Gregory Arlt, lead makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics, defined the beauty look as effortless with a pop of color at Desigual’s first runway show. “The clothes certainly make a statement, but I wanted there to be harmony between the two,” he said. Arlt left the skin fresh by using Pink Rebel Lustre Drops mixed with Face & Body Foundation. Then, Studio Care Blend Pressed Powder was buffed over the skin to make it appear polished, and Cream Colour in Hush and Pearl was tapped on the upper cheek and bridge of the nose for a subtle highlight. He also dabbed Cream Colour in Hush and Pearl kept the eyelids luminous for added dimension. To compliment the bright color palette in the clothing, Arlt used a coral called Casual Colour in Out For Fun on the lips and applied a bit of Pro Neon Orange Lipstick to make them pop. “It’s coral on acid,” he said about the bold pout.
Danilo, lead hair stylist for Pantene, began by misting the hair down with Heat Protector. To add some body, Danilo prepared the hair with BB Crème before it was styled with a T3 Iron. All of the models had their hair pulled back in a low ponytail, but instead of pulling the ponytail all the way through, it was fluidly pulled half way to create a loop. Once complete, Danilo added Keragloss Oil Mist to add shine. “This is a very realistic hairstyle to achieve,” he said. “We wanted it to be relatable.”
Two-toned nails were created by Keri Blair for MAC Cosmetics. “It’s a twist on the French manicure,” she said. First, nails were filed into an oval shaped to create a short and chic look. Then, Blair applied a white polish over all the nails. Next, a colored circle was added to the tip of each nail in Fiestaware, Steamy or Passion. “I wanted the circles to pop on the runway,” she said.
