Androgyny was the word backstage at Roberto Cavalli where the hair and makeup balanced masculine and feminine elements.
Guido Palau added several extension pieces for a long, narrow braid that fell on the models’ backs. Applying Redken’s Hot Set 22 thermal spray to wet hair, he moulded sideburns by gently pulling a little wave of hair on the sides of the face. “It gives it a greasy, tougher look,” said Palau.
Pat McGrath created an exaggerated eye with heavy black eyeliner on the lid that extended out in a tick. A taupe shadow was shaded on to the browbone and lashes were kept bare.
Covered with foundation, the lips also were kept bare and the cheeks dusted with a light pink blush.
