The Show: Helmut Lang
The Nails: Essie
The Makeup: Sunday Riley
The Hair: TIGI
The Vibe: All natural. The models backstage at last night’s Helmut Lang show looked as though they had just returned from a chic camping trip. The makeup by Sunday Riley was minimal and focused on fresh skin and the hair by TIGI was roughed up and pulled back into loose, low messy ponytails.
Ana-Maria for Essie spoke to the inspiration for the nails: “since the Helmut Lang collection is inspired more by an earthy, forest-y look with a lot of cool tones, we didn’t want to put a lot of obvious color on the nails,” she said. “You don’t have to have a color stand out, it can still look sophisticated just by giving it a matte finish.” To achieve the “no-manicure manicure,” Essie manicurists applied either Naked Truth or BBF Boy Best Friend, depending on the model’s skin tone, and finished all nails with Matte About You, a matte topcoat.
