At the Marchesa show, the look was inspired by the outdoors.
Inspired by Indian royalty, makeup artist Gucci Westman for Revlon created a clean face with a bold floating liner on the eyelids. “I was envisioning a maharani princess. I like the eccentricity of that,” she said. To create the look, she began by prepping the skin with Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator in Peach and Bare Light, and applied foundation only where needed. On cheeks, she blended two lipsticks in berry shades for a natural flush, and on lips she used Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Fig Jam. On the eyes, she used Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner in green for models with light eyes and in blue for models with dark eyes, creating a rather thin, perfect line over the lid. She finished the effect with a bit of mascara on the lashes. Brows were groomed and filled in a touch. “It doesn’t look cosmetic. It looks natural and outdoorsy,” Westman said.
For the hair, Mark Hampton for Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe sought to create two windswept looks inspired by the Scottish Highlands. To prep the looks, he used Prep Volume Plumping Mousse. For the first style, he braided hair into cornrows to define the scalp. Braids continued down the back of the head — along with loose strands — and were gathered in a very low ponytail. For the second, Hampton created a “bad-ballerina-girl bun” by gathering hair in a high ponytail and half twisting it. It was loosely pinned to create a “young, cool” effect.
Manicurist Jin Soon Choi, using Revlon nail implements and polishes from the brand’s existing Marchesa collection, created a subtle nude nail. She applied one coat of Gray Suede on short nails to blend in with models’ skin tones. “It’s more of a complementing role [for nails],” she said.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
