At Carolina Herrera, Orlando Pita — working with Moroccanoil at the show — created a timeless architectural look. “Carolina wanted to avoid any references to the past,” he said. Pita began by applying Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to the hair, drying it straight on the sides and back with a Moroccanoil Ionic Ceramic brush to create subtle volume. Pita then started taking graduated horizontal half-inch sections starting at the crown, spraying each with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong. Pita then smoothed the hair on the sides and took the top section of hair, directing it toward the back of the head. “Normally, a style like this would have a barrette, but that would be too schoolgirl here,” said Pita. “This is a woman, not a girl.” Pita then finished with a generous application of Luminous Hairspray, adding a light mist of Moroccanoil Frizz Control on the crown area to make sure there were no flyaways.
Diane Kendal, working with MAC Cosmetics, was inspired by Sarah Moon, the Sixties model and photographer, for the makeup. She first applied MAC Face and Body Studio Finish Concealer to perfect the skin, adding a light dusting of Cubic blush and Luna Cream Color Base to catch the light. Next, Kendal turned her attention to the focus of the look, the eyes. She used Industry Powerpoint to shape the eyes, then Must Have Brown on top. She blended Phone Number Eye Kohl over that, adding a light dusting of Coquette eye shadow on the brow bone. Eyelashes were curled, but Kendal skipped mascara for a very thin line of Black Creme liner over and under the eye. Lips were finished with a swipe of clear MAC Lip Conditioner.
Nails were finished with two coats of Essie’s Adorable, a pale pink. “It’s almost opaque and very feminine,” noted Ana-Maria, working with Essie at the show.
