Jeanie Syfu for TRESemmé was inspired by a “Thirties Shanghai calendar girl” for the simple hairstyle she created backstage at Vivienne Tam.
“We kept the hair very minimal,” said Syfu, who prepped the look with Platinum Strength Heat Spray and Thermal Creations Mousse, before blowing out hair with a flat brush and high heat. “Once we had that foundation set, we deconstructed everything just so it had a matte finish. It makes it more modern.”
As hair dried, Syfu allowed it to fall into an “imperfect part,” and then used a flat iron intermittently throughout the style to straighten any kinks. She then pinned the front section of the hair behind the ears before adding 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray, and unpinning it. Syfu also touched up the girls with Color Care Dry Shampoo to ensure texture was matte and no shine peeked through. “She was very decadent in the Thirties, very polished, and I thought about the girl today in Shanghai, she’s busy, she’s cosmopolitan,” said Syfu. “She doesn’t really wear the mandarin tight dress. I was following Vivienne’s lead and thought she has just a gorgeous blowout, it’s nothing too overstudied.”
Nails, done by Yeonjae Yuk, lead manicurist for Inocco, were left simple to offset the brightness in Tam’s collection. Yuk applied real polish nail strips in tropical orangey shade, Mango Tango, to the models, which she said took no time to dry, making them perfect for backstage. “The colors of the collection are so vivid, so we just wanted something clean and simple,” said Yuk.
Makeup, done by Maud Laceppe for MAC Cosmetics, was glossy, but also featured earthy shades. Laceppe, who corrected and blended the complexions for a perfected finish, began by moisturizing and massaging the model’s faces. Lips were conditioned and concealer was applied to faces for a “flawless” finish.
She used a taupe-hued blush in the hollows of the cheek, then blended them up for a structural effect, before adding Soft and Gentle powder onto cheeks, the center of the lip, eye lid, collar bone and breast plate for highlight. Brows were groomed and left natural, and MAC eye shadow in smoky dirt shade Groundwork was “dusted over the lid, buffed into the eye socket and swept up to the brow.” The brown powder was also pushed onto the bottom lashes and built progressively into the crease of the eye. Lashes were left without any mascara, but gloss was added to the lid and under the lashes for a gleaming effect.
“My personal philosophy to beauty is paying attention to oneself. I love to be outdoors, lots of fresh air, trying to take care of yourself as best you can. I always notice that comes through,” says Felicity Jones, the global face of @shiseido-owned @cledepeaubeauteus, which launches today.
