Purple reigned at Jason Wu’s show Friday.
“The focus is a vibrant purple doe eye, paired with muted cheeks and lips,” said Diane Kendal, working for Lancôme at the show. Kendal started by lining eyes with Lancôme’s Le Crayon Khol in Purple Dusk, topping that with Indigo eye shadow from the upcoming Jason Wu for Lancôme cosmetics collection. Next, Kendal brushed a layer of shimmery lavender eye shadow across the top to catch the light. Kendal then curled lashes and added Hypnôse Drama Mascara in Excessive Black. On the face, Kendal used Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation as a base, then grabbed the Blush Subtil Palette, using the bronze shade to contour, the pink on the apple of the cheek and the gold on the tops of the cheekbones. Lips got a light application of clear lip balm, while nails were finished with Vernis In Love in Jolie Matins, a soft pink.
Odile Gilbert, working with Kérastase at the show, intended to create “chic elegance” with an arty chignon. She began by parting hair in the middle, then applying the brand’s Ciment Thermique, a heat-protective strengthening milk. Next, she braided a small section of hair from the back of each section and pinned it across the back of the head to form an invisible base. Next, Gilbert took the two remaining sections of hair and pulled them to the back of the head, folding them and then pinning the folds into the braid. She finished with plenty of Double Force Controle Ultime for hold and Elixir Ultime for shine.
