“The Twenties meets mermaids” was how Uzo, lead makeup artist for Nars, described the makeup look for Joy Cioci’s spring collection. The part-vintage, part-fantasy take on the Twenties mermaid was achieved within the eye makeup and the lips. To keep it modern, Uzo highlighted the skin with silver elements. Shades of ocean blue adorned the eyes and an exaggerated baby pink lip was enhanced on the cupid’s bone.
Hair, by Tommy Buckett for Marie Robinson Salon, was formed into a low bun. On the nape of the neck, finger waves were added above the bun to resemble synchronized swimmers from the Twenties. For a strong hold, Buckett used a water-based product by Garnier called Pure Clean Gel. Half of the models wore rhinestone and lace swim caps to complement the collection.
Nails, by Candice Manacchio for CND, created an elongated nail shape, with an iridescent caviar finish.
