Charlotte Tilbury, working with MAC Cosmetics at Donna Karan, made eyes the focal point for beauty at the show. “It’s a blank canvas with a sci-fi, modern feel,” she said. After covering the eyelid with concealer, Tilbury used a magenta MAC lip pencil to line all around the eye, stopping about two-thirds from the edge of the eye on top and bottom. Next, Tilbury brushed MAC’s Process Magenta Chrome on lashes as mascara and bleached eyebrows. MAC’s Face and Body Foundation was used to mattify the center of the face, and MAC’s Politely Pink lipstick finished the look.
Eugene Souleiman, working with Wella at the show, created a very textured, not-too-perfect updo. “This is what modern hair should look like,” he said. “It’s organic and has attitude.” Souleiman spritzed roots with Wella’s Ocean Spritz, blasting roots with a hairdryer. Next, he took sections from each side of the hair and made them into ponytails, which he knotted together, then tucked in. Using a blowdryer, Souleiman sprayed hairspray into the flow of the air — “It’s a great way to diffuse the spray but still make it hold,” he said — and added a bit of Perfect Setting for shine. Headbands finished the look.
Nails, by Marian Neuman for MAC Cosmetics, were a mix of Quiet Time, a dark taupe, with Cream Delicate, a pale pink, layered over it. “The objective was an expensive beige,” noted Neuman.
