LGFW Spring 2012 Backstage Beauty Report: Pink Tartan
Backstage was awash in a sea of sexy Brigitte Bardot-inspired beauties before the
Pink Tartan show last night – and there was much buzz over Andej Pejic presence (the male model walked the show and closed it walking hand in hand with Pink Tartan designer Kimberly Newport-Mimran).
“Dirty, bedroom hair,” is how Eric Del Monaco, L’Oreal Paris Official Hair Artist and Colourist, describes the look. To get this
hairstyle, he parted the hair in the centre and used a large barrel curling iron and worked on each section (three in the back in two panels, two on each side in two panels) at midshaft, wrapping the hair only in one twist around the barrel. Holding the twist in the curling iron for only 10 seconds, he also says that a light spritz of Elnett hairspray before curling each piece and then quickly applying the curling iron will give the best results (“If you wait too long, the product will evaporate and won’t hold the curl as well.”). After each section was curled, he had the models lean over to toss their hair down and then finger-brushed it out using some Studio Fix Architect Shine Wax he’d warmed in the palms of his hands. To complete the
soft and messy hair look, with some more wax, he rubbed in circular motions at the roots of the hair.
The Bardot look continued with the 60s-inspired makeup created by Eddie Malter, L’Oreal Paris Official Makeup Artist.
Brows were subtly bold with L’Oreal Wear Infinite Eyeshadow Quad 821 and L’Oreal Brow Stylist Brow Shaping pencil. On the eyes, Eddie used L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Flashback Silver 015 only on the crease and then use Lineur Intense eyeliner in Carbon Black to line the eyes in “an almost straight line, from the outside in, but only one-third of the outer eye,” he says. Top lashes were then played up with many coats of Voluminous False Lashes. The face was contoured using Studio Secrets Sweep Blush #80 and lips, which had been dabbed with a bit of
foundation, were given a hit of shine with Le Gloss in Clear 150.
