Disco Hair, Bleached Brows and Forest Green Eyes at Marc Jacobs SS 2011

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

At  Marc Jacobs‘ recent showing at New York Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2011, guests we’re brought back to the 70′s. Nars’ François Nars, Redken’s Guido Palau and CND’s Jan Arnold worked on the make up, hair and nails, respectively.

François created deep emerald smoke around the eyes then smeared on some Vaseline for high-shine. Dark eyes were paired with matte burgundy lips and a touch of his signature Orgasm blush on the cheeks. Eyebrows were bleached,  an interesting contrast to full bushy brows, that has been the trend lately. Guido alternated among four hairstyles fit for a disco diva with lots of volume and frizz, with a touch of 30′s influence. Nails were kept flesh-toned and topcoated with a mattyfing polish. Stylelist quoted Jan Arnold saying, “This is the first time I’ve seen nails and brows that matched.”
