Beauty at the Phillip Lim showing channeled Blondie’s Debbie Harry. Hairstyling was led by Odile Gilbert for Phyto. “We start with a middle part and lifting up the roots,” said Gilbert.
Gilbert used Phyto Professionals Intense Volume Mousse for base hold, then used a curling iron to create waves, which were brushed out for a soft finish. Models flipped their heads over and roots were infused with heat-activated root lifter, Phyto Volume Actif Volumizer, then tousled while upside down, for additional volume. Models with shorter hair were given an “umbrella” shape. “It’s fluffy,” said Gilbert. “It’s big but it moves.” Workable Holding Spray finished off the look.
Makeup, created by Lisa Butler for Nars Cosmetics, had a feeling of “disco punk” and “youthful rebellion.” Lips were sheer and featured a new Nars shade, launching for fall, called Bangkok Pure Matte, which will be part of a whole new collection. Complexions were matte everywhere but the cheekbone, which was highlighted with Nars Multiple in Luxor. Faces were overall “ethereal” and “three dimensional.”
A new blush shade called Doucer provided a “soft contouring pink” and eyes were lined with eyeliner in blue-gray London.
Nails, manicured by CND, were coated in Creamy Cameo, and opaque peachy pink shade. Toes were given an updated French tip with Gold Chrome on the ends.
