Mermaids on Holiday at Monique Lhuillier

The scene backstage at Monique Lhuillier this evening was all about the life aquatic. Odile Gilbert for Kérastase matched the theme of the show by creating hair fit for a mermaid: center parted, wet-looking, and extra wavy. The just-out-of-the-water effect came from applying loads and loads of Elixir Ultime serum and the waves were achieved by using a triple-barrel iron.

The makeup was similarly inspired by “Jerry Hall on holiday in Mozambique” with a touch of mermaid thrown in for good measure. Lead artist Val Garland for MAC was creating the effect by applying bright blue Electric Eel shadow all over the lids and blending up into the creases and then adding a touch of custom mixed gold on the inner corners.


We’re not ready to go full mermaid on our hair just yet but we do love a drop of rastase Elixir Ultime for luxe, shiny strands.
