Luciana Pieroni, creative director for Clé de Peau Beauté, was inspired by stone angels, the inside ceiling of churches and medieval architecture for the “beautiful gargoyles” she created at Vera Wang’s fall show. “The brows are strong and long,” said Pieroni. “The skin is luminescent, almost like porcelain.” Pieroni used Clé de Peau’s Eyebrow Pencil and Eye Liner Pencil to fill in and elongate eyebrows. On eyelids, the lead makeup artist used limited edition shades 116, 117 and 118 of Satin Eye Color and no mascara was used. Lips were given a dab of Extra Rich Lipstick in pink-nude shades, R10 and R12.
Hair, done by Paul Hanlon for Frédéric Fekkai, was based off a feeling of “savage beauty.”
“It’s an elegant updo, but it is modern,” said Hanlon, who called the “Nefertiti-shaped” style “wind-blown and aerodynamic” with an allusion to the outdoors. “It’s fresh and nymphlike.”
Hanlon used Fekkai Full Blown Volume Mousse on wet hair, and then power dried and brushed it out. Afterward, Hanlon back combed hair into sections at the crown and combed through lightly so the top would appear smoothed over. He then took a large piece of hair from the middle and tied a knot, which he continued to tie in knots until he reached the end, which was rolled and secured to the base of the head. Hanlon used Piecing and Forming Wax for “wet texture” at the top of the head and Sheer Hold Hairspray throughout to secure flyways and ensure hold. “It’s really a classic technique,” said Hanlon, who made the top of the style piece-y with a men’s wide comb. “[It’s] very Geishalike and a little erratic.”
