MILAN — “Big, healthy hair with a bit of volume on the top, curl and wave,” hairstylist Sam McKnight said about the bouncy style at Dsquared2 that recalled Fifties Hollywood.
Pantene Pro-V Volume and Body Mousse was applied to damp hair and blow-dried with a rounded brush, then sectioned and clipped onto rollers and brushed out upon removal. The crown was segregated, backcombed, brushed back and sealed with Volume and Body Hairspray. Short hair was left extension-free. For texture, ends were brushed with Advanced Keratin Repair Split End Fuser.
“It’s all about the brow, golden skin and a strongly-colored lip — a tropical goddesses,” said makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury for MAC Cosmetics, who created a Fifties girl.
Skin was prepped with Studio Moisture Fix and tinted with a mix of Face and Body Foundation in C5 and C7. Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium Deep and Dark was brushed onto the apples of the cheeks and extended to the temples. Cheekbones were highlighted with Pearl Cream Colour Base.
Lipes were defined with What a Blast lip pencil and laid with a square lip brush in Morange lipstick. “For a perfect finish on a strongly-colored lip, always use a lip liner: It’s crucial to trace the lip and keep the color in place,” Tilbury noted.
On eyes, Coffee eye pencil was applied along the upper lash line. Sculpting Cream Copper Beech and Richly Honed were mixed and applied from the eyelid to the brow. Top lashes were curled and swathed in Haute & Naughty mascara and individual lashes were added at the ends. Brows were penciled in squared-off arches.
