A beautiful “babylicious Barbie” inspired the beauty look at Blumarine backstage. It was all about a woman on holiday in California, enjoying a day in the sun, or “a young girl, fresh and sun-kissed,” said makeup artist Val Garland speaking backstage.
Attention was focused on the eye with a golden glow on the lids. A special mixture of lip gloss and a gold reflection was used on the eyelid to give a kind of lovely shine. A green pencil was smoothed on the waterline.
Eyebrows were just brushed up and filled in a little bit when necessary, so that they could look like “gorgeous and super, lovely natural eyebrows,” Garland said.
A gold flush highlighted the cheekbones. Garland used Cosmic Force blush by Mac Cosmetics, then popped the center with an apricot-like big pencil to obtain “a nicely flushed look.”
Aiming at a very fresh skin, makeup artist used Next to Nothing foundation in a natural hue, depending on the models’ skin. Nails and lips were kept natural, too.
“Gorgeousness” inspired Tina Outen for her hairstylisting at Blumarine as well. “The girls’ clothes are fabulous and exclusive, so we wanted them to be glamorous with a modern feeling today,” explained Outen, who used different L’Oréal products.
The girls’ hair loosely tumbled and bounced on the catwalk in a bouncing shiny movement. Hair extensions were applied when needed to give a consistent look to the models.
