At Marchesa, hair and makeup were intentionally pretty with an edge.

“It’s Gothic romance,” said Gucci Westman, Revlon’s global artisticdirector. “It’s dressed up, but it’s not the perfect red-carpet look. Ithas edge.”

Westman started by prepping the face with RevlonPhotoReady BB Cream Skin Perfector, followed by PhotoReady SkinlightsFace Illuminator in Bare Light. Next, she created what she called “agreasy gray eye” with ColorStay Shadowlinks in Charcoal, adding LashPotion Mascara in Blackest Black to top lashes only and rimming the eyeswith ColorStay Eyeliner in Brown and Black.

Turning to thelips, Westman applied ColorStay Lip Liner in Plum, followed by a mixtureof Chocoliscious, Black Cherry and Certainly Red lipsticks with JustBitten Kissable Balm Stain in Adore. She topped the mixture with anapplication of powder to create a purple matte lip.

OdileGilbert, working with Kérastase at the show, kept things relativelysimple, but with a slight twist. After creating a straight part, sheused Kérastase Mousse Bouffante at the roots of the hair and topped itwith Ciment Thermique, drying hair straight. Next, Gilbert took a smallfront section of the hair and swept it across the top of the forehead,fastening with a small elastic. Next, she glued black feathers from thatsection of hair down in a straight line to the hair’s end, finishingwith Lacque Dentelle flexible-hold hair spray.

Jin Soon Choi, working with Revlon at the show, painted fingers and toes with Darling, a pale lavender.
