Sticky and Sweet at Miu Miu


Miu Miu BeautyI have firmly committed to the lipstick camp, mainly for one reason: I refuse to pull my hair off my mouth every time the wind blows. Sure, that shine is tempting, and I highly recommend gloss to girls who can deal—I just don’t happen to be one of them. But that factor I can’t stand was exactly the point today at Miu Miu. “Pat [McGrath]‘s doing a very heavy gloss, and then I took the hair and stuck it to the lips,” said hair pro Guido Palau. “It lends a little bit of sexiness and [provides] a naive sexuality.” Let’s just say I won’t be taking this look from runway to reality.

As far as getting that natural texture we’ve seen all season long, however, that’s something I can get into. Palau prepped damp strands with Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Treatment, then dried them with a round brush to add a bit of bend. Next, he scrunched sections with his hands as he dried, using a curling iron to add additional movement where needed. A messy center part was made before tucking hair behind ears. The final touch: gluing a few pieces to models’ pouts via the gooey but gorgeous cosmetic. Pretty slick.
