Lips took center stage backstage at Milly Wednesday, channeling the eccentric beauty of American heiress Peggy Guggenheim, said makeup artist Romy Soleimani for MAC Cosmetics. “Lips are super bright, orange-y red,” said Soleimani, who mixed Cream Color Base in Devilish Orange with Lipmix in Gotta Go, a new shade. “It’s all about the lip.” The apples of the cheeks were given an “easy flush of color” and on eyelids she swept a touch of clear gloss and black mascara on the top lashes only.
Hairstylist Kevin Ryan at Rsession Tools kept hair simple. “It is not straight. It has a bend to it,” said Ryan, who relied on a big-barreled curling iron to get the subtle wave. “I don’t want it to be stick straight,” he said, as he combed a model’s hair through with an olive-oil treated comb from Ricky’s beauty shop to tame flyaways.
