A fleet-footed Dick Page finalized the makeup look at Marc By Marc Jacobs 90 minutes before showtime.

Working on behalf of Shiseido, he went with an orange lip; rosy, luminescent cheeks, and a wash of lip gloss on the eyes, a final look whose inspiration was “based on the clothes.”

Page first applied an orange lipstick called Day Lily, dusting atop that with a fluffy brush an orange pigment powder to create a deeper orange shade.

A wash of Luminizing Satin Face Color powder went on the cheeks. All told, there were six shades of the powder used, collectively resulting in the rosy finish. Foundation was applied as needed. Page sketched a black eyeliner on the upper and lower lash lines, adding on top of that more lip gloss for a wetter look.

On the hair side — in contrast to the night before at Marc Jacobs, where there were four hairstyles — Guido Palau did only one hair look on behalf of Redken at Marc By Marc Jacobs Tuesday afternoon. “One look, thank God, even though we’ve got 100 girls and boys,” he exclaimed.

The Marc By Marc Jacobs ’dos, however, did borrow from one of the Marc Jacobs looks: the frizzed-out one. Palau took a section from ear to ear, “dragging” it over to a side ponytail. The result was hair set flat to the crown and that blended into a puff, a voluminous, frizzy mass all around the head.

Palau first set the hair by pinning it tightly to the head. After letting it down, he blew it out, applying Redken Thickening Lotion in the process to create texture.

“It’s something [Marc] wanted for both his shows,” Palau said of the frizz. “[But] it’s a little bit younger than last night. This is about the Seventies Chelsea girl. Still glamorous, still fun and young.

“This is a very wearable look, if you can be bothered to pin set your hair,” he remarked. Palau used Quick Dry finishing spray to finalize the look. “Once you’ve brushed it out, you don’t want to put any more product in because you want it to be floaty and like a cloud.”

On the guys, he blended the Thickening Lotion into the hair after giving subtle trims.
