Argentine gauchos crossed with all-American Ralph Lauren girls inspired the makeup at the designer’s show Thursday morning. “She’s glowy and sophisticated,” he said. After prepping skin with Estée Lauder’s Idealist and Daywear skin care products, Tom Pecheux — who is creative makeup director for the Estée Lauder brand — applied Lauder’s DoubleWear foundation. Next, he turned to the eyes: skipping mascara, he grabbed a black Lauder eyeliner and lined eyes from the middle of the eye to the edge, making the line thicker as he moved along, but without a wing. Estée Lauder’s Flower Power blush was applied to the cheeks “to satin the face,” and then Pecheux mixed the blush with lip balm and dabbed it on the mouth with his finger.
Guido Palau, working with Redken at the show, created a classic chignon. “About 90 percent of the girls are wearing hats, so the hair is sort of second-fiddle to that,” said Palau. He started with a center part, then blew hair dry with Redken’s Satinwear 02 blowdry spray. Next, he applied Redken’s Fashion Works 12, a working spray, in the hair and pinned hair at the nape of the neck. He finished with an application of Redken’s Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist for shine.
