Outside of the clothes, brows were the stars of the show at Christopher Kane. Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni brushed arches up and filled them in with NARS Brow Perfector, the finished product resembling a young Brooke Shields. "These brows should look naturally full, not painted on," Pieroni explained. She created a "shaft of light" down the center of faces with Illuminator in Copacabana and a forthcoming Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Andromeda. Highlights were placed over cheekbones, the bridge and tip of the nose, Cupid's bow, and chin. A touch of Pure Matte Lipstick in Bangkok was pressed onto models' mouths like a stain, and lashes—in what has become a defining feature for Fall 2014—were left bare.
Kane simply wanted "the girls to look like how they look," said mane master Guido Palau. "Younger designers don't tend to reference iconic women—they get off on how the model looks naturally. Little moments rather than big moments," he noted. To craft these "little moments," Palau used Redken's Shine Flash for texture and sheen, keeping the length fairly straight and flat. To finish, he made a sharp center part and nonchalantly tucked the hair behind the ears. In the end, these subtle nuances brought the larger picture to life.
