What is a 1950’s inspired fashion collection without big hair? Hairstylist, Sam McKnight, created a 1950’s Hollywood vibe for the models with volumes, curls, waves, and plenty of hairspray. Sam applied Pantene Pro-V Volume and Body Mousse to the models’ damp hair and blow-dried their hair with a rounded brush. McKnight sectioned off the hair into rollers and brushed the hair out after removal. After combing the hair back, Volume and Body Hairspray was applied to seal it. Hair extensions were not necessary for short hair, while Advanced Keratin Repair Split End Fuser was applied to the ends of the hair to help create texture. Charlotte Tilbury, of MAC Cosmetics, was tasked with creating the “tropical fifties girl”, the secret to the look was all in the brows, golden skin, and strong lip color.
Tilbury prepped the skin with Studio Moisture Fix, and Face and Body Foundation in C5 and C7. To finish the cheeks and temples, Tilbury brushed on Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium Deep and Dark. Pearl Cream Colour Base provided the final addition, used to highlight the cheekbones. She used What a Blast lip pencil and a square lip brush in Morange to define the lips. “For a perfect finish on a strongly-colored lip, always use a lip liner: It’s crucial to trace the lip and keep the color in place,” Tilbury noted. Along the upper lash line, Tilbury applied Coffee eye pencil. Mixing Sculpting Cream Cooper Beech and Richly Honed, she also applied the mixture from the eyelid to the brow. Adding individual eyelashes to the end of the top lashes, the top lashes were then curled with Haute & Naughty mascara and the brows were squared off. There you have it, the perfect fifties beach girl hailing down the runway at Milan Fashion Week.
