PARIS — “Albert [Kriemler] likes the women to look really beautiful,” said makeup artist Diane Kendal, referring to Akris’ creative director, backstage before the label’s show. “So we’re just doing a really fresh, simple look.”
That involved models’ skin tone being evened out and a blush applied “to give off a really healthy glow,” she said. “We’re filling in eyebrows — giving them a really gorgeous shape — and then we are using a brown and a gray grease paint [from MAC Cosmetics], very lightly on the lid.”
Close to models’ lashes, Kendal applied a thin, black cream liner, which was visible through the thin netting worn over their eyes at the show.
Given Kriemler’s penchant for “minimal hair,” hairstylist Guido Palau said he parted models’ hair to the side and crafted a little knot at the back of their heads. Palau used Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam and Fashion Works 12 Versatile Working Spray.
