Go backstage at Paris fashion week and get the Look of Balmain by makeup artist Tom Pecheux and hair stylist Sam McKnight.  Olivier Rousteing’s fall 2013 collection for Balmain was electrifying – the broad shouldered jackets and dresses were full of embellishments and bold color so the beauty look was natural.

As Sam McKnight admitted backstage “the look of Balmain is a lot tougher this season”.  Slicked back, masculine hair gave the models a powerful rock and roll edge.  Makeup artist Tom Pecheux gave the models matte skin and well groomed stronger eyebrows – a look that has become a real trend for fall 2013.  Check out our Balmain Fall 2013 Backstage photo gallery here now.
