Although it may have seemed that all that went into prepping the models for the fall '13 Suno show was an extra hand to help with a zipper and a word of encouragement — appearing perfectly non-made up is still a process. With "modern armor" as the battle cry, the makeup looks were all about weathering a brutal winter. Static-y ponytails were "an invocation of winter," said lead hairstylist Odile Gilbert for Kérastase. To give the ponytail volume, she applied a healthy dose of Kérastase Mousse Substantive to hair, then blow-dried it upside down with a Mason Pearson brush. After parting hair in the middle, she created a low ponytail and ran her hands from the base of the ponytail to the crown of the head. Voilà: instant static!
As for the skin, key makeup artist Carole Colombani for MAC created a dewy-faced look that was light on the makeup. Her secret to a glowing complexion: MAC's Matchmaster foundation, which she brushed on and left powder-free. "It's okay to shine a little bit," she joked. "You're alive, after all." Check out how the magic was done in our video, above.
