SHOW: Richie Rich
MAKEUP: Kabuki for M.A.C
HAIR: Jeanie Syfu for TRESemme
The season marked the return of a Richie Rich designed collection to NY Fashion Week, but the fashion darling was not back as one half of Heatherette. He was instead presenting a solo collection. While the clothes were noticeably more wearable than his Heatherette fantasy pieces, the hair and makeup stayed true to his previous label's sense of fun. As hairstylist Jeanie Sayfu explained "the inspiration was about Marylin Monroe and Marie Antoinette and how they became more refined as they got older. The show is going to be telling the story of a cool punk rock chick growing up and become a polished woman." For the punk side Sayfu created a cornrow-sided faux mohawk and for the refined women a full-bodied curl set. To recreate the curled look on your own Sayfu says "Teasing is a really cool technique to add volume to any curl set. For a less dramatic result, don't tease it all the way to the end, but tease it at the root before you set the curl. The heat actually activates the tease so you get this really pretty full set of curls as you brush it out."
The makeup team took their inspiration from the imagined meeting of two beauty icons, Marylin Monroe and Edie Sedgwick. The result is a look that's big and bold but also playful "almost like the two of them did each other's makeup" explained the M.A.C lead artist. To take the look off the runway the M.A.C team suggests you "only line the bottom of the eye and then do a strong brow. Anyone with that hard pulled down smoky eye automatically has a bit of attitude in their look. To get a smoky bottom eye use a soft eyeliner and then a fine brush to smudge it and smoke it out."
