PARIS — When crafting the beauty look for Carven’s fall 2014 show here, hairstylist James Pecis and makeup artist Nina Haverkamp imagined a European woman from the Forties.
“She’s supposed to be like a gallerist, more of an intellectual,” said Pecis, who gave models a deep side part and a slight wave on one side “that almost doesn’t look intentional.”
Once that wave was put in, Pecis used an elastic thread to literally sew tresses in place. Working with L’Oréal Professionnel products, he applied Super Dust and Volume Lift from Tecni.Art to get two different textures. Then on the ends of hair, Pecis spritzed some Infinium hairspray.
Haverkamp emphasized eyebrows. “They’re very shiny — it’s like car shiny, really,” she said.
Key products for this were Kryolan’s Ice Look stage makeup that was then coated with eye gloss as a fixer.
On eyelids, Haverkamp applied a creamy taupe hue.
