“Rich hippies,” was how makeup artist Lisa Eldridge, working with MAC Cosmetics, coined the look backstage at Emilio Pucci. “It’s meant to look as if the girls aren’t wearing makeup, as if they’re living a luxurious lifestyle in Saint Tropez.”
Eldridge used a customized mix of MAC Cream Color Bases in Bamboo, Nude, Hush, Bronze and Pearl — according to model’s individual skin tones — to give cheeks and temples definition without appearing too over-worked.
MAC’s Dual Color Correctors — pencil concealers — in pink tones were use to brighten underneath the eyes.
Eyes were lifted using MAC’s Teddy Eye Kohl on the outer corners, and blended with MAC’s 219 brush. Luna Cream Color Base was dabbed on the inner tear ducts for a spot of light , before Power Surge Eye Kohl was rubbed along the lower lash line.
Eldrige patted MAC’s Cream Color Bases in Bamboo, Nude, Hush, Bronze and Pearl on to lips to emphasize each model’s natural tones.
The artfully disheveled hair resembled “desert goddesses,” according to hairstylist Luigi Mureno, who also named checked Brigitte Bardot as an inspiration.
He used John Frieda’s Volumizing Mousse to add body before curling hair with a one-inch tong.
