Faces, made by Gilbert Soliz for Sephora Pro, were “natural” and “grungy,” inspired by freedom and festivals. “This is a girl who would be at a music festival, dancing all night,” said Soliz about the energy behind the look. “It’s meant to capture a youthful spirit.” Soliz applied concealer in only areas of concern and used mostly earth tones for a “sunken in, lived in” effect.“We are using mostly browns and taupes for a sculpting effect,” said Soliz, who said he used mostly his fingers for the makeup application.Soliz used Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Make Up For Ever Sculpting Kit and Smashbox Bronze Lights Suntan Matte Bronzer to create a “dewy, warmed up complexion.” Lashes were coated in Sephora Professional Clear Natural Mascara for a feel that was “raw and essential.”Sephora Lush Flush Lip & Cheek Stain was used to finish the look.Hair, styled by lead hairstylist Jeanie Syfu for TRESemmé, complimented the Nineties-inspired look by using a combination of Surf Spray and Sea Salt Spray for “bed head texture.” Syfu framed the face with two small braids in front of a center part and infused more randomly throughout the hair. Instead of using an elastic at the braids’ ends, Syfu sealed them with a straightening iron. “She is a traveler, she’s crafty,” said Syfu, who finished off the look by drying hair with a diffuser. “There’s an ethnic, eclectic vibe.” Some of the models were given knit hats atop the tousled, bohemian style.
