PARIS — Makeup artist Tom Pecheux called the look for Elie Saab’s show “50 shades of gray.”
“All over the eyelid, and especially under the eyes, it’s all a degradé of gray,” he explained.
Working with MAC Cosmetics, Pecheux applied to models’ faces foundation, concealer and a touch of contour. A black liner was applied to the inside of their peepers and black mascara to top and bottom lashes.
Hairstylist Eugene Souleiman said the models were meant to look rich, but not vulgar.
Using “tons of hairspray” Souleiman crafted a slicked-back style crowned with a gold-colored, metallic headband that disappeared into strips of hair drawn back from each side of models’ heads.
