Fall/Winter 2012 - Backstage Beauty Coverage-Chloe Comme Parris
At Chloé Comme Parris the makeup and hair look spoke pure glamour and femininity to offset the sleek, but classy grunge look of the clothing.
Burnt Kiss with a Porcelain Sheen
Grace Lee, the head makeup artist for Maybelline at World MasterCard Fashion Week created a look for the Chloe girl. "She's like a rich girl gone grunge," says Grace
Inspired by the 20's models wore a rich dark burgundy lip painted with Maybelline's Superstay 14HR Lipstick in "Mauve-lous" that was topped with Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR in "Pomegranate Punk."
TIP: To keep the lip from bleeding and giving it a matte texture, Grace applied powder to the lips before colour was added.
On the eyes was a lighter saturation of the same colour blend, creating a plum wash along the lower lash line and lid. "Most of the models on the runways have light hair and green eyes, so the purple makes the green eye pop a lot more," says Lee. Finish the eyes with a coat of brown mascara on the lashes.
On the face to create the porcelain doll look, Lee used Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in a shade lighter than each model's actual skin tone.
Let Me See Your Halo
Paired with this roaring 20's makeup Jorge Jao, the lead hairstylist for Redken, created a romantic knotted halo. At the front, hair was parted down the middle and pulled down to form a sexy veil on the face. Instead of braiding, Jorge knotted the hair in an angelic circular shape on the crown. Once the halo shape was completed, "the knots are loosened with a tousling motion of the fingers to create more movement in the hair," says Jorge.
