Models sported a gorgeous and defined smoky eye at DVF and little else on their faces — perfectly capturing that French girl insouciance.
Very little base was used. The models with perfect complexions went sans foundation, while those who needed a little bit of coverage wore a touch of tinted moisturiser. The blush was flesh-toned — Silent Nude — from the Christopher Kane collection.
Brows were enhanced with brow product but kept mostly natural. The makeup artists simply followed the natural shape and thickness of the models' brows.
As the main focus of this look, up to four products were used to create the intense, black smokiness around the eyes. The Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Sycorax was used both wet and dry for added intensity while the Eyeliner in Black Moon defined the eyes. The waterline was then lined and smudged with the Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto. Finally the smoked out look was complete with a touch of mascara.
Lips were kept skin-toned to to keep the vibe casual. Think some of our favourite French-style stars like Carine Roitfeld and Caroline de Maigret. The makeup artists backstage used the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Sex Machine — a pale pink — on all the models.
The models' hair was swept into a chic and simple ballerina-esque bun. The hair at the crown was smoothed down, while a few loose pieces at the ends of the bun, stopped the look from veering into school marmish territory.
