Romy Soleimani, lead MAC makeup artist, updated a vintage winged eye and porcelain complexion to complement Adam Lippes’ fall 2011 collection. “There is a feeling of outdoor freshness,” said Soleimani, who created a baby-doll cheek with MAC cream blush in shades Posey and Laid Back. “I like for skin to feel alive.”
Lips were muted out with Lip Erase and lashes were coated with Haute & Naught Mascara. “The eyes have a Twenties and Thirties sophistication.”
Hair, styled by Diego Da Silva for Redken, was first prepped with Fashion Work and Rootful 06 for shape and volume. “It complements the collection’s Native American and country influences,” said Da Silva. “The hair couldn’t be too elegant, it needed some earthiness to it.” Da Silva smoothed back strands with a hair brush sprayed with hair spray. It was then twisted in the back into a sleek pony, sprayed down with Wool Shake for texture and a matte finish. “We are leaving the flyways,” said Da Silva. “The ADAM girl has some edginess to her.” Nails, which were filed short and squared, were coated with scarlet Deborah Lippman shade Just Walk Away Renee and fast-drying, shiny top coat Addicted to Speed.
