“She’s kind of cool and there is a bit of sexiness to her,” said makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo, working with Nars, of the muse J.W. Anderson conjured for the show. “It was honestly chill, so we didn’t do a lot of makeup. I wanted it to be pretty, but a bit like she didn’t care that much.”
It was all about clean, beautiful skin. Carrasquillo skipped contouring and powder altogether and wanted “skin to look like skin.” He prepped models’ faces with Complete Concealer and applied All Day Luminous Pressed Powder Foundation.
For lips, he patted Kiss Me Stupid Lipstick gently with his fingers for a natural effect. Eyebrows were darkened slightly with Audacious Mascara.
For hair, the character was a “little rich girl who owns a skateboard,” said stylist Anthony Turner, working with L’Oréal Professionnel. “She is a kind of a little bit prim, and very well maintained but she wants to be cool.”
Turner used TecniART Thermo Spray, Wildstylers Beachwaves and Mythic Oil, as hair was swept into a side part. While curly tresses were left as is, straight hair was given a bit of a curl, for softness and movement.
“The quality of the hair is very important, even though she is a cool young girl. She is not grungy, she is expensive. So there is a definite quality to the hair. It is the type of hair that is very aspirational. It is the hair that most girls want in a way. It’s still very cool and it is not bourgeois in a sense.”
