Val Garland, for MAC, focused on the mouth for the beauty look at Monique Lhullier’s extravagant fall showing.

“We are channeling the early Nineties,” said Garland. “Think Angela Lindvall on a Belgium catwalk.” Garland perfected complexions and created a “dewy” effect with MAC Full Coverage Foundation, blended with moisturizer. Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder was used to set the foundation and cheekbones were sculpted in Copper Beach and Naturally Defined Pro Sculpting Powders, which will launch this fall-winter. A bit of highlight was added with Shell Cream Colour Base. On eyes, Garland used Accentuate Pro Sculpting Cream and Light Touch Pressed Pigments, both available this fall-winter. She used no mascara or liner, but Garland did curl lashes and groom brows. Lips were strictly defined with blue-based MAC Cherry Lip Pencil, layered with yellow-based Lady Danger Lipstick on top. Pro Devil powder blush was patted over lips for a matte finish and to keep color vibrant. “It’s a dangerous, devilish mouth and the innocence of beautiful skin,” said Garland.

Odile Gilbert for Kérastase infused hair with “Veronica Lake-like waves” and a bit of sheen at the crown. The feel was glamorous, and meant to channel Old Hollywood. To keep the top of the style shiny, Gilbert used a mix of Double Force and Double Force Controle hair sprays, leaving the texture at the bottom soft and loose.

Nails, done by Wanda Ruiz for CND received a “velvet manicure.” They were filed into a “soft, rounded square” and given a coat of Putty, then a coat of Super Matte polishes. CND’s Solar Speed Spray was used to condition cuticles.
