Lush Lashes and Locks, Backstage at Versace
“Donatella simply wanted glamorous, but more of a clean glamour,” explained Pat McGrath. Gone was the smudgy liner from Spring 2014, but the double set of faux lashes remained. Eyes were further emphasized with a taupe shadow in the contours, and brows were softly groomed. A tawny lipstick and gloss polished off the lips. “This is her version of natural makeup,” McGrath said of the designer, who sports a strangely similar look.
The sixties were referenced yet again backstage by Guido Palau, who called upon the era by creating volume at the crown. After extensions were added in for thickness, the rest of the hair was kept “poker straight” using a combination of Redken Pillow Proof Two Day Extender and Guts (a volumizing spray foam), then subsequently flatironed. After backcombing the Bardot-esque bump in with a rattail comb, the style was set with Forceful 23 hair spray. “Per the usual, it’s very glamorous hair for a very high-maintenance woman,” Palau summarized. Seeing as this is the house of Versace, we would expect nothing less.—Amber Kallor
