The MAC Cosmetics team (led by Carole Colombani) was in charge of this no-makeup makeup look. It was all about sun-kissed skin, without looking overly-oranged/bronzed. The skin was prepped with Embryollise Lait Créme Concentré to keep it moisturized, then Mac Cream Colour Base in Shell and Fawntastic were used to highlight just above cheekbones and on the cupid's bow. For the eyes there was no mascara used, but shadows were used in Accentuate on the inner corners, Emphasize was used all over lid and extending out almost to the hair line, and Sculpt was used in a halo-effect around the eyes to finish. Mac Paint Pots were used with a duo-fiber brush for sculpting the cheekbones, in taupe-y shades so it's not too much of a typical bronze, but is more like a second skin. For those girls that needed a little extra color on their cheeks, Colombani used just a dab of the peachy shade from the lip palette below (not available until spring 13!) on the apples of the cheeks, applied with her fingertips.
Odile Gilbert led the Kerastase team in creating this 40's-inspired hair look. First she created a deep side part before securing hair into a low ponytail, but left a portion of hair on the right hand side free from the ponytail. Kerastase Sublimateur Jour, a rich conditioning mask, was used all throughout the ends of damp hair, which not only moisturized the hair, but assisted in giving it the wet finish. (I think the models probably really enjoyed having someone put conditioner in their hair rather than teasing it to high Heaven). The ponytail was split into two sections that were twisted around each other in the bun/chignon shape. The section that was left free from the ponytail was combed back and rolled in on itself, then secured with a comb. This section of hair was smoothed and heightened using a fine tooth comb and a lot of Kerastase Double Force Hairspray to lock the style in place. To smooth everything out, and to further add to the wet look, an ample amount of Kerastase Elixir Ultime Moringa Immortel was used on the top portion of the hair.
