Backstage Beauty Beat: Theyskens’ Theory


The Show: Theyskens' Theory

The Hair: The hair look for Theyskens’ Theory required a ton of product. With Kerastase products on hand (literally and figureatively), lead hairstylist Odile Gilbert crafted a look that was shiny — almost wet — and structured. Kerastase Short Mania was spread over the top of the head along with a healthy helping of Ciment Thermique to keep it all in place. Then, Gilbert secured hair at the nape of the neck with a loose elastic, which was removed right before the show. The result was a stiff yet wavy style, made incredibly shiny by Kerastase Gloss Appeal on the ends.

The Makeup: Makeup artist James Kaliardos for MAC Cosmetics created an enchanting look that he described as having “a broken Victorian doll feeling.” BB Cream was applied to even out the skin and leave a delicate, fresh look. He then used a copper eyeliner to draw a line in the inner crease of the eye. The eyelids got a layer of a creamy pink shadow, which was illuminated by a swipe of clear gloss. The gloss gave a shiny finish and even coated the tips of lashes for a magical feel. Curled lashes, brushed-up brows and pink cheeks completed the doll-like look.

The Mani: For a clean nail look, manicurists brushed nails with two coats of Essie Allure and sealed it with top coat. Toes were swiped with only one layer of Mademoiselle for an overall chic and natural look.
