New Wave French films from the Sixties set the scene at Anna Sui.
“The main inspiration is a strong face,” said Pat McGrath for Cover Girl. Creating a Sixties cat eye, she applied a black pencil along the eyelid. She exaggerated the graphic shape by increasing the width and leaving the tip about a half-inch from the brow. On the bottom lash line, she again used a black pencil to generate a dotted line. “Looking at the colors in the collection, they were very rich,” said McGrath. “Anna wanted a monochromatic face.” To top off the lip, McGrath applied a blush-colored gloss.
“We found a picture of Catherine Deneuve from the Sixties,” said Garren of Garren New York Salon. “She used to pull her hair up into a ponytail, then she would tease it and then she would flip it. So we said how do we want to do this differently?” Pulling the hair back into a ponytail and rolling it under into a big bouffant was Garren’s interpretation of Deneuve’s look. “It looks fresh and young,” said Garren, “and it gives it that Sixties vibe.” The girls with shorter hair were given full frontal bangs and hair was teased at the crown.
To finish, nails were completed with a golden glitter shade from Anna Sui’s cosmetic line.
