Marc By Marc Jacobs
Redken creative consultant Guido Palau was on hand at Marc By Marc Jacobs, ready to create a utilitarian design that actually drew on his work from the early 90s. First, he applied Redken Satinwear to damp hair and then blow-dried the locks. Then, Palau pulled the hair back and secured into a ponytail, before flipping the locks towards the front of the head and securing the hair with a clip around 2″ above the elastic. Next, he twisted the ponytail back down towards the nape of the neck and secured it with a second clip around 2″ below the elastic. Finally, he applied Redken Forceful 23 to secure the style, before pulling out a few loose strands. To achieve a shiny finish, he added a large amount of Shine Enrich.
NARS Cosmetics makeup artist James Kaliardos was inspired by two paintings—”Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh and “The Scream” by Edvard Munch—when creating the beauty look for Rodarte’s show. To start, Kaliardos used a NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil to line the upper and lower eye lids. Then, he layered on NARS Eyeshadow in Night Flight and Tropic. On the cheeks, he applied a light layer of NARS Blush in Penny Lane. To the lips, he patted on layers of NARS Eyeshadow in Pearl Beach and NARS Blush in Penny Lane, giving the lips a dreamy aesthetic. To finish, he applied a light layer of lipgloss.
