The key word at Tommy Hilfiger Sunday night was minimalism — for both hair and makeup.
Diane Kendal, who was working on behalf of MAC Cosmetics, said the look she did was “all about raw beauty.” Tinted moisturizer covered imperfections, lip balm was applied to the eyebrows — and the lips — and the only hint of color was a shade called Ladyblush that softly shaded cheekbones.
“The inspiration is equestrian, outdoorsy,” said Kendal. “It’s very minimal, but we’re making that our statement. It makes the girls look more powerful. She’s a very confident girl.”
Hairstylist Eugene Souleiman mentioned the equestrian vibe. He likened the low ponytails he did to “horse tails.”
“It’s really, really easy,” the ambassador for Wella Professionals said. “We’re not reinventing the wheel and we don’t want to.”
Souleiman created a center part atop the head and tucked the hair back to the nape of the neck. The hair flowed over the ears, sometimes falling into wispy flyaways.
“It’s normal-looking,” he concluded.
