PARIS — In creating the look for Jean Paul Gaultier’s fall 2012 show, makeup artist Stephane Marais had in mind “glam women going out in the Eighties. They have no fear. They can assume anything,” he said. “They feel chic.”
On eyelids, Marais applied a black liquid liner followed by grease paint. “So it melts, it’s rough,” he explained. “But it looks quite amazing.”
Using a small brush, Marais then spread out the color, making it looked worn and destroyed. Otherwise, models’ skin and mouths were left natural.
Hairstylist Guido Palau crafted coifs involving long hair extensions, stick-straight tresses and colored sprays on the top of heads.
“When you have that very long length of hair uncut, it feels very cool. And it’s very androgynous, in a funny way,” he said.
Key Sebastian products Palau used included Iron Silk 07 Ultra-Straightening Spray, Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist, Fashion Work 12 Working Spray and Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray.
