PARIS — “We were inspired by Corrine Day’s photographs from the early Nineties, a young Kate Moss, super fresh girls — like the girls that go to music festivals or the beautiful French girls you see in the street wearing really stylish clothes but no makeup,” said Aaron de Mey backstage before the Chloé fall 2012 show.
The makeup artist called the look he crafted “super fresh” with an emphasis on models’ eyebrows, which were brushed up and colored in when needed. MAC Cosmetics’ Strobe Cream was applied to cheeks to illuminate faces, and a peachy color was swept on to mouths.
“It looks very like Seventies photography, or Seventies movies,” said de Mey of the lip hue. Eyes remained free of color.
Hairstylist Paul Hanlon gave models a natural coif, with loose, undulating waves.
