MILAN – For fall, the Gucci girl has porcelain skin and glossy lips reminiscent of an Edwardian lady, juxtaposed with a textured ponytail straight from a Seventies dance floor.
Pat McGrath applied Max Factor’s Experience foundation to add luminosity to the skin, paired with strong lashes courtesy of Max Factor’s Volumizing mascara before working mouths into glassy claret pouts with Elixir lipgloss by Max Factor. “It’s sensual and luxurious,” said McGrath. A bright red hue was used in the center of the lips to give definition and an exaggerated quality.
Hairstylist Luigi Mureno slicked back manes into low-slung ponytails that were accessorized with feathers. “It’s masculine, but sexy,” he said.
Hair was pulled into the nape before its length was crimped, backcombed and then straightened using a flat iron to achieve volume. Many heads were topped with fedoras in bright hues.
