The Marchesa fashion show on Feb. 18 during New York Fashion Week was pure glamour and opulence. The dark lips and 1920s-inspired hair was very ‘Great Gatsby’ — get the exact beauty look below.
At the Marchesa Fall 2015 Fashion Show, the beauty look was vampy and pretty, with a glamourous ’20s twist. In fact, it was very similar to a look Revlon brand ambassador Emma Stone rocked in 2013! Get the hair and makeup breakdown from the show right here.
Marchesa Runway — Hair & Makeup For Fall 2015
Revlon Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman lead the makeup look and told us:
“This look was all about a cool, modern take on old Hollywood glam. Taking inspiration from the New York Great Gatsby era, I wanted to create a more youthful interpretation appearing as though she had been dancing all night. Using Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow in Not Just Nudes and Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art + Lid + Line + Lash in Burnish Bling, I created a copper eye that was subtle yet elegant.
As the focus of the look, I created a bold dark lip using Revlon Lip Liner in Raisin with Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry. For the final touch, I used Revlon PhotoReady SkinLights to create a flawless luminous finish on the face and body.”
Celebrity Manicurist Jin Soon told me about the nails backstage: “It’s a cult classic, vampy color. We started with nude nails but we switched to Revlon’s Vixen. It’s old Hollywood glam but a modern, young version. You must use a base coat, then two coats of Vixen, then a top coat.”
Marchesa Hair: A Glamorous Faux Bob
Hair was designed by Antonio Corral Calero for Moroccanoil. Here’s the exact how to:
“Starting with damp hair, apply a cocktail of Moroccanoil Treatment and Volumizing Mousse from root-to-tip to create the perfect styling foundation. To ensure lift, apply Moroccanoil Root Boost to the roots of the hair throughout the entire head. Rough dry hair.
Once dry, create deep left side part. The part should start directly above the arch of the brow and continue to the crown of the head on a slightly rounded angle.
Beginning at the nape of the neck, wrap ½” sections of hair backwards around a ¾” barrel iron. Continue this motion until you reach the crown.
At the sides and top of the head, wrap ½” sections of hair forwards (towards the face) around a ¾” barrel iron. The change in motion will allow the hair to fall into a 20’s finger curl wave pattern.
Once cooled, brush through hair with the Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Classic Brush. This will drop the tight curls into soft, shiny waves.
Next pull the hair at the back of the head into a low, loose ponytail and secure with a clear elastic. Roll the pony under—tucking in all of the hair—and secure to the nape of the neck with bobby pins. This will create the faux bob.
With fingers, comb and roll the hair at the sides back and under, and secure into the bob at the back of the head. Then loosen up the waves with fingers for an undone, natural look.
Mist the entire style with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for strong hold, and then finish with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine.”
Would you wear this look in real life?
