François Nars went for a strong eye at Marc Jacobs, achieving it with a deep forest green shade mixed with black — and “a lot of Vaseline, grease on the eyelids. They are very shiny,” he noted. Meanwhile, brows were bleached.
“We got inspired a little bit by Seventies glam, especially related to girls from the Seventies like Anjelica Huston, Donna Mitchell,” Nars said. “But trying to make it our own way and make it more modern. So, very transparent skin, not too much makeup — a dash of powder but glowy. We’re doing very matte, stained lips. Not superglossy like they were in the Seventies.”
The reddish lip was bold yet imperfect.
“Makeup is all about balance, the eyes, lips, skin,” Nars added. “You make it your own.” Hairstylist Guido Palau created four different looks on behalf of Redken and the show featured a lot of flowers in the hair and a lot of hats.
“There’s a Marcel wave on certain girls,” Palau said. “There’s a frizzy [style]; a wavy, tonged look, and then there’s a short, bobby look. It’s like a Seventies-Thirties kind of decadence, a loudness about the whole thing.”
He used a combination of two Redken products — Thickening Lotion and Quick Dry finishing spray — for the styles, the inspiration for which was simple: “Marc’s clothes.”
