3.1 Phillip Lim:
Hair (Paul Hanlon for Frederic Fekkai): In my humble opinion, this was the most covetable, sexy hair of New York Fashion Week, inspired by the eternal reference, Kate Moss. It’s that elusive, done but not too done look. “She went out dancing all night, spent the night at her boyfriend’s place and then walked off the street into the show.” Using Fekkai’s Luscious Curls Wave Activating Spray, Hanlon used a 1.5 inch curling iron to create very, very loose natural waves. Depending on the length of the girl’s hair, he gathered up free random pieces and looped them in with a bobby pin, to give the effect of a girl’s hair being loosely swept up by a coat collar.
Makeup (Narcelle Daly for NARS): A sophisticated but edgy look. The focus was on perfect, dewy skin with a luminous, sophisticated red/chocolate brown lip. Daly used NARS’ new compact cream foundation (out Fall 2013) to perfect the skin, explaining, “This girl spends quite a bit of time in the mirror before she leaves. She’s not an edgy girl where she just wakes up and goes. She might spend 10-20 minutes.” To achieve the chocolate-brown lip, she filled in the lips using a red brown lip liner (Kenya), deepening the red with a brown eyeliner pencil (Mambo).
Nails (Essie): Deciding that “[his girl] wouldn’t do something traditional,” Lim chose a beige yellow (Sand Tropez) for hands. To get his asphalt/car paint toes, they layered a dense silver (No Place Like Chrome) over a sheer metallic grey (Over the Top.)
