Backstage At Chloé, A Vision In Caramel
With the arrival of new designer Clare Waight Keller, the Chloé girl has gotten “a little bit more chic and caramel-y” for Spring, according to makeup artist Lucia Pieroni, who built on the “super-gorgeous, super-natural” makeup that typically colors this show by enabling yet another appearance of Spring’s monochrome makeup trend. Pieroni layered honey-hued pigments onto lids, cheeks, and lips accordingly, relying on four key products tailored to match individual skin tones to ensure a uniform finish: MAC Paintpots in Groundwork and Constructivist, which were dotted with its Metal X Eye Shadow in Fusion Gold around the temples for highlight, and its Lipsticks in Fresh Brew and Myth. “It’s not a nude mouth,” Pieroni stressed as she filled in brows with MAC Eyeshadow in Copperplate, Omega, and Typographic and slicked lashes with a few coats of brown mascara. “It’s meant to be quite present,” albeit neutral-toned, she said, which suited Waight Keller’s “very tonal and makeup-y” look just fine. Hair guru Eugene Souleiman added to the series of adjectives that best describe the quintessential Chloé girl, calling her “sexy, gorgeous, fresh, raw, young, and healthy,” before getting slightly more specific and pointing out that his product-less coifs were meant to look like “French Vogue fashion editors”—so, you know, chic. “We’re just using water and shampoo, ” he said lathering strands with Wella Enrich Volume Shampoo or its Brilliance line for dry, color-treated manes. “I wanted the hair to be light and free so it moved,” he explained.
