“There are two styles of makeup: one that women can relate to and try to emulate and the other that makes people think, and dream,” said makeup artist Tom Pecheaux backstage at Marni.
An opaque, matte base provided the foundation for strong eyes and lips.
MAC Cosmetic’s white eye shadow in Tesso was applied to eyelids before a black curved line using MAC’s Carbon eye shadow was drawn above the socket using its 212 brush. “We placed the banana higher than the eye’s crease to really underline the look’s graphic effect,” said Pecheaux.
The tangy pout was achieved using MAC’s Lipmix in Orange Pro. MAC’s Matte Blush in Frankly Scarlet was pressed around the outer corners of the lips to sharpen and shade.
Hair, meanwhile, was designed to look “as if a woman has gone driving in an open-top car and her hairstyle has got caught in the wind,” said hairstylist Paul Hanlon. He used Tigi’s Bed Head Crème to prep the style, before spritzing tresses with Frederic Fekkai’s Wave Spray to create its powder texture.
Hair was encased in caps, leaving messy ends free. “We tied hair into knots before pulling free loose strands to give the style its windblown effect,” explained Hanlon.
Glossy, almost wet fringes peeked out from underneath the caps, achieved by liberally spraying strands with L’Oreal’s Elnette hairspray.
