Freckle-Faced Hippie Chicks, Backstage At Chloé-------
If we had to call it right here, right now, spider lashes would be the trend we are most excited about for Fall. We loved them at Alberta Ferretti and ogled them at Lanvin, but it was Charlotte Tilbury’s mastery with the mascara wand at Chloé that really sealed the deal. “It’s a hybrid between Anita Pallenberg and Charlotte Rampling,” the flame-haired face painter said of the look for Hannah MacGibbon’s Fall show, for which Tilbury set out to intermingle Pallenberg’s rock chick vibe with Rampling’s “chicer side of hippie.” That meant a “lived-in” brown eye, courtesy of MAC Cream Colour Base in Dark Brown, which was smoothed across lids while its Eye Pencil in Teddy, a medium brown, was smudged underneath the lower lash line. Then came MAC’s Fibre Rich Lash Mascara in black, which Tilbury heaped onto both the upper and lower lash lines for a “cloggy” effect. (For those of you wondering how to properly sport lower-lash mascara without the risk of pigment residue slowly winding up on your skin, Tilbury recommends dabbing translucent powder underneath the lash line. Now you know.) Finishing touches came in the form of an orange/caramel lip coated with MAC Lipstick in Freckletone and that music festivalgoer staple, freckles. “We’re just putting them where the sun would hit you,” Tilbury said of the small spots she stenciled along the tops of cheekbones and across the nose bridge using MAC Lip Pencil in Hodge Podge.
Luigi Murenu’s middle-parted waves were also reminiscent of the Coachella set. Prepped with John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Blow Dry Lotion and curled with a 2″-iron through the mid-lengths for bend, it smacked of the easy summer hair we’ve been dreaming about since winter set in a long five months ago.
