“Sicilian, sartorial and sensuality” were the inspiration words tacked up backstage at Dolce & Gabbana. Add to that list a passionate Latin woman, a theme that shaped the hair and makeup.
Working with Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup products, Pat McGrath created an ultra-feminine face that combined a smoky eye with a bold lip.
McGrath described the lip color as a “rich, velvet shade” and combined three Dolce & Gabbana lipsticks – Dahlia, Ultra and Devil – to achieve it.
Using the Champagne eye shadow quad, McGrath shaded the pinky beige hues up to the eyebrow and a little underneath the eye, and completed the look with black mascara.
A beige shimmer cream was applied to the brow bones and high on the cheeks. McGrath evened out the models’ skin tone by brushing Dolce & Gabbana powder foundation.
Swept up messily with large ornate gold combs, the hairstyle suggested “something that at one point in time looked beautifully done and elegant,” noted Eugene Souleiman. He used a hot curling iron to give a kink to tendrils of hair pulled out at the back of the romantic updo.
