India in the Sixties inspired the hair and makeup at Marchesa. Talia Shobrook, working with Laura Mercier, started by creating “flawless, illuminated skin.” She applied Laura Mercier Repair Oil-Free Day Lotion SPF 15 and Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Hydrating, mixed Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme Foundation and Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 and applied the blend all over the face to create an illuminated base. Next, she concealed where necessary with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and contoured cheekbones and forehead with Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Dune Bronze. The eyes were the centerpiece, “highlighting the opulence of the collection,” Shobrook noted. She applied Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat across the lid, then contoured the crease of the eye using Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Dune Bronze. Using Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony and Laura Mercier Tightline Activator, she drew a clean, straight line across the lower lash line. Next came one coat of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara in Black to the top and bottom lashes. Shobrook finished by applying small pieces of gold leaf to the inner corner of the eye, using lip gloss to keep it in place. Subtle mocha lips “fit for a Sixties Indian goddess” completed the look, with Laura Mercier Hydratint SPF 15 in Mocha Tint.

@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
