Tom Pecheux (MAC): The look this season is inspired by Johnny Depp and Kate Moss when they were together—you know, when she put on those chiffon dresses, and the big parkas? She's very chic and luxurious and a little 1920's. So for the makeup, I went with a mix of futuristic elements, like the silver 'tears' on the inside corners of the eye, and soft, kind of 'rock punk' shadow and liner. I like the girls to look powerful, but not like a dominatrix. I wanted that sensuality...I hate aggressivity. The lip color is a huge controversy—it's very ladylike, so bourgeois, but why not break the rules and add a classic lip to balance out the edgy eye? It's nice to see a grown up young woman.
Paul Hanlon (Fekkai): This time Joseph felt that he wanted his girls to be a bit more mature. So we looked at pictures of women with very very done hair, but at the same time you have to be very careful because that kind of hair can look very old really quickly. This hair almost looks like a shell: it's clean off the face, tight, and really organic looking. I was inspired by that Julien d'Ys kind of world—very sculpted hair that uses product in a really excessive way. We're marcel waving it and using elastic to press into the hair so you almost don't know where it ends, and it becomes 3-D.
