VPL by Victoria Bartlett led the way in introducing the world to underwear as outerwear. So it was fitting that for Spring, nudity and nakedness and bare skin played a large roll in the backstage beauty looks for the show.
Nails, by Butter London for Beauty.com were simple and natural. Founding creative director Nonie Creme chose a nude shade the emphasised the “sexual but not crass” nature of the collection.
To achieve the look, Creme used two coats of Butter London Flawless Base Coat, topped with Butter London Tea with the Queen. Nails were finished with Butter London Hardware P.D. Quick Topcoat. (It was emphasized how important using a base coat is, especially when using nude or light colors on nails. Advice that, from now on, I will always be taking!)
Clé de Peau Beauté color creator, Lucia Pieroni was inspired by the idea of “living mannequins” for VPL’s spring show. Skin was prepped with Refining Fluid Foundation SPF24. Color was applied to eyelids, using the two brown colors from Eyeshadow Quad in #208. No liner or mascara was used. Brows were filled using Eyebrow and Eyeliner Compact in 1 and 2.
#12 Gold Luminizing Enhancer in 12/Gold was dusted onto cheeks to give models a subtle glow. The look was finished with Enriched Lip Luminizer #201/Sweet Lychee on lips.
Bob Recine for Phyto created a wet “just out of the shower” style for the show. To get the look: Hair was saturated with Phyto Professional Intense Volume Mousse, then slicked back over the crown of the head, while the ends remained loose. Phytolaque Soie Light Hold Hair Spray was sprayed onto a toothbrush to tame flyaways. Hair was set with Phyto Professional Workable Holding Spray.
