MAKEUP: Stephane Marais for MAC Cosmetics
SNAPSHOT: Farm Girl in the Big City
THE SCOOP: Sophie Theallet is known for her boho-chic frocks filled with extraordinary detail and an underlying couture quality. So for the French designer's Fall 2010 collection, the beauty team created a free-spirited look to accentuate the pieces.
Antoinette Beenders took the farm girl and glammed her up with a voluminous ponytail that cascaded along the shoulder. "We're creating texture with the Volumizing Tonic and spraying it in there to rough it up," said Beenders. "We want it to look like she could have done it herself but a bit dressed."
Stephane Marais played up the innocence of each model by lining their eyes with a liquid gold shade and skipping the mascara for a wide-eye appeal. Flushed cheeks and stained lips takes the girl from the farm to the concrete jungle!
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: All products by Aveda. Prep damp hair with Volumizing Tonic, massaging into the roots. Blowdry product in at half-speed to increase volume and shine. Sprinkle Pure Abundance Hair Potion into strands to create a matte texture. Use a comb to make a side part to frame face. Backcomb locks at the top of the head with a wide-tooth comb. Separate hair in the back into top and bottom sections. Pull the top section into a loose ponytail and secure, leaving fringe and front layers loose. Divide the bottom section into right and left sections. Backcomb the right section and twist around ponytail to the left side and secure with bobby pins. Backcomb the left section and twist counter-clockwise over ponytail and secure. Pin the remainder of loose hair to the left side of ponytail and tousle for added texture. To finish, set look with Control Force Hair Spray (available June 2010) for maximum hold.
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All makeup by MAC. Apply Face and Body Foundation where needed, but keep face as natural as possible.
