MILAN — “Melancholy and masculine with a very weathered, deconstructed texture,” said hairstylist Paul Hanlon about the tactile hairstyle at Marni.
After slathering hair with TGI Catwalk Curlesque Strong Mousse, he finger-parted it into a very low, back part. Hair was matted onto the face around the forehead and behind the ears. A mesh tissue was pushed into the back of head, secured with a hair net and blasted with a blow drier. “The femininity’s been stripped away. It’s very bare, like fractured tree roots and vines of the wilderness,” Hanlon commented.
Makeup artist Tom Pecheux referenced French photographer Sarah Moon’s glazed, hyper-realistic prints as inspiration behind his “blurry, soft-focus face,” which was counterbalanced with the “dramatic, austere, sharply constructed” feel of the collection.
Dominated by a strong, matte pout, Pecheux, using MAC Cosmetics, stained lips with Crimson Lipmix and Hang-up Cremesheen Lipstick. To blur the lip line, a Q-tip dipped in Basic Red Pigment powder was run along the mouth for an effect “like the lips are fading into the skin,” Pecheux said.
Mascara-free eyes were glossed with a mix of Midtone Nude and Orange Lipmix and dusted with Taupe blush. Eyebrows went untouched. Before hitting the runway, clear EyeGlass was applied to the eye. Matte, contour-free skin was prepped with Studio Sculpt Foundation.
