NARS’ James Kaliardos went for a cool, androgynous look, priming models’ skin with Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, and finishing with Optimal Brightening Concentrate for an iridescent sheen. His inspiration for the eyes was Faye Dunaway in “Network”: He accentuated eyes with liner on both upper and lower waterlines, and a gray matte shadow in the inner contours.
Anthony Turner played further on the boy/girl theme of the collection with models’ hair. “Erdem loved the idea of public school girls dressed like boys sitting and plotting at the back of the classroom,” he said. Working with L’Oreal products, he made an abnormally low side parting secured with a bobby pin and twisted it at the back, fluffing it up with Fresh Dust dry shampoo so that it resembled cotton candy. He sprayed it into place, but pulled out random pieces allowing them to float down the catwalk with the feathered looks in the collection.
Nail artist Anatole Rainey created an ombré effect on fingers and toes, with clear gloss that segued into white towards the tips in what he referred to as “a twisted French manicure.”
