Yigal Azrouel’s Fall 2011 collection was highly influenced by men’s wear. In contrast, the beauty look was highly feminine.

Hair was “easy going and light”, inspired by a “90’s Kate Moss”. A thick, but loose bun was complimented by black feathers worn like headbands.

The look was created by lead stylist Laurent Philippon for Bumble and Bumble.

To achieve the look, start by applying Bumble and Bumble Prep to damp, towel-dried hair. Texture Gel (out this month) is used to thicken the hair, and add create a soft look. Make a low pony tail at the bottom of the neck, then twist hair up to create a loose chignon. Use six hair pins to secure the bun in place.

The makeup team, keyed by Lucia Pica for MAC, created a look that brought light to the models’ faces, and pulled colors from Yigal’s collection.

Faces were prepped with Face + Body Foundation. Sand Brown, and Bark eye shadows were used on cheeks to create a contoured shadow. Fling, or Lingering eye shadows were used to accentuate brows, finished with Brow Set. Sparkle Gold Gloss, and Golden Lemon Pigment were applied to the eyes using the artist’s fingers.

A circle of Orange shadow was applied to the corner of the eye using a small brush. The eyes were finished with a light coat of mascara, at the roots of the lashes. To complete the look, lips were coated in a light layer of concealer, and topped off with Peachstock Lipstick.
