Rutger, working with René Furterer at Reem Acra, pumped up the volume with a pompadour ponytail with a twist. He began by prepping hair with René Furterer’s Vegetal Mousse, then teased hair for volume, sweeping it back, he used Sculpting Gel to slick hair back into a ponytail in the back middle of the head. He left small sections free at the front of the head, rolling and pinning them along the sides of the head. He slicked back sides with Sculpting Gel to tame flyaways and used Styling Wax on the ponytail to keep it controlled, finishing with Vegetal Finishing Spray for shine.
Pat McGrath, working with Cover Girl at the show, used plenty of black mascara, taupe and caramel eye shadows on the eyelids and brow bone, and created an opaque cherry-red lip by mixing a red lip pencil and two lipsticks. She finished with a light application of pale pink gloss on the bow of the lip to catch runway lights.
