Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2013 collection was inspired by the Salem Witch Trials, a theme which carried over to the show’s breath-taking backstage beauty looks.
Moroccanoil’s Antonio Corral Calero took the theme even further, developing a sleek yet volumized look influenced by “early American settlers”.
To get the look:
“First, I prepared the hair with Moroccanoil Treatment to improve condition and added Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to improve manageability during the styling process.
“I then gave a light spray of new Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection to protect strands from the intensity of the hairdryer and flat iron and to provide a healthy-looking hold.
“Next, I used Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse and applied from the ends up, starting at the back, to the top of head, and throughout the sides.
“The hair was then blow dried using a Moroccanoil XLPRO Paddle Brush, with bristles swept up into the hair at the crown to raise them for added volume.
“I applied new Moroccanoil Styling Gel (available late spring) to my comb and applied to the roots in horizontal sections starting mid-head, sides, and crown to allow me to create shaped height. I used a Moroccanoil Paddle Brush to lift strands, directed the flow of the blow dryer to the root upwards, and then brushed hair back down for smooth volume.
“Starting mid-head in the back then to the sides, I flat-ironed the hair straight, sleek and close to the head to contrast the height on top.
“To finish, I gently backcombed hair at the crown to create a structured, volumized, squared shape. To unify the look and create a rich, natural, consistent shine throughout the hair, I held the style in place with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong.” – Via the Moroccanoil trend statement
To get the look: Start with a base coat of ESSIE First Base. Paint nails (excluding the pinkie) with two coats of Licorice. To complete the look, apply two coats of Good As Gold to the pinkie, finishing with Good To Go top coat.
MAC lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury created a “chic, pared down” Gothic look to compliment the collection:
To get the look:
Skin was perfected with Mineralized Moisture SPF15, and Pro Long Wear concealer. Multiple shades of cream eyeshadow were used on eyes: Black Paint stick, Rustic Red and Purple. Followed by Extended Play Lash mascara. Brows were filled in with Lingering brow pencil. The look was completed with a blend of Film Noir and Sin lipsticks to create a gothic inspired lip.
