For spring, Proenza Schouler designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough wanted a slightly more refined version of their signature “cool girl” aesthetic. Accordingly, Proenza Schouler’s beauty look had to have that same pretty-yet-polished face. “The boys wanted her to still be sexy, but they wanted her to be mature, more of a woman, less of a school girl,” said lead hair stylist Paul Hanlon. For further details, read on!
Lead makeup artist Diane Kendal concentrated on two main features for her beauty look: eyebrows and cheekbones. To start, Kendal filled in the brows and created a “boyish” shape with MAC’s Impeccable Brow Pencil in a shade darker than the models’ natural color. Then, Kendal contoured the cheeks with a blend of MAC’s Pro Sculpting Powder in Sculpt and MAC’s Pro Powder Blush in Taupe. Finally, Kendal highlighted the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and the bow of the lips with MAC’s White Frost Pigment.
Lead hair stylist Paul Hanlon wanted to create a rough, tousled half-twist. Hanlon began by applying Frédéric Fekkai’s Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray heavily throughout the hair, which created texture and fullness. Then, using a diffuser, he finger-combed the hair until it was dry. Next, Handlon loosely gathered and tucked the top half of the hair into a French twist at the nape of the neck, leaving just a few strands flowing free. Finally, Hanlon sprayed the loose ends with Frédéric Fekkai’s Sheer Hold Hairspray to secure the look.
