LONDON — “The inspiration is that we’re not following a trend,” said L’Oréal Paris’ Val Garland. “She’s ethereal, alien looking and a little boyish at the same time so, in the end, she looks like a statue,” the makeup artist said.
Eyes were brushed with flesh-toned shadows and L’Oréal Lumi Powder, plus gloss over the top for “a really liquid eye,” Garland said. Foundation provided the base for a matt lip that was painted with a Color Riche shade, gloss applied to the cupid’s bow.
For Martin Cullen, hair was all about “alien chic,” too.
“The dresses are so glamorous and back to the old Julian. We really wanted to toughen it up and make it more modern with a stricter hair style,” Cullen said.
He used L’Oréal Paris Invisi’hold gel creating a wet sheen on the head itself so hair looked “almost laminated.”
Locks were gathered into ponytails and secured by bands. Then Cullen snipped the elastics at the last minute, allowing the set gel to hold hair in place.
