Four different makeup and hair looks took the runway at Oscar de la Renta.
Gucci Westman for Revlon created each look to reveal a standout element. Look One was about dark eyes in order to give off a gypsy appearance. Westman used the Midnight Express palette and mixed it with PhotoReady Primer and Shadow in Muse. Then she applied Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Shine City to give the lids a glossy effect. Completing the theme, she used Luxurious Color Eyeliner in Black Velvet and PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara.
The bright lip was the key ingredient in the second look. “We’re overdrawing the shape a little bit,” said Westman. To spotlight the lip, Westman used ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in It Girl, mixing it with Front Row. Skin was left creamy, with Baby Sticks for Lip and Cheeks in Pink Passion.
A bold lip was next in the lineup. “This look is Kate Moss,” explained Westman. “It’s all about the sexy mouth.” Depending on the model’s skin tone, one out of four shades of red was used. Nearly Naked Makeup was applied to the skin, while the eyes were kept fairly neutral with Illuminance Crème Shadow in Not Just Nudes and Grow Luscious Lash Liner in Onyx and Espresso.
The last look was all about a nude shine. “The face is really pure,” said Westman. “There’s no highlight, just a nude eyeliner on the tear line.” First, Westman applied Nearly Naked Makeup to the skin. Then she used Illuminance Crème Shadow in Not Just Nudes and Grow Luscious Lash Liner in Espresso. To finish, she completed the lips with ColorStay Lipliner in Natural.
Orlando Pita paired the four makeup looks with four hairstyles.
To complement the gypsy eyes, Pita parted the hair on the side and slicked the top of head. He tucked the hair behind the ears for a Forties vibe.
For the bright lip, Pita pulled the hair back into a low ponytail and placed it at the nape of the neck. Then, he teased out a few strands and placed those over the ears.
To coordinate with the bold lip, the hair was swept to one side and crafted into a low chignon. To hold the hair in place, a Swarovski hairpiece was pinned at the back and another was placed on the side.
The last look was a loose wave. Texture was created throughout the hair and deconstructed as if the girl had slept on it.
Inspired by the collection, the designer created a limited-edition set of shades to match. Half the girls wore Asphalt, a charcoal gray with a hint of shimmer, and the other half donned Dare, an island-inspired teal.
