Jane Birkin and Marianne Faithfull stood in as beauty muses at the DKNY show. “It’s sort of back end of the hippie culture meets rhythm and blues, with a little Carnaby Street thrown in,” said lead hairstylist Eugene Souleiman, working for Wella at the show. Souleiman blew the hair out with a round brush and Wella Perfect Setting. Next, he created a partial middle part and wound a handful of Coke-can-sized Velcro rollers around the sections of the hair. Next, he blasted the hair with a hot blow-dryer, adding Wella Ocean Spritz for additional texture and blasting quickly with the hair dryer again. “It has structure, but it’s not graphic,” he said. “There’s a little of that ‘Did she do her hair or not?’ to it. It’s very wearable.”
Charlotte Willer, working for Maybelline at the show, made a graphic eye her focal point. After prepping skin with Maybelline Fit Me foundation and powder “for a flawless look,” Willer used Maybelline Liner Express in black kohl, lining the inside of the bottom lid and extending the line past the eye, around the side of the eye and up into the eye socket above. “Donna wanted something young and simple that looked like the models could have done it themselves,” explained Willer.
Nails, by Knock Out Cosmetics, were done in Navy, a dark blue shade, and Biscuit, a cement hue.
