Copper Cat-Eyes And Twiggy Hair, Backstage At Chloé
“There’s a slight sixties silhouette, but she didn’t want the makeup to look sixties,” Diane Kendal said of Claire Waight Keller’s Spring collection for Chloé. So Kendal borrowed the idea of a retro cat-eye and tweaked it for the here and now with a rectangular shape and an unusual hue: copper.
“[Waight Keller] wanted to use color on the face and this is just the color I liked,” the makeup artist said of the Smoked Paprika cream eye shadow from MAC’s Fall Trend Palette that she slicked across lids, squaring it off toward the inner and outer corners of the eye and topping it with MAC Pigment in Copper Sparkle. Skipping the mascara, as has become her signature for Spring, Kendal drew a fine black cream line onto the upper lash line, resisting her usual urge to brush on contours and settling instead for a hint of MAC Blush in Something Special.
“Sort of Twiggy” is how Guido Palau described the deep side parts that were prepped with Redken Wax Blast 10 High-Impact Finishing Spray and its Powder Refresh dry shampoo for a flat, matte texture. “It’s got the ease of a half-up, half-down,” Palau said of lengths that were pulled into a loose elastic for a style what was neither a knot nor a bun, he insisted, just an effortless, swept-up look. “This season, it’s been more about nuance, rather than big statements.”
