LONDON — The starting point for Temperley London’s spring 2013 catwalk show was “Fifties couture, and Fifties starlets like Grace Kelly and Sophia Loren,” said Val Garland, the makeup artist working with L’Oreal products.
She created creamy skin, using BB Cream and added a flicked-out black eyeliner. “We made the line slightly thicker than a true Fifties eyeliner, and the flick slightly blunter, which gives a more modern feel,” Garland said.
Malcolm Edwards created the hair using L’Oreal Tecni Art products. He divided hair into two sections, with the back section swept up in a high ponytail and twisted into a bun. The front was tonged and given texture with Texture Tonic, then styled in such a way as to extend the bun in a soft form down towards the face, ending above one ear.
“Everything about this look is elongated,” Edwards explained.
