Thakoon’s garden-inspired collection featured hair and faces thatfelt equally whimsical, but unequivocally modern.

“The word is fantasy,” said makeup artist Diane Kendal, whoselook also nodded to Mia Farrow in The Great Gatsby, and focused on browsand cheeks. “[The collection is] influenced by birds, butterflies andhas a lot of prints.” To begin, Kendal applied Nars Luminous MoistureCream and Optimal Brightening Concentrate to models to impart a“reflective” quality. To perfect complexions, Kendal used all newproducts for spring, Radiant Creamy Concealer, Light Reflecting SettingPowder and Seduction Blush — which was used lower on the face ratherthan the cheekbone, “like a painting.” Brows, one of the focal points ofthe look, “alluded to the fantasy” and were darkened with Mambo andJodhpur Eyeliner pencils. Lashes were curled and left mascara-free andboth Bali and Blondie Single Eyeshadows were used in the crease of theeye. Santa Monica Blvd Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner was also usedon eyes.
