The Show: Alice + Olivia
Hair: Anthony Cole for Sebastian Professional
Makeup: Sarah Lucero for stila Cosmetics
The Vibe: A Gothic fairytale. Sarah Lucero, pro makeup artist for stila, created a dark, punky look to complement designer Stacy Bendet’s collection. Of the inspiration Lucero said, “she’s at a dinner party but a haunted house dinner party. So it’s very whimsical, and fun and a little theatrical. The eyes and lips are very dense, very bold, very dramatic, so we’re just creating a very sexy shape with a black stila Smudge Crayon.” The Smudge Crayons are new for spring and combine a primer, shadow, and liner in one. They’re available in eight shades, from Midnight Blue to their super-popular Kitten. The lips were covered in Long Wear Lip Color in Daring.
The hair, by Anthony Cole for Sebastian, was surprisingly demure compared to the makeup. Cole said that the style was driven by Bendet, who wanted the hair to be laid back and not too put together. “She basically wanted something that looked like the girl just came home from work, and is going to a dinner party, but had really short notice,” explained Cole of the low chignons he and his team were creating. To get the laid-back ‘do, stylists prepped the hair with Sebastian Mousse Forte and Sebastian Whipped Cream Conditioning Styling Whip before pulling the majority of hair into a low ponytail, leaving a top section of hair from the crown all the way forward, long and loose. Next he twisted the ponytail to create a bun and then let the top section of hair fall freely before strategically pinning the errant pieces into the bun.
