Winter and summer joined forces for Thakoon’s winter collection.
In order to translate the opposition, lead makeup artist Diane Kendal used Nars Cosmetics to create a glittering, deep blue smoky eye. “We’ve done really deep winter blue for the eyes,” said Kendal, “and the glitter reflects the summer.” Kendal began by creating a square shape and layering the eyes with Solomon Islands Eye Paint, Ubangi Eye Paint and loose glitter to craft a juxtaposition of winter and summer. Eyebrows were filled and brushed up, while skin was concealed with Radiant Cream Compact Foundation and a hint of Blush in Sex Appeal was applied at the apple of the cheek. Leaving them natural, the lips were topped off with lip balm.
Using Kérastase products, Odile Gilbert kept it graphic and conceptual for Thakoon’s Sunday show. “When they (models) get out of a show, they twist everything together,” said Gilbert, “which is like a modern chignon.” Gilbert used Ciment Thermique to pull the hair back into a ponytail and sprayed it with Double Force Hair Spray to create a messy chignon. But that wasn’t all that was involved in this hairstyle. Gilbert fashioned bangs of various lengths on half of the forehead.
To finish the look, Kim D’Amato for Priti NYC used one coat of Bristol Fairy to make it look as if the nail were wet.
