MILAN — “Just a touch of Rosetti,” makeup artist Pat McGrath said about the dark, romantic looks at Gucci, inspired by the strong, red-haired muses of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s 19th-century oil paintings.
Cheeks were spared blush. Cover Girl & Olay Tone Rehab 2 in 1 Foundation gave a polished, natural complexion. Bleached eyebrows set off eyes, swept in nude brown powder, lined in Cover Girl Queen Collection Eye Liner and finished with Cover Girl Lash Blast 24 HR Mascara in black. “One hit of mascara on the top lashes only,” noted McGrath.
Cover Girl Queen Collection Lipcolor in Fine Wine gave a deep-red lip with a center dab of Queen Collection’s Hot Lipcolor.
Hairstylist Luigi Murenu made soft waves on long hair that was padded with extensions. He added John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse and Luxurious Volume Thickening Blow Dry Spray to lift the roots and add texture.
After giving the girls an imperfect center-part, hair from the sides of the face was loosely twisted and secured at the back of the head with an abstract, bow-shaped clip of jeweled black stones designed by Frida Giannini for the show.
