A glowing face and futuristic hair complimented Thakoon’s spring collection.
Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics created a glowingly natural complexion with NARS Matte Finish Foundation and shimmering highlighting duo in Hungry Heart, for colorless contrast. Eye shadow colors were gold and muted bronze and NARS’ Matte Shadow in Barley was used for definition and contouring. “It’s softly smoky,” said Kendal, who rubbed Orgasm Illuminator onto cheekbones. “There is subtle sparkle,” said Kendal. Lips featured NARS Lips Gloss in Ophelia. “She is strong and vibrant,” said Kendal about the woman behind the makeup. “It is a bold, strong face without color.”
Styling hair was Eugene Souleiman, for Wella Professionals, who created a “hard, graphic” edge with a sumo wrestler-like updo and super long extensions.
“It’s about [the pull between] restriction and wild,” said Souleiman, who slicked hair back and wrapped a black elastic around the updo and added texture with Ocean Spritz and Wella System Professional Supermousse. “It’s really clean and has flow to it,” said Souleiman. Wella Professionals colorist Eva Scrivo led a team to customize 35 real-hair extensions with a spectrum of contrasting block highlights. “The world is in color,” said Scrivo. “It evokes and emotional experience and can tell a story.” Scrivo also used a finishing glaze to blend the light and dark colors.
