“The look is about capturing the moment when a lovely, young woman is still sweet but on the verge of becoming a witch… It’s romantic, with an edge.” — Tom Pecheux

Makeup How-to

  • Eyes: Legendary Black Pro Longwear Eyeshadow (Fall 2011) blended through the contour with an emphasis through the inner crease. One of a Kind Lipstick (Summer 2011) shaded over eyelids for a bit of a highlight.
  • Lips: One of a Kind Lipstick (Summer 2011) applied with a light touch over the entire lip.
  • Face: Matchmaster Foundation (Fall 2011) blended over hydrated and perfected skin.

Hair How-to

Frederic Fekkai Lead Stylist Didier Malige was inspired by the aesthetic of the collection, which is vibrant and romantic. Drawing from the Victorian era with a slightly street-wise, savage take – Havisham meets John’s Singer Sargent’s ‘A Parisian Beggar Girl’– the hair mirrors the juxtaposition between precious and casual couture. The look is daring – for the girl that is a risk taker, savvy and is full of texture, yet very romantic.

Didier applied Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray heavily throughout dry hair. He then blow dried the front of the hair, forming finger-waves to add a defined shape and frame the face. By securing the front pieces with pins, he was able to hand-dry the rest of the hair to enhance the natural texture. Once dried, he added a little bit of a more exaggerated wave throughout the hair by using a 1 1/4 inch curling iron on random pieces. Lastly, he backcombed the hair to achieve the exact feel of a slightly tousled, intended messy ‘do. The look was secured with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray to keep it light and airy.
