MILAN — “Aquatic goddesses — innocent but not naive,” hairstylist Guido Palau said about the hairstyle that complimented the fluid dresses in Alberta Ferretti’s spring 2013 collection.
To achieve a wet, sea-tangled look, Palau, using Redken products, applied Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam into water-dampened hair. Clips were slipped into the crown to maximize the wind-swept volumes and to keep hair off the face. Naturally-dried hair was slicked with Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist to hold the glossy, wet shine.
Makeup artist Diane Kendal, using MAC Cosmetics, started with a Prep + Prime Skin Smoother. Grease eye shadow was blended towards the brow in soft, smoky strokes. A yellowy-golden trail was dusted across the lids and shimmered underneath the eyes with Pigment in Golden Lemon. Brows were lightly accented with brown powder to continue the diaphanous, wet look.
On nails, Keri Blair, senior artist with the MAC Pro Team North America, created a custom-made lacquer. The color, painted onto roundly-filed nails, was a mixture of Pigment in Pink Opal and clear nail polish to evoke an “iridescent, mother of pearl wash, like a sequin or a mermaid tail.”
