Diane Kendal (MAC): This season he [Alexander] took a quite serious approach, there are tweeds, a lot of lamination, shrink-wrapping—so he wanted the girls to look quite strong and bit warrior-like. This is a very sculpted makeup look, very androgynous—we’re doing sculpted eyebrows, filling them in very straight. Then we’re using new sculpting cream colors from MAC to contour the cheekbones, creases of the eyelids, and sides of the nose, and then a highlighter for the tops of the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and under the eyebrows. Just lip balm on the lips, and a dusting of powder all over, and basically that’s it.
Guido (Redken): The hair today is effortless, which is always very cool. We’re doing a very simple center part, a clean part, with the hair smoothed down and tucked behind the ears. We’re using Satinwear to blow-dry the hair straight, and then we’re wetting the ends to let those dry naturally. It’s very modern-looking, minimal hair—there’s no reference to any particular person or era. It’s very simple, but simple is what girls want to wear…it’s having the right texture and that clean center part that really gives it a look; you can have a great effect without a lot of processes or products.
Ed note: No, that is not Daria Werbowy in the pictures (though her cohorts Gisele and Carmen Kass walked in the show), it's Kati Nescher, the German newcomer who killed it in Europe last season and is taking New York Fashion Week by storm. Keep your eyes peeled for this one...she is a star in the making.
