There’s no doubt Khaite has functioned like a breath of fresh air for New York Fashion Week. The Fall/Winter 2023 show embodied luxury and sophistication, but with those modern, all-American sensibilities it’s become known for. Creative Director Catherine Holstein has struck a stylish chord, serving up beautifully-constructed, elevated pieces that consistently sell out — no mean feat for a brand only in its seventh year.
With such a discerning aesthetic, it’s unsurprising the brand also kept things simple when it came to the beauty look, skin in particular. Makeup artist Diane Kendal worked exclusively with Noble Panacea to create the luminous skin finish as seen on the runway. Noble Panacea was founded based on research by Sir Fraser Stoddart, who was awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his lifework researching molecular motion. Put simply, his Organic Super Molecular Vessel™ technology functions as a delivery system, enabling active ingredients to effectively penetrate, and transform the skin.
Kendal started with the Exceptional Vitamin-C Booster and Brilliant Prime Radiance Serum to prep the skin, before adding the Brilliant Vibrant Eye Infusion to brighten the eye contour (a fashion week non-negotiable). The finishing step was a layer of the the Brilliant Radiant Resilience Moisturizer. This formula has a softening, velvety-matte texture for a skin-but-better finish.
“I am thrilled to have partnered with Noble Panacea for this season’s Khaite show,” Kendal shared in a press release. “Proper skin prep was so important for this makeup look and Noble Panacea products give the skin that beautiful texture that we were looking for.”
She finished with a softly sculpted eye, nude lip and fluffed brow, all created using NARS makeup. Clean, simple but chic, it was exactly the kind of elevated everyday look we’re striving for (much like Holstein’s clothes).
