PARIS — Makeup artist Pat McGrath gave the outside edges of models’ eyelids a black smudge. Their skin was left nude with a bit of powder and lips were dabbed with balm.

 

The look was “all about the black, but really inspired by Alber [Elbaz, Lanvin’s designer] saying, ‘I want the girls to look a little nasty, as if they had done the makeup themselves,’” said McGrath, who used products such as Cover Girl NatureLuxe Foundation and Mousse Mascara.

 

Hairstylist Guido Palau fashioned a low, soft braid at the back of models’ heads with shorter strands of hair falling on either side of their faces. He called the coif “very simple.”
