The Vibe: Clean, natural and wintertime windblown. To match this season’s Icelandic-inspired collection, with its soft flowing lines, lead stylist Martin Cullen created a subdued and youthful look. He washed each model’s hair with Phyto shampoo and conditioner before drying with an amika NRG professional hair dryer and straightening locks with an amika ceramic styler. “We wanted to give an almost undercut and shaved away look to the hair,” said Cullen. To achieve the ultra-sleek style on the left-side of models’ heads, Cullen made a deep part and pulled hair tight, stitching it in near the right ear. The rest of hair was dropped behind the back into the clothes, and slightly puffed out above collars to create the illusion of a faux bob.
Dick Page, lead makeup artist for Shiseido, mimicked the rosy look you get from blustery winds using the brand’s new lacquer rouge lip colors (coming this August). “We didn’t want it to look too much like makeup,” said Page. “So there’s just an energized, alive look to the face.” To create a glowing frostbitten and sunburnt appearance, Page dabbed the shade “Drama” onto cheeks, forehead, chin, and the bridge of the nose, then smeared the hues out. To soften and blend out the color, Page also brushed on foundation. He used luminizing eye color in Paperwhites as well as a touch of shimmering cream eye color in Pale Shell and Mist to twinkle of pink and white. For a final touch, Page dabbed the pale shell and mist to the cupid’s bow area of the upper lip.
