Bold dramatic eyes have been trends at both the Prabral Gurung show and Jason Wu.
At the Wu show, makeup artist Diane Kendal created a diffused, emerald-green eye. “It’s Ming dynasty and 1940’s Hollywood,” Kendal said while building up lids using MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Tealo to create a base for its Eye Kohl in Minted, a light green, that she layered through the crease.
Sunday Riley was on-site to provide mini facials. She used her Ceramic Slip clay-based cleanser and her Good Genes treatment cream, which contains lactic acid and lemongrass to clarify and smooth skin while stimulating circulation, allowing Riley to create a totally natural, healthy glow.
To complete the warrior look, the “dominatrix ponytail” was the hairstyle of choice, where Odile Gilbert tightly pulled hair into a high updo with waist-grazing extensions. Products included Kérastase’s Fibre Architecte to smooth and treat dry ends, and Kérastase Double Force Hairspray for hold.
Note that the only girl that didn’t get the ponytail treatment was Tao Okamato. “Jason wanted Tao to represent the boy in in the film In the Mood for Love,” Gilbert said, explaining Okamoto’s sleek, Cary Grant-era iconic men’s pompadour that appears throughout Wong Kar-wai’s classic film.
