Backstage at Anna Sui’s Summer show, the look was pink and pretty and a little bit funky. “It’s a mod circus,” said lead makeup artist Pat McGrath, for Cover Girl, about the face she created. Cheeks were rosy and lashes were big, skin was clean and eyes were “softly smoky.” McGrath used Cover Girl Clean Foundation along with Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush, a fusion of creamy rosy color and Olay antiaging skin care.
“It’s all about the girls looking young and beautiful,” said McGrath. Lashes were first coated in Cover Girl’s new Lash Blast Length Mascara then layered with the brand’s original Lash Blast for a “clumpy, doll-like look,” said McGrath. Lips were nude and Smoky Shadow Blast was used on eyes for subtle smokiness.
Hairstyles, slightly different on each model, were inspired by the layers of fabric and print in the collection, said lead hairstylist Garren, for Garren New York. Garren used the line’s Designing Spray Tonic to keep strands shiny and healthy looking. Some models sported thick, blunt bangs and others a bit of a “Cher look” with some height at the crown. “It’s geometric,” he said. “It’s silky and polished.”
