We’ve been having a field day with all the new September glossies, and flipping through the latest issue of Flare (one of our favorite Canadian fashion publications), we noticed a beauty editorial that immediately transported us to the Miu Miu Fall ’12 show. Back in March, Pat McGrath went for a retro vibe, tracing around the models’ eyes with blue and white face paint, then topping it off with disklike crystals and a pastel pout. Tearing a page right out of McGrath’s book, makeup artist Greg Wencel achieved a similar effect on up-and-coming model Amanda Nimmo for Flare‘s recent spread. It’s a bold look to be sure—one that should arguably be limited to the runways, magazines, and maybe Cirque du Soleil. Who’s version do you prefer: McGrath’s or Wencel’s? Let us know below.
Despite what the magazines may be telling you, pastel ombré hair highlights are played out. Streaks of pale pink, lavender, and mint green were cute for a while, we’ll admit, but now that the look has become trendy, we’re of the mind that dip-dyeing’s days are over. That is, we were of that mind until we saw this. Adding strands of color through the mid-lengths of your hair is the only way to achieve the rose-tinged “hair bow” Danilo crafted for the December issue of Flare. One of six holiday hairstyles whipped up by the celebrity stylist for the Canadian glossy, this one got to us. We’re suckers for haute hair art. What do you think of the rainbow-flecked updo?
