Artists: James Kaliardos for M.A.C Cosmetics;
Luke Hersheson for Redken.
Inspiration: Posh school girl.
"It's a '90's look inspired by Catherine Deneuve in her 1964 french
film, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg," said Kaliardos.
M.A.C Prep and Prime Finishing Powder was first applied to the face, followed by a sweep of Give Me Sun bronzer on the cheeks for a sun-kissed look. Pearl Cream Color Base was used to highlight the cheekbones. On the eyes, Lite Brite, a bale blue shimmer, was applied to the
inner corners of the eye, followed by Swell
Baby, in the crease. Lashes were curled but left bare. Lips were painted with Super Kissable Lip Color in Nude.
To compliment, hair was equally
playful with an emphasis on natural-looking sheen. Models wore clip-on bangs that tapered in the front. The rest of the head was lightly curled and brushed-out, then finished with Redken Full Force Hair Spray and Body Full Amplifier.
Artists: Neil Moodie for Bumble & bumble; Dick Page for Shiseido.
Inspiration: Country innocence vs. urban androgyny.
The Look: Page veto'd liquid makeup and powder for both Boy. and Girl., using corrector only to conceal spots. Brows were also groomed as needed.
For Boy., a striking "transfer eye" was created by smudging black pencil at the lash line and in the socket, followed by a coat of Shiseido Full Correction Lip Treatment (a clear balm) on the entire lid, and black liquid liner (applied with a brush) at the outer corners for added intensity. The desired finish revealed itself after a few minutes, as the balm began to blur the dark lines. The eyes were then completed using black mascara. Lips and cheeks were left bare.
The focus shifted away from the eyes for Girl., with a flushed cheek and lip taking center stage. Page used a damp sponge to apply Shiseido Shimmering Rouge in RD601 (new for spring) at the temples, across the apples of the cheeks (towards the eyes), along the bridge of the nose and on the lips.
Backstage Buzz: Models & co. were in high spirits, with hair and makeup taking little time and friends allowed backstage to socialize. Choi also told us that she'll be behind-the-scenes at tonight's Saks 5th Avenue fête, prepping the tips of A-list attendees.
Botox may be approved for everything from wrinkles to excessive sweating, but many of its common uses are actually off-label. So much so that the FDA just fined the filler's parent company, Allergan, for "seeding the market" with the notion that Botox is safe for migraines, muscle spasticity and overactive bladders— all claims that have yet to be cleared.
Moral of the story? One doctor's recommendation may bear another doctor's warning, so do your due diligence to enjoy these sorts of medical treatments to their full (FDA-approved) extent.
