MAKEUP: Nadine Luke for MAC
SNAPSHOT: Deconstructed Beauty
THE SCOOP: For her Spring 2010 collection, designer Norma Kamali brought her technology influenced designs to the New York City streets. But the hair and makeup added a human-like appeal.
Stylist Peter Gray molded hair into braided hats to work as an accessory to the clothing. "It's like little hats off to the side...slightly asymmetrical," he said. "I wanted a style that was frizzy but pretty."
And since Kamali's presentation took place outdoors amongst the elements, lead makeup artist Nadine Luke's application was very technical to ensure it was translatable to the naked eye.
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: All products by Redken. Apply Fabricate 03 Heat Heat-Active Texturizer (for thick hair) or Thickening Lotion 06 Body Buider (for fine hair), starting from the bottom and working towards the top. Spritz with water to form really "gutsy roots" and blow-dry. Part into sections and backcomb to add lots of volume. Gather hair into a side ponytail bun. Attach braided extension and wind into a loop. To finish, brush and comb strands in the opposite direction to loosen.
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All makeup by MAC. Line eyes with Pearlglide Eye Liner in Molasses and Eye Kohl in Teddy. Layer on top Mineralize Eye Shadow in Guilt by Associtation (Limited Edition). Generously coat lashes with mascara and groom brows. Contour cheeks with Powder Blush in Peaches and highlight the high plains with Iridescent Powder/Loose in Silver Dust. Complete the look by staining the inner lips with Lip Pencil in Burgundy.
