Backstage Beauty: "No Makeup" Makeup & Rockabilly Hair at Proenza Schouler Spring 2012


The inspiration: 1950s, Elvis, rockabilly.

Makeup: Diane Kendall kept the look very, very understated: She blended MAC blush in Love Cloud and Immortal Flower to create a subtle, rosy hue. She then added MAC Sculpting Powder in Bone Beige to add more definition to the cheeks. Kendall finished the look by darkening the models' brows.

Hair: Fekkai stylist Paul Hanlon says that Jack and Lazaro were inspired by Elvis and the 1950s. "Like, how they imagine a girl would look if she put a bunch of pomade in her hair and haphazardly slicked it back with a comb," says Hanlon. He started by spraying in Fekkai Océanique Tousled Wave Spray to give the models' hair texture -- and a little bit of tangle. Hanlon then added Fekkai Coiff Nonchalant Piecing and Forming Wax around the hairline, combing it back with a fine-toothed comb. The rest of the hairwas then pulled into a loose, low knot with a clear elastic hair tie.

Nails: Perfect Formula custom-created the mustard yellow nail shade, Pollen.
