Beauty Trends: Disco Makeup Video
Glossy shine and metallic hues ruled the runway this season. Find out how to create this makeup look at home.
So, the important trend that we saw for this season is the disco trend and actually we saw beginning the peak of it in the fall-winter shows when we had shows like Oscar Dela Renta and Phillip Lim and Carolina Herrera showing things that were a little bit more slinky. They have more of a silkier fabric. With some hair and make up, it was the last days of disco. So, at Phillip Lim, hairstylist, Odile Gilbert who is sponsored by Beta was doing a Farrah Fawcett-style clip to the hair. The hair was blow dried upward instead of downwards to get that the Farrah Fawcett style, as people called them. So, at Carolina Herrera, she had silver lame sort of slinky fabrics in her dresses and she also had this purple, smoky eye which had more of this exotic or most like cat eye shape. To balance the smoky eye at Carolina Herrera, makeup artist, Diane Kendal, chose to do a very glossy lip, a play on the whole idea of having a disco ball and having it reflect onto your face and getting that sort of highlight to your mouth. If you look at Chloe, you're basically transported back to that whole feeling of like, you know, Lauren Hutton or Jerry Hall coming out of Studio 54 wearing those like really tone-on-tone outfits and the makeup is also an extension of that, so you have, you know, your metallics and the bronze family and then you have a little bit of a bronze shadow with your eye. With their hair, they have that really shinny, shinny, super glossy, polished and brushed out, wavy hair. So at Oscar Dela Renta, Gucci Westman who is Revlon's makeup artist was actually inspired by 80s cosmetics as we have the girls like running across the street and their hairs are blowing in the wind and they looked really made-up and they have a lot of shine on their eyes and a lot of shine in their lips and they just looked done.
