Backstage Beauty Look of the Day: Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015


THE SHOW: Marc by Marc Jacobs

THE HAIR: Guido Palauwas inspired by Björk's signature hair knots from the early '90s to transform the models into tough girls with true grit. He started by adding texture with Redken's Wind Blown 05 before parting the hair in four places down the center part. The sides were smoothed, and the sections were then twisted into classic pins curls, leaving out the ends for added edge. Before the girls hit the runway, Palau used damps hands, to pull some of the baby hairs loose from the hairline to give a slightly sweaty effect, like they had danced the night away.

THE MAKEUP: Diane Kendal  left the heavy makeup on the dance floor, opting for fresh-from-the-rave, radiant faces. She evened the tone with Jacobs' eponymous Genius Gel SuperCharged Oil Free Foundation, dusting powder over the T-zone. To add the sheen of sweat, she highlighted the cheekbones with the Makeout Lip Lock Moisture Balm. To make the peeepers pop, Kendal blended the Twinkle Pop Eye Stick in Honey Bunny over the lid, sheering the cream up to the brow. She topped off the eye with the lip balm for added shine and used only one coat of mascara. She perfected the natural pout with the Lovermarc Lip Gel in Moody Margot before the models took to the catwalk.

THE MANI: The girls received a touched of sheen with a heavy dose of shine with a coat of Jacobs' upcoming nail polish in Milk topped with a coat of Shiny.
