Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear

Donna Karan

Senior Beauty Editor Celia Ellenberg's take:
Hats on the runway present an interesting dilemma for hairdressers: How do you do something that's simple enough to sit well underneath a headpiece, but still complex so that it makes an impact on its own? At Donna Karan, Eugene Souleiman solved that problem with "a detail that was quite graphic and quite ornate." Behold the side twist. "It's masculine and refined," the Wella Professionals global creative director said of the roll, which he prepped with a mixture of Wella Perfect Setting Blow Dry Lotion and Ocean Spritz Beach Texture Spray for a soft, matte finish.

Referencing Karan's "tailored, handsome collection," Charlotte Tilbury wanted to incorporate the designer's palette of black, gray, and red into the makeup in an unexpected way. "We didn't want to go too retro with a red lip, so we thought, How do you give it an eccentric, modern twist?' "

The answer: a red eye. Keeping skin dewy by applying MAC Cream Color Base in Pearl on cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, and along the cupid's bow of the mouth, Tilbury carved out a slight contour with its Pure Sculpting Cream in Pure Sculpture before beefing up brows with its Eye Shadows in Linger and Fling. Then came the "cherry, chocolaty" lids, which the face painter created using a mix of MAC Lipsticks in Partyline, a deep burgundy, and Diva, a purplish crimson. "It's all about the eyes this season," Tilbury declared.
