Both fashion and beauty at Marchesa’s fall presentation interpreted a reinvented avant-guard French circus. Faces, created by Talia Shobrook for Le Métier de Beauté, were ethereal and dynamic, with inspired antique details. “I’ve distorted the eyes a little to make them look rounder,” said Shobrook, who added allover radiance with Le Métier’s cream glaze, Magic. “I’ve added crystals in the inner corners of the eye, which is something they did in the 18th century.”

She lined eyes with a sea foam-hued liner and used black mascara to define and separate lashes. Lips were covered with a light pink lipstick to neutralize the models’ natural lip shade, and a dense Bordeaux color was stained in the center of the lip and pulled slightly out to the corners for a “doll-like effect.”

Hair, styled by Renato Campora for Fekkai, was big and textured, with a romantic, old-world vibe. Campora used Fekkai Coiff Extra Control Styling Gel on wet hair for buildable volume and plenty of Fekkai Au Naturel Clean Dry Shampoo for the unique matte finish. Front pieces were pulled back and twisted, then pinned in place, leaving volume and space in the style. A black satin bow was fastened at the base of the loose look. “It’s edgy, but quite romantic and beautiful,” said Campora, who used foil “papillotes” to create brushable curls. “Because it’s been pinned, it feels spontaneous and fresh,” said Campora. “It’s a bit undone.”
