Backstage at the Alex Perry show was relatively calm and in control. The make-up experts from MAC Cosmetics were on hand to create the signature Perry Girl look: bronzed, perfect, dewy skin, contoured and highlighted with Cream Colour Bases.
RESCU loved the dark bronze, gold, and black smokey winged out eye with a defined brow and a glossy nude lip – so wearable and relatively easy to achieve.
The direction from Alex Perry was bronzed (as though coming back from a European holiday, not fake tan orange) with a gold/bronze feel for the eyes. “More is more!,” said Perry.
Products to Create a Smokey Eye:
Sculpt foundation, Cream Colour Bases in Mid tone Sepia, Hush, Pearl. Bronze, Woodwinked, and Carbon eye shadows, Smolder eye kohl and Plushlash black mascara. Nude Cream Colour Base and Clear lipgloss.
Hair was all about the polished ‘rich girl’ ponytail and Alex entrusted the Redken team, headed up by Maria Ardino of Ardino salon, to achieve the look with polish and ease. “The look we went for was French simplicity. A look that says: “I’m Rich, bitch!,” said Ardino.
Ardino’s tips to achieving this look:
- Work with super clean hair.
- Divide hair into four sections to ensure the look is seamless.
- Redken 23 spray and Redken Vinyl Glam products help to achieve a flawless finish with just enough body and bounce.
- Hot roller the ends for that ‘S’ swish in the ponytail.
