The old adage about art imitating life was clearly at play backstage at New York Fashion Week.
With stints assisting just about every top hairstylist in fashion along the way.
Including riffs on the classic red lip, metallic everything and museum-worthy hairstyles.
The makeup artist, along with hairstylist Guido Palau, reimagined classic beauty staples for 90 models and 50-plus dancers that walked the designer's Fall 2020 runway.
Jacobs assembled Guido Palau, Pat McGrath, Jin Soon Choi and Mei Kawajiri to create completely unique beauty looks for each of his 60-plus models.
Two trends that have ruled the fall shows made another appearance on Maria Grazia Chiuri's runway in Paris.
No-makeup makeup; no-hair hair; no-nails nails.
They joined an A-list model lineup and backstage beauty team for the Japanese designer's show, orchestrated in large part by Katie Grand, who found him on Instagram.
Also trending, per the iconic Italian label: "A Clockwork Orange"-style eye makeup.
This beauty look had everything: vintage inspiration, pastel hair dye, buzz cuts, exaggerated chignons, up-to-the-brows eye shadow...
There's nothing subtle going on here.
Think banana clips, pool noodles, bungee cords and even hair itself.
"If you want a long career, it's not about looking back, it's always about looking forward."
"I try to break down stereotypes, to change the way the industry views women, to create more opportunities for women of color and to change the voice that we have in the business."
Who knew there were so many different ways you could use eyeliner?
It took an eight-hour process to create a show-stopping "rose quartz" hair color.
It's the edgy haircut you kept seeing all over the Fall 2017 runways.
Plus, sought-after hairstylist Guido Palau talks staying calm during the madness of fashion week.
Bowl cuts and bleached brows: What can't he convince them to do?
Glitter freckles, gleaming star tears and perfectly windblown hair. Swoon.
