“My aim was to make the girls look extra luxe,” said Eugene Souleiman, working with Wella Professional at the DKNY show Sunday morning. “These are girls who take care of themselves.” He started with Wella Professional Velvet Amplifier to rehydrate the hair, then applied Perfect Setting, a blow-dry spray, and blew hair out with a round brush. Next, Souleiman flatironed the hair and did a deep side part. Pulling hair back, he fastened it at the nape of the neck with thick barrettes he’d covered with black leather. He flatironed the hair again, then used a touch of hair spray on a Kabuki makeup brush to control flyaways around the face. “There’s nothing hard about this look except the part, and nothing frou-frou at all,” he said.
Charlotte Willer, working with Maybelline at the show, created a “minimalistic, neutral” makeup look. She used Maybelline’s Dream Lumi luminzier on skin, finishing with a touch of loose powder. Next, she used Eye Studio Master Shape Brow pencil to groom the brows, adding Volum’Express One-by-One Mascara in black on the lashes. Lids got a full coating of Eye Studio Sinful Cinnamon, a shimmery beige, while lips got a coating of clear Baby Lips for a subtle finish. Essie nail color in Brooch the Subject, a cashmere beige, finished the nails.
