“The Monique Lhuillier woman is always the same woman,” said Val Garland working with MAC Cosmetics. “She’s chic and she’s red-carpet ready.” The collection consisted of a lot of hot orange and fuchsias, so Garland decided to create a bright red lip amongst the two dominant shades. The skin was meant to appear flawless with a satin finish by using Mineralized Foundation. Then, a cream-colored pencil was applied to the corner of the eyes and the brows were brushed up with Clear Brow Set. The lips were finished with Huggable Lip Color in Cherry Glaze and Basic Red Pigment was applied to the center.
“The inspiration is always the clothes, the geometry of the clothes and the freshness of the clothes,” said Bob Recine working with Moroccanoil and talking about the hair look. “That’s why I wanted to have something that looked wet, so it has that fresh and clean feeling.” To achieve the slicked back, stick straight do, Recine began by spraying Luminous Hairspray Medium throughout and then used a flat iron over each section. Then, he combed the hair forward toward the face and applied Volumizing Mousse from root to midlength in small one-inch sections to keep the hair saturated. Next, Recine took Styling Gel and combed everything back down and into place to make the hair appear wet. Adding contrast, Recine kept the rest of hair dry and brushed it straight. To finish, Luminous Hairspray Strong was sprayed to hold the hair in place and give it some shine.

“I’m Russian and I love to use all these little tricks that I got from my grandma or my mom. We didn’t have a lot of money for creams or anything like that so we would use a garden as a beauty treatment regime. We’d put cucumber in the fridge and do a cucumber mask,” says model @irinashayk on one of her beauty hacks. WWD asked celebs what their go-to self-care rituals are.
