Although D&G embraced nature for spring, hair and makeup stayed clear of the obvious clichés.
“I didn’t want hair to seem too romantic or girly. I was looking for something cool,” said hairstylist Eugene Souleiman. “It’s fresh and modern. We’re washing every girl’s hair and then tonging the ends. It’s not about tricks.”
For makeup, Pat McGrath created her version of rose-hued cheeks, flatteringly sculpted.
Emphasizing the collection’s garden inspiration, McGrath said Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce had requested no shine to the lips.
To this end, lip balm was applied to models endowed with naturally red mouths, whilst paler lips were pepped up with CoverGirl’s Simply Ageless Blush. Despite youthful glowing cheeks, skin was matte.
Faces were primed with NatureLuxe silk foundation by CoverGirl before adding lashings of face powder from Dolce & Gabbana’s makeup line in shade 50.
Black mascara from the brand’s own line was applied liberally, complemented by nude eye shadow from Dolce & Gabbana’s Smooth Eye Colour Quad.
