MILAN — “Done and then broken down; [the] hair’s a bit disheveled but still glamorous,” said hairstylist James Pecis backstage at Blumarine. He described muse-model Lara Stone as “a modern-day Brigitte Bardot — a sexy woman with sexy hair.”
To refine models’ hair texture, their tresses were prepped from the roots to the middle with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream. After, to maximize volume, alternating sections of hair were set with a large-sized curling iron, then brushed, misted with hairspray and blown out.
The center-parted look was “completely dry with lots of volume and a touch of rock ‘n’ roll,” said Pecis.
Makeup artist Tom Pecheux described the look he conceived as “a naughty girl with manners, like Courtney Love’s granddaughter.”
Using MAC Cosmetics, he massaged and moisturized models’ faces, then applied a light layer of Face and Body Foundation, followed by Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder on the T-zone. Eyelids were given a thin layer of creamy gold eye shadow topped with dabs of Night Light Pigment in shimmery pink, gold and silver. Eyelashes were brushed with Haute and Naughty Too Black Lash mascara, while mouths got a coat of Casual Colour Lip and Cheek Colour in Keep It Loose.
“It’s very kissable and very approachable,” said Pecheux of the beige-nude, coral shade he used.
MAC’s senior artist Keri Blair painted models’ finger- and toenails in Thimbleweed Nail Lacquer, an opaque, nude shade launching in spring 2014.
