Backstage at the Proenza Schouler show Wednesday night, the beauty nodded toward the beauty look of Native American Indians.
Makeup artist Diane Kendal, working for MAC Cosmetics, focused on seamlessly blending a cream base into the skin. Then, she blended three colors on cheeks, up to temples to create a slightly contoured look. She lightly patted lips with foundation as well. On eyes, she used a lip pencil in a stone color to line them, and the eye crease. She then blended the color up into the eye socket. Hairstylist Paul Hanlon, for Frédéric Fekkai, continued the inspiration with a undone plait.
Referring to the designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, Hanlon said, “The boys liked the idea of girls having long hair.” So he began by applying hair extensions, which brushed the waist, and razored off the ends to create rough edges. He then created a middle part and gathered hair into a low ponytail, creating a center braid (folding strands just once). He then pulled much of the braid apart. He used mousse to smooth out the top of the hair and applied Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray to the long strands for texture. He finished the look with hair spray and pressed a hair net against the top of the head to smooth hair.
