MILAN — “An outdoorsy Germanic feeling,” said hairstylist Luigi Murenu, describing the look at Emilio Pucci. Hair was blow-dried with John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse, then given a gentle, middle part that stopped halfway up the crown.
Two, thickly-braided bands of extensions matching the models’ natural hair color were wrapped behind the ears, looped over the head parallel to the hairline, and distressed for wispiness. Loose and long over the shoulders, hair was tousled with a curling iron and finished with L’Oréal Elnett hairspray.
Using MAC Cosmetics, makeup artist Lisa Butler created a strong brow, customized to models’ hair color. Eyes were done in beige shadows such as Omega, Coquette and Concrete. Foundation-free and brushed only with concealer, the face was contoured with Strobe Cream.
“We wanted to make the girls very sweet but with an edge of danger,” she said. “For years we’ve been seeing a smoky eye and a beige lip. In our own way, we’re doing the opposite — a smoky mouth and a beige eye.”
