MAKEUP: Diane Kendal for MAC Cosmetics
HAIR: Orlando Pita for Moroccanoil
NAILS: Roxanne Valinoti for CND
SNAPSHOT: Graphic Goddesses
THE SCOOP: Bursting with fresh shades of green, coral, and pink, Carolina Herrera's Spring 2011 collection was inspired by the traditional clothes from Korea -- with colours and prints taken from botanical plates collected in the 18th Century. And the beauty teams rounded out Herrera's designs by creating soft, yet graphic looks.
Lead makeup artist Diane Kendal kept the models' faces natural but added a pop of color by brushing on a brick hued eyeshadow with soft edges. Hairstylist Orlando Pita fashioned models strands into unique updos and ponytails that were held together by barrettes made from hair, mimicking the silhouette of wrapped belts. "When Korean women dress, nothing is out of place and everything is beautifully thought out," said Pita. "My hairstyle is precise and graphic, with no loose or separate pieces." Manicurist Roxanne Valinoti painted the pretty young things nails in a rose-gold hue. "Coming out of a masculine, military styled fall, now we go into spring and this light, dreamy nail colour is perfect."
To recreate the ponytail, gather strands back into a ponytail and spray with MoroccanOil Luminous Hairspray. Add horizontal hair clips and finish with MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine Spray.
