“We definitely know she has money,” said Gucci Westman when explaining the look backstage at Oscar de la Renta. “And she’s definitely not taking the subway.”
Working with Revlon, Westman focused on crafting makeup that was simply pretty. For the face, Westman wanted it to appear luminous. To create the glowing canvas, she used Illuminace Cream Shadow in Not Just Nudes and Skinlights Face Illuminator in Nude. Mixing Powder Blush in Softspoken Pink and Matte Haute Pink she created a soft peachy flush on the cheeks.
The eyes were a mix of both violet and pale pink, which was placed close to the lashes and under the lid. “It has a bit of a Fifties feel,” said Westman. Finishing with a glossy lip, she mixed Super Lustrous Matte in Smoked Peach with Lip Butter in Pink Lemonade and Juicy Papaya. To top it off, she coated the lips with Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Snow Pink. “She’s elegant and polished,” said Westman. “A little Victorian.”
Creating a French braid with a middle part, Orlando Pita created what he called “a giant cornrow.“ Using hair spray before and after, Pita French braided the hair from the top and the swooped it under and pinned it. Topping off the look was an array of brooches that were created specifically for the collection.
