If there's one thing New York Fashion Week has taught us, it's that the '90s are back in a big way. At Proenza Schouler, Diane Kendal created a makeup look inspired by the early part of the decade. Dark matte lips and nearly bare skin were a throwback to the days of Singles.
To create this look, Kendal focused on moisturizing the skin instead of fussing with foundation. A dark brown cream base from MAC provided the eye makeup and contour underneath the cheeks. She filled in the eyebrows for depth, leaving the focus on the lip. She used Charred Red and Smoked Purple lipsticks, applying them intensely in the center. "It's not a hard line," she said. "It's quite soft." A dab of black eye shadow in the center created more intensity.
The hair was just as simple. Lead stylist Didier Malige aimed for a relaxed, no-fuss look. "It's about building a texture," he explained. "It has to look kind of static and untouched." To get the look, he worked Fekkai Coiff Bouffant through hair, squeezed it with fingers, and used Fekkai Coiff Bouffant spray gel to provide soft hold and movement. "It's the same feeling as last season," he said. Cue the Mudhoney.
