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.
A new Joan Rivers coffee table book, titled “Joan Rivers Confidential,” gives readers never-before-seen photos and letters of the late comedian throughout her life. “Because of her drive to always be fresh, she kept records of every appearance, every performance, all the jokes that were used on TV, all the clothes that were worn,” said Rivers’ daughter Melissa. Here, Rivers poses at the “Tonight Show” in Tracy Mills in 1985. Read more about the book and see more photos at WWD.com. #wwdeye
After a career at New York hot spots like Narcissa, Dovetail and Nix, @chefjfraser has expanded to the West Village with The Loyal, a modernized take on an American brasserie. “And as I’ve gone through my career I’ve felt some departure from that kind of simple, straightforward [cooking]. This is meant to take on the idea of ‘what if the American brasserie was invented today?’” #wwdeye (📷: @chinseephoto)
