MILAN — Lana Del Rey inspired the Sixties high school prom beauty look at Dsquared2.
Using MAC Cosmetics products, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury created a matte face for models that was powdered down the center and contoured under cheekbones. A beige, bone color was swept onto eyelids and chocolate, and taupe powder was put under eyes for definition, depth and shadow. Blacktrack Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel was thickly used on the top of lids in a feline-eye shape, crowned by a double set of lashes. Black eyeliner was teased out on bottom lids, and eyebrows were made thicker and arched. A flesh-tone lip hue was thickly applied.
Hairstylist Sam McKnight described the retro look he conceived as echoing that of “girl bands from the Fifties and Sixties, like The Shirelles and the early days of The Supremes with a touch of Lana Del Rey.” He used Pantene Pro-V products, such as Volume Mousse and Extra Strong Mousse on damp hair before it was blown dry.
Heavy backcombing created two styles – a bumped-up crown with flat sides and another looking like a pinned-back beehive from the Sixties decorated with a clip designed for the Dsquared2 show.
