“Undone glamour” set the tone for the hair and makeup at the CUSHNIE Fall 2017 show. Moroccanoil, Maybelline and Christian Louboutin Beauté worked together to create an easy and elegant look, featuring smooth waves, a subtly dramatic eye and neutral stiletto nails with a flash of metallic.
Moroccanoil Global Brand Ambassador Antonio Corral Calero crafted waves that were specific to each model’s hair texture and length by prepping hair with a generous amount of Moroccanoil Treatment. “I’m applying one pump for each two-inch section. It makes the hair sort of greasy, but I want that because it allows me to build the hair up,” he said as he loosely wrapped the length around a barrel iron, pulling it straight upon release for a looser, more relaxed curl. He then gathered the hair away from the face, finishing the ends with Moroccanoil Smoothing Lotion to keep it in place. He noted “I think the hair pulled back off the face makes her look confident, but also takes confidence to wear.”
With confident hair in check, Maybelline lead Gato stepped in with a more “urban and casual” approach to the makeup for the show. Using light contouring and highlighting to sculpt the face and bring out each model’s unique features, Gato kept the level of sophistication high with a well defined brow using Maybelline Brow Fiber Volumizer and Brow Drama Shaping Chalk Powder. The rest of the face stayed fresh, with clean soft skin, and the upper lash line was dotted in with Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Sleek Onyx. A soft pink lip finished the look with a swipe of Maybelline Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes in Almond Rose.
Christian Louboutin Beauté lead Alicia Torello played off the current wire art nail trend to create “something that mimics that idea but more simply.” A soft nude polish provided a neutral base for a horizontal strip of silver nail art tape, which Torello placed horizontally at varying places along the nail length. “The girls really like long, stiletto nails. They want them every season!”
