James Kaliardos, working with MAC Cosmetics at Nanette Lepore,described the inspiration for the look as “if Oscar Wilde had a discoparty” — with a multifaceted purple eye the look’s focus.

Kaliardosprepped the skin with MAC Matchmaster Foundation, using MAC Pro Concealand Correct to cover any imperfections. Next, he turned to the eyes,using MAC’s Bordeauxline Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Dark Current as abase, following with Nocturnelle Eye Shadow and Light Touch PressedPigment. He added Reflects Bronze glitter in the inside corner of theeye, after adding a touch of Chromagraphic Nude Pencil to give theglitter something to hold on to. “Otherwise, you have glitter all overthe face instead of where you want it,” said Kaliardos, who then addedHaute and Naughty Mascara on the lashes. Cheeks were shaded withMineralize Skinfinish in Center of the Universe, a swirled multicolorblush with a shot of gold. Kaliardos then added MAC Gloss Texture to thelips, highlighting them with more Reflects Bronze glitter.

RolandoBeauchamp, working with Bumble and bumble at the show, was aiming for adowntown tough-girl feeling for the hair. He prepped the hair withBumble and bumble Does It All Spray and Bumble’s Thickening Hair Spray.Next came a side part, with one section of hair swooping over the eyesbefore being pulled back into a ponytail. Beauchamp secured the hairinto a high ponytail, teasing the entire ponytail. Next, he flatironedthe teasing and brushed it, resulting in a mass of frizz. “I love themovement the frizz makes as the girls head down the runway,” saidBeauchamp. “It’s a nice counterpart to the clothes.”
