Anyone who has ever attempted the 'no make-up make-up' look or its hair equivalent will know that it's the biggest oxymoron in beauty.
However, add a rather fabulous hair stylist and make-up artist into the mix and things start to look a whole lot simpler. Maybelline make-up artist Charlotte Willer created her covetable complexion at the DKNY show using BB cream and blush (as a contour) before finishing with a touch of mascara and a nice pair of bold brows to add a touch of strength.
Meanwhile, our favourite Englishman in New York, Wella super-stylist Eugene (complete with newly acquired nose stud!), had similar designs over in hair. In his words it’s ‘classy but not uptight’ so translated into hair terms, that’s straight, shiny hair (thanks to Wella’s Hydrate Finish which I refrained from wrestling out of his hands there and then). And with an hour to kill inbetween shows, I got a rare chance to see it in all its glory as it wafted its way down the catwalk. Hair poetry in motion.
