Backstage Report: Proenza Schouler
The Inspiration: "A combination of Belluschi architecture and cars in the '50s," said MAC makeup artist Diane Kendal in a statement about the show's beauty inspiration. Retro was also on the mind for Fekkai's lead hairstylist Paul Hanlon, as he pulled hair back into a deconstructed-yet-soft rockabilly look.
Hair: To achieve the messy look, Hanlon stprayed dry hair with Fekkai Oceanique Touseled Wave Spray and purposefully tangled locks with his hands while using a dryer on a low heat setting. Next, he applied wax to the sections around the face and combed it up and back to mimic a '50s rockabilly babe. All hair was gathered into a low and knotted bun, tied with a clear hair elastic, and made messier by pulling out random pieces of hair.
Makeup: After applying foundation, Kendal used MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder on the center areas of the face for "a polished effect"think from the bridge of the nose to the cheeks and the center of the forehead. For a light flush, she used MAC's Immortal Flower blush (available next spring) and moisturized the lips with a quick swipe of the brand's Lip Conditioner Stick SPF 15. Eyebrows were "squared off" for an architectural feel; try at home with an eyebrow pencil that matches you hair shade.
