Usually feminine and romantic, Alberta Ferretti’s models had a more modern, masculine beauty look.
“This season, Alberta’s been a bit more masculine with an underside of soft femininity, so we’ve done a strongly sculpted face with framed eyebrows,” said makeup artist Diane Kendal.
Skin was prepped with MAC Studio Moisture Cream, followed by MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation as a concealer. MAC Prep + Prime Translucent Finishing Powder was dusted along the T-zone.
MAC Eye Shadow – Shroom on the inner corners of the eyelids and Bamboo on the outer corners – was finished with Zoom Lash Black Mascara.
Brows were defined in Lingering Eye Brows pen. MAC Bone Beige went on the cheekbones and temples followed by a dusting of MAC Silver Dusk. Lips were natural in MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation and Oak Lip Pencil.
Hairstylist Guido Palau fashioned a shiny, simple low chignon.
“Lately, there seems to be an idea about toughness, strictness, shine, simplicity – and even though Ferretti’s a romantic designer, she wanted something a bit stronger than normal,” said Palau.
Hair was blow-dried straight with thickening lotion for texture and center-parted. Raked back with fingers, Redken Shine Flash 02 and Redken Fashion Works 12 were sprayed into the hair. Pulled back into a low ponytail, a small clean, knot was pinned to the nape of the neck and finished with more products to clean up flyaway hairs.
