Staying true to the brand, the beauty look at Delpozo was delicate and sophisticated.
“You can see all the textures that are in the dresses and I always want to mix the makeup to [reflect] this,” said Monica Marmo, who keyed makeup for Nars. “Some inspiration in the collection is fish scales and I wanted to translate that on the eyes.” She interpreted the inspiration into a soft look focused on making skin clean and radiant with a pop of color and texture on the eyes. She first used Nars Multiple Stick and Illuminator in shade Copacabana along the cheek bones, chin, nose and cupid’s bow to illuminate the face. On the eyes, she first applied the brand’s Dual-Intensity Blush in shade Fervor, a light and dark pink, for a warm tone. She then went over the blush with Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in shades Rigel and Antares, metallic gold and silver hues, to create a shimmery look while also adding texture. Brows were combed up while eyelashes were left untouched for a youthful look. Marmo finished the look by toning down the color of the lips using a nude lip liner.
While some models wore hoods and embellished headpieces, others sported a sleek, styled low ponytail. “It’s very clean and a little futuristic,” said Jay Braff, who led hair for Aveda. “It’s an interesting evolution and progression of what we saw last year for Delpozo. It carries a similar theme, but definitely advances it.” For the sleek style, Braff first straightened hair and gave it a deep side part. The hair was then pulled back with two small strands at the sides of the head tied into low ponytails, which were then secured together with the rest of the hair falling behind the ponytail. To make the hair look smooth, Braff used Aveda Light Elements Texturizing Creme to eliminate fly-aways and have a clean texture.
Nails also gave a nod to the evolution of the brand, marrying a clean nail with a reflective silver stripe. “It’s reflecting light, very simple and clean,” said Kim D’Amato, who led nails for Priti NYC. “It has to do with the light bouncing off the nails.”
