“The theme of the show is garçonne, so the look’s more about the character of a woman rather than simply a feminine boy,” said makeup artist Linda Cantello about the Giorgio Armani beauty look.
Using Giorgio Armani Beauty products, Cantello based minimal makeup on the show’s dominating colors such as black, grey, and touches of lavender and champagne. To affect a longer, softly-shadowed eye, corners were brushed with grey and taupe tones from two Eyes to kill Eyeshadow Quads Palette (number 1 and 4) and filled to the brows.
On the lip, Cantello mixed Bordeaux and lavender shades from the Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick line (launching fall 2013), and elaborated, “I wanted a punched-in stain of a colder tone that moved away from girlish pink, but wasn’t lifeless.”
Skin was laid with Maestro Foundation and nails were polished in Night Viper Nail Lacquer, a femme fatale shade that launches in fall, 2013.
Although models wore knit hats, Aldo Coppola hairstylist Roberta Bellazzi ensured faces were framed by tufts of black bangs. Hair was treated with Aldo Coppola Hair Mineral Relax and loaded with extensions, then slathered with L’Oréal Valance 3 Texturizing Mousse and braided into up-dos at the crown. Customized by face shape, extension ends were crafted into bangs that tufted from underneath the hats.
