China Machado Meets Meryl Streep, Backstage At Suno
The super-high, teased-out pompadour is a favorite with hair stylists looking to create androgynous glamour. It can also be hyper-feminized, as evidenced by its two early cameos this week—first at Ruffian, where Bumble and Bumble’s Neil Moodie was doing socialite-style “morning-after” hair, and then last night at Suno, where Odile Gilbert was channeling Avedon muse, China Machado. “Teasing, mousse, more teasing,” Gilbert said of her incarnation of the sixties style. Prepping hair with Kérastase Ciment Thermique leave-in heat-activated reconstructing milk and its Résistance Mousse Volumactive, Gilbert blew hair dry and coated it with Kérastase Elixir Ultime for shine. She then back-combed the top section, which would ultimately get tucked into a tight French twist pinned in back. Makeup artist Carole Colombani added Meryl Streep in Out of Africa to designers Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty’s inspirational beauty directives. “Baby skin” is how the face painter described her complexion objective, which she achieved by adding a rosy glow to models’ cheeks with a mix of MAC’s forthcoming lipsticks in Creative Energy, a sheer peach, and Raise a Glass, a sheer pink. To fashion-ize the whole experience a bit, Colombani incorporated a graphic element in the form of an elongated line drawn along the upper lash line with MAC’s new-for-Fall Pro Longwear Eye Shadow in Makeup Your Mind, a slate gray, which she extended outward toward the temple and mixed with water as a makeshift mascara for lower lashes. MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy, a dark brown, drawn along the inner rims of eyes and a few coats of its Haute & Naughty Mascara added definition.
