James Kaliardos, working with MAC Cosmetics at Nanette Lepore, described the inspiration for the look as “if Oscar Wilde had a disco party” — with a multifaceted purple eye the look’s focus.
Kaliardos prepped the skin with MAC Matchmaster Foundation, using MAC Pro Conceal and Correct to cover any imperfections. Next, he turned to the eyes, using MAC’s Bordeauxline Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Dark Current as a base, following with Nocturnelle Eye Shadow and Light Touch Pressed Pigment. He added Reflects Bronze glitter in the inside corner of the eye, after adding a touch of Chromagraphic Nude Pencil to give the glitter something to hold on to. “Otherwise, you have glitter all over the face instead of where you want it,” said Kaliardos, who then added Haute and Naughty Mascara on the lashes. Cheeks were shaded with Mineralize Skinfinish in Center of the Universe, a swirled multicolor blush with a shot of gold. Kaliardos then added MAC Gloss Texture to the lips, highlighting them with more Reflects Bronze glitter.
Rolando Beauchamp, working with Bumble and bumble at the show, was aiming for a downtown tough-girl feeling for the hair. He prepped the hair with Bumble 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 eyes before being pulled back into a ponytail. Beauchamp secured the hair into a high ponytail, teasing the entire ponytail. Next, he flatironed the teasing and brushed it, resulting in a mass of frizz. “I love the movement the frizz makes as the girls head down the runway,” said Beauchamp. “It’s a nice counterpart to the clothes.”
