“Marni is a playful brand, so we wanted to re-create that feeling with makeup,” makeup artist Tom Pecheux said backstage at the Marni show on Wednesday.

He gave the playful look powerful undertones by creating a pronounced brow filled in with dusty pink and brown shades and a brown liner. Underneath, a banana-shaped line in taupe defined the socket, while the lid around it was shaded with browns. Lips, cheeks and skin were left bare.

Considering the quirky look, Pecheux asked: “Why does makeup have to always be about cheeks, lips or eyes, why can’t we have fun with it?”

Hairstylist Orlando Pita created a more subdued hairstyle — a roll pinned to the side of the head with a deep side part. “If I did a center part it would look Spanish,” he quipped.
