Forties glamour was the name of the beauty game at Carolina Herrera.
Orlando Pita, working with Moroccanoil at the show, devised a vintage-inspired style that was anything but ancient. He began by applying Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection throughout the hair to prepare it for blow-drying, then blew hair out straight (fine-haired models also got a bit of Volumizing Mousse.) Next, he applied Hydrating Styling Cream all over the hair, concentrating it at the roots and top of hair because the look was so close to the top of the head. Next, he created a middle part, creating two sections, then added a third part from behind the ear, up to the crown and down to behind the ear on the other side. After lightly backcombing hair about two inches from the root, he took each front part, rolled it very tightly and pinned the roll at its seam as well as behind the ears. Pita then took strands remaining from the ends of the rolls, twisting and crisscrossing them and pinning them at ear level to create a focal point to secure hair that would be rolled up from the remaining back section. Finally, he raised the back sections slightly above the nape, rolling them tight but a little wider than in the front, then tucked them in and pinned, attacking flyaways with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream. To finish, he spritzed hair with Glimmer Shine Spray for extra luminosity.
Diane Kendal, working with MAC Cosmetics at the show, created classic beauty using foundation, Bare Face blush, a bit of black cream liner and lips in MAC’s Hot Tahiti, a reddish-coral hue. Eyes were opened with a light cream shimmer from lid to brow, with brows defined for emphasis. Nails, keyed by Gina Edwards, were done in Essie’s Ladylike.
