At Carolina Herrera, Orlando Pita, working with Biosilk at the show, created elaborate updos built around pieces of net stuffing.
“We’re making little flowers of hair on the top [after wrapping hair around the stuffing] and then a band of hair around that,” he explained. Girls with shorter hair had hairpieces wrapped around the stuffing. “It sort of mimics the four or five hats in the show.” Key products, he said, were a Biosilk serum, which was applied to the hair comprising the rosettes of hair on top, and plenty of Biosilk Finishing Firm Hold Spray.
Diane Kendal, working with MAC Cosmetics at the show, evened out the skin tone with a sheer MAC Cosmetics foundation before adding a hint of peach blush to the apple of the cheek and blending out. She used two highlighters on the top of the cheekbone and underneath the brow bone to catch the light, and defined brows with a slight arch, filling them in and brushing them out. From the eyelid to the brow, she added a shimmery beige MAC Cosmetics eye shadow and a slightly darker beige to contour. Next came black cream liner at the lash line and a darker shadow over the beiges to “make it a bit darker and a little bit smoky.” She eschewed mascara and used a pink MAC Cosmetics lipstick, applied with a brush and then wiped off with a tissue for “a very muted, soft stain.”
Michelle Saunders, working with Essie at the show, opted for the brand’s most popular shade — Ballet Slippers, a soft pink. After adding First Base base coat to fingernails and toenails, she added two layers of Ballet Slippers and finished with Good to Go top coat. “It’s classic and looks good on all skin tones,” she said of the choice.
