PARIS — “They wanted the girls to look more like a sketch, more like a drawing,” said makeup artist Pat McGrath backstage before the Valentino show onThursday, referring to the Roman house’s creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli.
McGrath used gray shadow on models’ eyes, mascara on their top lashes and a bit of blush on lips. She called the look “very fresh, very natural.”
The coifs conceived by Guido Palau were in the same vein. He wove a braid on either side of models’ heads into a soft, casual bun at the nape of their necks. Flyaways were left to flutter.
“It just feels easy,” he said.
