PARIS — Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury said she took a cue from a modern Tippi Hedren for the beauty look at Thierry Mugler.

“So there was a nod to the late Fifties, early Sixties,” she explained.

Tilbury crafted a thick, “handsome” brow on models, and gave them a contour under cheekbones, “keeping skin very glowy and fresh.” On lids, she applied a beige-gray cream powder followed by a lip gloss.

“It’s to make it look very wet, painted and shiny,” said Tilbury, adding that individual false lashes were applied to the top lids. For lipstick, she mixed a coral and a beige tone that was then matted down with powder.

Catherine Deneuve helped inspire hairstylist Sam McKnight for the coifs, which he described as “kind of aerodynamic.” For those models not wearing caps or hoods, he back-combed hair in a Sixties fashion and clasped it into a low ponytail.

“It’s an aerodynamic, round shape following the actual shape of the skull,” said McKnight. To get a “modern, dry texture,” he spritzed Frédéric Fekkai Marine Summer Hair Beach Waves spray and a Pantene Pro-V spray as a finish.
