For Rag & Bone, the look wasn’t about reinventing the girl, but doing something different.
Guido Palau working with Redken kept the hair simple, fresh, yet refined. “The girl is always very cool, always very downtown,” said Palau. “But you can only go so far on that.” First, he washed the hair and applied Satinwear 02 throughout. After letting it dry naturally to achieve texture, he created a center part and emphasized the top of the head by keeping the hair flat and appearing wet. Tucking the hair behind the ears, he finished the top with 23 Forceful Hairspray. The bottom was left untouched so from the highest to the lowest point there was a bit of contrast.
Working with Revlon, Gucci Westman was set on keeping the lip as the focal point. “The orange lip was a cool departure for the first-ever lip color at Rag & Bone,” said Westman. “The [pastel] clothes called for a bright pop.” Keeping the skin luminous, she began by applying PhotoReady BB Cream and adding Skinlights Face Illuminator in Pink Light on the cheeks. The eyes were kept neutral, as Westman applied ColorStay shadow in Charcoal, Onyx and Cocoa and then wiped it off. She finished the eye with ColorStay Liquid Liner in Black and filled in the brows depending on the model’s hair color with the ColorStay Brow Pencil. Westman completed the look by applying Super Lustrous Lipstick in Carnival and layering ColorBurst Matte Balm in Mischievous.
Not taking away from the makeup or hair, manicurist Jin Soon applied two coats of Revlon Nail Enamel in Sheer Sweetie. “They didn’t want to do much contrast,” said Soon, “so this complements the makeup.”
