Plaits & Diamante Eyelashes at Prophetik

This is the second season that I’ve styled and I loved the hair and make up for the SS11 look. Tim Furssedonn, International Creative Director for created the hair look and Lan Nguyen created the makeup look. The theme was midnight garden and we wanted the models to have a very otherworldly look that was youthful and fairy like.

Toni & Guy were kind enough to send these instructions – here’s how to get the look:

• Prep hair with label.m Volume Mousse and roughly dry to build texture

• Divide hair in two uneven sections and plait both from the back of the head forwards, close to the scalp and secure

• Distress the plait with the fingers and place in hair pieces to build a 3D effect

• Finish with a light coating of label.m Hairspray and Shine Spray Must-have Products label.m Volume Mousse, label.m Hairspray, label.m Shine Spray. Session Kit – Label.m, Pintail Comb, elastic, grips

…and here is a guide sent by Lan Nguyen for the makeup:

Make up Inspiration: Ethereal mermaids with sparkling and magical eyes.

You can recreate the look for a night out by customizing your eyelashes and adding a few diamante sparkles at the corner of your eyes. Or apply a soft splash of glitter under and above lash lines.

The skin was prepped with Perfeckt skin gel primer to even out the skin. We then used a pale concealer around the eyes and around the cheekbones to pale out the skin. Soft peach and pink eye shadow was brushed passed softly pass the eyebrows. Dark pink eye shadow was used to contour the sockets and blended outwards to make the eye look more doll like and wider.

Using mixing medium to help the glitter stick on the eyebrows and sparsely around the inner corners and above brow bone pressing gently with the fingers. Eyelashes were then attached with crystal beads customized a few days before the show. Final touch was adding the crystals randomly using duo glue to stick them to the skin. Lips were nude with a peach gloss.
