Second time’s a charm.
“Narciso said, ‘I really loved what we did last season, can we do that again?’ And I said sure,” explained Dick Page, artistic director for Shiseido, when describing the look for Narciso Rodriguez’s show. Page wanted to keep the makeup as pure as possible. He noted that his assistants prepped the skin, Dick applied his own blend of blush on every model. Crafting a soft, rosy color, he used multiple shades of Luminizing Satin Face Color to illuminate the cheekbones. Keeping it natural, Page created depth on the eye by lightly brushing brown shadow along the upper and lower lash lines. Then, brown mascara was lightly applied to the lashes. Using the Eyebrow Compact, Page created definition and emphasized each model’s natural brow shape. To finish, muted lips were formed with a neutral tone and smudged for a diffused finish. “It’s more about what’s right,” said Page, “rather than what’s new.”
Following suit, Paul Hanlon looked to last season’s hair and created a more deconstructed version. “Last season was so successful for [Rodriguez],” said Hanlon, “and he got really good feedback from it.” Hanlon cited a woman who had just walked down the street as a reference for the look. After blow-drying the hair, he used Frédéric Fekkai Full Volume Mousse and ran his hands through the front to create veils that lightly fell in front of the model’s face.
To complement the collection, Deborah Lippmann created a modern, nude matte nail. Short rounded nails were painted with Naked and layered with Flat Top Matte-Maker Top Coat.
