At Ralph Lauren, Tom Pecheux was inspired by Twiggy, Jane Birkin and Sixties London, “created in a very classic Ralph Lauren way,” he said.
Pecheux began by applying ChapStick to the lips. Next, he applied a light layer of foundation and swept a bit of bronzer on for a healthy look. Turning to the eyes, he applied black mascara with a wand on top lashes and a fan brush on lower lashes.
“The fan brush allows much more precise application on the bottom lashes because you can get right down to the root,” he said. While he was waiting for mascara to dry, he added a bit of MAC Cosmetics’ Pleasure Model blush low on the cheeks. Pecheux then applied a second layer of mascara, this time doing both upper and lower lashes with the fan brush.
“If you don’t let one coat of mascara dry before you put another one over it, you won’t get the effect you’re looking for,” he said. Pecheux then lined the inside of the eye and the inside corner of the eye in white eye pencil. Taking the eye pencil, he added an imperfect line near the top of the eye socket and blended it. A tiny bit of taupe eye shadow finished the look.
Guido Palau, working with Redken at the show, created a glam blowout. He began by adding Satinwear 02 Heat Styling lotion to root ends on damp hair. Next, he blew out hair straight with a round brush. He finished by applying Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine from the midpoint of the hair to the ends.
