Inspired by Nepalese women working in their village, makeup artist Diane Kendal for MAC Cosmetics fashioned terracotta flushed skin at Prabal Gurung. “He went home and [Gurung] was really inspired by these women in the villages,” said Kendal. “They sort of had a winter burn on their cheeks.” Skin was perfected with Face and Body Foundation and Accentuate Sculpt Cream was pressed into the cheekbones. Next, Party Line Creamsheen Lipstick was pushed into the apple of the cheek. Lips were prepped with lip conditioner and topped with a little foundation.
Paul Hanlon working with Osis+ created a woman with untouched hair.
“It’s almost like a Geisha,” said Hanlon. “It’s all one length and has a virgin-like quality.” He began by applying hair extensions to the models with shorter hair to keep the look consistent. Using Iron Guard, a heat protector, Hanlon then blow-dried the model’s hair straight and applied Silk Fusion to the ends to make it shiny. Instead of brushing it out, Hanlon put his fingers through the hair to make it appear as if the girls had done it themselves.
Jin Soon Choi for Sally Hansen used Complete Salon Manicure in a nude shade called Himalaya. Then, she applied a vertical line in Rupee Red to the pointer, middle and ring finger to reference Nepalese drapes.
