Katie Gallagher Creates A Militia of Nomadic Earth Women

The Show: Katie Gallagher

Hair: Cesar Ramirez at Dop Dop

Makeup: Robert Greene, M.A.C. Cosmetics

Nails: Fleury Rose for Color Club

The Vibe: The forest was the inspiration behind Katie Gallagher’s show, so it should come as no surprise that green was a pervasive color theme. Lead M.A.C. makeup artist, Robert Greene, created bold, bright eyes using Lime shadow over Charcoal shadow. “I’m using really unconventional colors to create a new kind of smokey eye,” explained Greene. “We’re extending the color really far down on the lower section and doing tons of blending so it’s like a watermark with no edges.” To emphasize the eyes, the rest of the face was kept monotone, with pale lips, a bit of tawny blush, and no mascara. 

Nails also popped with a shade of deep evergreen, a custom color made for Gallagher by Color Club. Lead manicurist Fleury Rose painted a whopping 350 decals with the special shade and a matte top coat in advance of the show, and was furiously gluing them to models’ hands. The finishing touch was a gilt border around the nails, which Rose referred to as “picture framing.”
