A neon red-orange in Peter Som’s collection inspired the Pop Art makeup look backstage. Yadim, for Maybelline, kept the skin dewy and fresh and focused on the eyes with a punchy swipe of color. “The bright color is something I had floating around in my kit and it’s just this really intense acid orange,” said Yadim. “We’re just swiping it on — one brushstroke.” He amped up the color for runway, but said the look can be achieved at home with bright lipstick set with powder for a “simple, sporty look with a little bit of a twist.”

Eugene Souleiman, Wella Professionals’ global creative director, opted for an equestrian vibe with the hair, sweeping locks back into braids and slicking the sides and top with three egg-sized dollops of mousse. “When the girls come out they look very handsome, but when you see them in profile they look very elegant and regal,” said Souleiman. “When you see them from behind, there’s another detail.”

To complement the colors in the collection, Madeline Poole, for Christian Louboutin Beauté, selected a khaki green shade called Alta Perla for the nails. “There’s a lot of bright red and navy in the collection, so out of all the color options, this is the one that looked best with everything,” said Poole. “A nude is difficult because it doesn’t look good on every skin tone, so having a neutral that looks good on everyone is the only way of doing it.”
