Backstage At Carolina Herrera, Go Big Or Go Home
“She wanted big hair, big hair,” Orlando Pita said yesterday, recounting Carolina Herrera’s specific directive about the beauty look for her Fall show. Like a good collaborator, Pita obliged her, giving her the biggest hair we’ve seen this week. To build the foundation inside the style as well as maintain the voluminous shape, Pita spritzed models’ strands with copious amounts of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong, back-combing as he went to achieve height. “It’s nice to do something different—to break the mold,” Pita continued, throwing out words like “graphic” and “bold” to describe the mass of hair that was contained around the hair line by a simple piece of black elastic and occasionally tied at the bottom with a bow.
Because the hair statement was so, er, big, makeup artist Diane Kendal kept the face intentionally “fresh and bare.” Using MAC’s Mineralize skincare, she applied a light layer of its Face and Body Foundation before she carved out cheeks with MAC Sculpting Powder in Sculpt, adding a touch of its Blush in Tenderling on the apples for a hint of warmth. Filling in brows, Kendal skipped mascara—something she’s made a habit of for Fall—and colored in mouths with MAC Lip Liner in Spice, which she topped with a clear balm to emulsify the matte pigment ever so slightly.
