The beauty look accompanying Narciso Rodriguez’s fall collection was all about the details.
“Seeing the beautiful clothes and the beautiful tailoring and fabrics and prints, we wanted to put little points of light on the face to really enhance the girls so they looked as beautiful as they could,” said Dick Page, lead makeup artist and artistic director for Shiseido. Page applied either green or pink eye shadow in the corner of the eye and lower lash line and used “soft rose brown” Lacquer Rouge shade Viola to create a rosy pout. Faces were perfected and given a matte finish with a new product launching in August, Sheer & Perfect Compact Foundation.
Hair, styled by Paul Hanlon for CHI, was “refined” and had a slight reference to both “Seventies Halston” and the Nineties.
“It’s very considered hair,” said Hanlon, who used products like CHI 44 Iron Guard and Silk Infusion for heat protection. “It’s a little bit architectural, very minimal.” Hanlon gave the girls a center part and used a straightening iron for the look, which was tucked behind the ear and featured a bit of a flip at the end.
“[It’s like] when the girls had those long bobs and the ends, just kind of.…I wouldn’t say flipped out, but had a little kink to it,” said Hanlon. “It was quite sheer and…it was that time when women did their hair so it’s more blow-dried and all about beautiful, shiny, quality hair.”
To accompany the hair and makeup, Deborah Lippmann created a shiny, peach-colored nail with her shade, PYT.
“[Rodriguez] wanted them to be finished,” said Lippmann of the nail look. “The idea was that it would be a little flush, but fresh.”
