“Foxy ladies” was how Charlotte Tilbury, lead makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics, described Blumarine’s sassy feline faces.
Ensuring these were girls in no risk of pouncing on their prey — MAC’s appropriately named Feline black and brown kohl eye pencils were layered on the inside of the eye and lengthened with Black Track gel eyeliner. Tilbury smudged coffee colored pencil under the eyes before adding “tons of black mascara” and individual lashes for a rock ’n’ roll edge.
A new MAC bronzer, with the working title Studio Moisturizer Bronzer, was used to contour cheekbones, and it created a creamy texture along with sweeps of brightening powder. The look was finished with nude lips that were outlined with a MAC lip pencil in a soft, beige-brown shade called Oak.
“Glam meets grunge,” was how hairstylist Eugene Souleiman for Wella described complementary tousled manes. “Sexy imperfection and a little undone,” he said of the tactile look that was partially tonged and spritzed with Wella’s volume boosting Crystal Styler gel. Hair was then massaged and blown dry to mix the textures.
