James Kaliardos (Nars): “Kate and Laura were very much inspired by the romance and nostalgia of their early childhood, which here starts off with the Dolomites Duo Eyeshadow, which will be new for fall. The reddish-brown is going full-strength on the eyelid and up to and in the eyebrows. It’s sort of strange to use this color in the eyebrow because normally we use a more muted, tawny grey color rather than a red, but it looks really interesting with the eye shadow going all the way up. We use the brown underneath, too. It’s like a full-circle eye with soft edges. Then we use the lavender color on the inner corner and a little bit on the center of the lid, just to soften the brown.
And then the glittery mouth—to me, it's classic. I wasn’t thinking of this at all before, but if you picture Pretty Woman or Cinderella— or maybe like the '70s TV version of Cinderella—this is what they would have on. There's a brown version and a pink version—we line the lip with a pencil, and then we made up a mash of loose glitter and either dark or light lipstick. I thought it would be dry and cakey and falling off the girls' mouths, but it's a miracle; it's just so cool. If you try this at home, try using a couple shades of glitter because it adds dimension—gold and mauve, and brown and rust.
We wanted really perfect skin, so we used powder and concealer and the Cream Compact Foundation. Then, blush: Unlawful, which we're using in a sort of '80s-blush style, angular on the cheekbones. Then we use the pink, sheer Anguilla Multiple on top, so it’s kind of pinky and cute.”
Odile Gilbert (John Frieda): “We did easy, young, long hair. We used the Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Leave-In Conditioner and gave the girls four braids. Then, they go to the makeup chair, and when they come back, we undo the braids and we have natural waves. We didn't apply any heat or anything. All the girls have clips, with the twist, and all but one has long extensions.”
