“Haphazard” Hair and Makeup, Backstage at Burberry Prorsum
Some things you can be pretty sure of when it comes to Burberry Prorsum: They will have an A-list front row, they’ll have the hottest models walking in the show (Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Edie Campbell, and Suki Waterhouse for starters), and the hair and makeup will be both effortless and wearable.
Today the house delivered on all fronts. Inspired by the painted pieces in the collection, makeup artist Wendy Rowe used broad brushstrokes to apply an aubergine powder across lids. To make the color movable, she topped it with Burberry Fresh Glow (a liquid highlighter). “The [shadow] should look a little haphazard, almost like the girls have applied it themselves,” she said. To complement the eyes, a new, plum-toned Burberry nail lacquer also made an appearance: Elderberry (available Fall 2014).
Neil Moodie created what he described as “day two hair.” Bumble and Bumble Tonic and a curling iron were used to form natural waves that looked groomed but not overstyled. Just before the girls took to the runway, Moodie tucked the length into the collars of the multiple trenchcoats in the collection and pulled some strands loose to complete the cool-girl persona.
