“We wanted to keep hair clean and simple so it wouldn’t interfere with the clothes,” said Esther Langham, lead stylist for Moroccanoil, at Elie Tahari’s fall showcase. To achieve the lustrous style, Langham first dampened hair and dispersed a quarter-sized blend of Moroccanoil Styling Cream and treatment throughout. She then blow-dried hair and created a center part. “Next, I combed hair back to the nape of the neck and pulled it back into a tight ponytail, which we flatironed straight,” said Langham, who finished the look by wrapping a black leather cuff around the sleek ponytail and attaching a feather-bedecked hair accessory to the crown of a few of the models’ heads.
Faces, made by Kimberly Soane for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, were designed to evoke the feeling of youth. “This was about creating a wide-eyed innocent face,” said Soane, who used no eye, lip or brow liner, instead focusing on a cheery, rosy cheek and superlong lashes. To create a soft, glowing effect, Soane mixed together Bobbi Brown Shimmering shadows in Shell and Champagne Quarts shades, which she dispersed to the corners of the eyes. She then applied a small amount of foundation and face powder to “matte-ify” the complexion and created a pink “pinched” cheek with pink blush and “huge” lashes with Bobbi Brown’s new Lash Glam Extreme Lengthening Mascara (launching in March). After being concealed with foundation, lips were stained in the center with Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Slopes for a “soft Cupid’s bow” effect.
