Presentation: Haus Alkire
Hair: Nick Irwin for TIGI
Makeup: Lyne Desnoyers for M.A.C.
The Vibe: Abstract and edgy, but still feminine. To mirror the theme of detailed graphic designs and textures in the Haus Alkire collection, TIGI’s global creative director and lead stylist Nick Irwin created an inventive, complex style. “We wanted movement on the top, so we created this crisscross weave,” said Irwin of the detailed ‘do. Important products to get this look were Session Series Wet Look Gel and Session Series True Wax, which were literally painted on to hair using a color brush to create a vinyl-like appearance.
For the makeup look, it was all about the arches. Lead artist Lyne Desnoyers for M.A.C. was coloring in a small section at the front of the brows near the nose with a soon-to-be-released Dark Currant cream color. Cheeks, eyes, and lips were dusted with Bone Beige Sculpting Powder for a clean look, and cheeks were given a few extra swipes to add an extra bit of contouring.
