Faces, made by Lisa Butler for MAC, were “wild and wooly,” with an “animal-like” feel backstage at Hervé Léger’s spring showing. “She’s not too girly, not too polite,” said Butler, who created a dewy, satin finish with a bit of base and cream blush. Brows were brushed upward with clear mascara and filled in with an eyebrow pencil in shade Costa Rica. Lips were pale pink and eyes were lined on the top and bottom for a “little more intensity.”
Bob Recine, who styled hair for Phyto, created a ”collage of texture” by infusing curls, braids and crimps in the look. “I think of a patchwork quilt,” said Recine. “It’s a look that instills confidence.” Products used included Phytolaque hair spray, Phyto Pro, for volume, and Phytopolléine elixir for a “glassy finish,” Recine said. Fingers were tended to by CND’s lead nail technician, Angi Wingle, who used neutral hue Putty for a look that channeled a mannequin’s long fingers. CND’s new Colour Effects collection, from which the shade came, will be available in October.
