Backstage at Emilio Pucci Fall 2015

MILAN — Taking cues from the runway soundtrack — a bit of Elvis, The Doors and Jimmy Page — hairstylist Eugene Souleiman characterized the Emilio Pucci girl as “a very cool rockstar’s girlfriend.”

Hair had a clean texture and a sharp center part. Ends were sprayed with Dry Me Dry Shampoo from a forthcoming Wella Professionals Ei Mi styling range launching in North America in 2016. “It’s the only dry shampoo I’ve used in the hair that doesn’t feel like it’s leaving a lot of residue,” he said. A hairspray blast held down front lengths.

Working with MAC Cosmetics, makeup artist Lisa Butler applied Mineralize Skinfinish Natural and Studio Face and Body Foundation. “It’s minimal, very sheer and glowing — thin, like a liquid,” she said of the light foundation.

Eyes were framed with Penny Arcade from the Trend Forecast Fall 2015 Eye Palette, applied over the eyelid, washed out to the crease, run into the socket and traced into inner corners. On uncurled lash ends, Extended Play Lash mascara was run horizontally “in a zig-zag motion to make lashes pointier and less fluffy,” Butler noted.

Feathery brows were brushed up with a clear gel. A bright lip inspired by Seventies star Sylvia Kristel in “Emmanuelle” was created with two shades – On Hold and Lady Danger from the Lip Palette 6 Editorial Reds – and fingered onto lips, followed by gloss.
