Editor in Chief, this collab’ gave carte blanche to four talents from the Calliste agency: Marie Duhart, Fred Farrugia, Lili Choi and Gregoris. Over a one month period, these high flying artists are going to show you how to appropriate the season’s strongest trends.
To finish this series of 4 trends in style, this week we welcome the brilliant Gregoris Pyrylis who talks about his look inspired by the color gold. A very on trend color that works best when used in little touches, he has fun with it, using it with amazing precision to create a fabulously wearable look.
A huge thank you to Catherine Baudet for her writer up in BIBA…
Gold by Gregoris Pyrpylis
“Greek make up artist Gregoris Pyrpylis, aged 30, is skincare ambassador for the brand Bioderma but he’s also the favorite make up artist of Leïla Bekti and Olivier Rousteing. Precise, unfussy and ultra-modern, this make up artist who studied under the great Tom Pecheux advocates… fun! This is why he has chosen gold as his trend: “If you love scandalously expensive jewelry but you cannot afford it, embrace glitter. And above all, have fun!” Advice to be followed to the letter.
Wearing gold jewels
Wearing gold without looking too overdressed is one of the major trends this spring. Gregoris tells us that to master this delicate trend “you have to think of it as just little touches (much like wearing a jewel). It’s a color that is all the more interesting as the extraordinary brilliance it brings to the face is inversely proportional to the effort needed to create it”.
Gregoris’s realization: I’m using a gold crème eyeshadow on the beautiful Jak Bueno (from Elite Agency). I apply it with a brush, to the inner and outer corners of the eye. Then I lightly tap the eyeshadow with my fingers so it sticks really well. Next I dip my brush into a pot of ultra fine gold glitter and I push the glitter into the skin on top of the crème. To create a contrast with the eyes, I leave the face nude, just unifying the skin color with a foundation and well moisturized lips.
Version 2: Gregoris has developed his look, adding over the top of the gold a matte black eyeliner, another key trend. With this kind of statement, “we add maximum sex-appeal. Even more so because the black/gold combo is the incarnation of luxury and sensuality. We can exaggerate the line, like in the image, or create a more classic eyeliner shape: this is above all an inspiration. The idea is to combine contrasting elements: matte and gloss, black and gold, graphic and blurred. For an ultra cool look, wear this make-up with a t-shirt rather than a sequined dress (unless you want to look like a disco ball!). (You can find the tutorial for this look on bycalliste.com).”
