Little girls playing dress-up in Mom’s closet provided the inspiration for the hair and makeup at Oscar de la Renta’s Tuesday evening show.
“She loves ribbons, headbands and volume,” said Pita, who created Sixties-style bouffants. Pita backcombed the hair — “most of it is full of product from other shows today, so I really don’t need to add anything,” he said — to create lots of volume, and then pinned hair under at chin length to make it look short. Next, he added a jeweled accessory to each girl’s hair — some got jewel-encrusted headbands, others ribbons with brooches pinned to them — at the crown of the head.
Gucci Westman, working with Revlon at the show, focused on the eyes — choosing to do “dolly-like” emphasized lashes. “I wanted the makeup to be beautiful but whimsical,” she said. After adding multiple coats of Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara in black to top and bottom lashes, she used Revlon ColorStay Eyeliners in black and brown to subtly emphasize the eye, with a bit of Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner in Black. Revlon ColorStay 16h Eyeshadow Quad shades in Attitude, Addictive and Decadent were blended together for a taupe-brown lid. Westman used a bit of foundation where necessary to even out skin tone, adding a subtle flush to the skin with Revlon PhotoReady Bronzer in Bronzed and Chic and PhotoReady Cream Blush in Pinched and Flushed. Westman finished by mixing Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Creme Brûlé, Sugar Frosting and Creamsicle for a soft, baby-pink lip.
