Backstage at a Jeremy Scott show is usually one of the most colorful, fun, and lively environments one can possibly encounter during New York Fashion Week.
I always enjoy shows with more theatrical themes, that carry over not just in the collection, but to the beauty looks, and production as well. So this show was my own idea of thematic heaven! For Spring/Summer 2016, Jeremy Scott was inspired by John Waters, specifically the movie crybaby. If you haven’t ever seen it–please watch it asap and prepare to be inspired by the amazing beauty and fashion, and maybe fall in love with Johnny Depp a little bit.
To achieve that “Crybaby” look, big, bold hair is essential. WELLA’s Eugene Souleiman delivered, in the form of giant wigs, teased and backcombed to achieve the highest volume possible, then curled.
MAC’s very own Kabuki, creator of consistently amazing looks every seasons for shows like The Blonds, and frequent Jeremy Scott collaborator, created a unique spin on a retro cat eye for Spring.
Skin was left mostly bare, with the focus on the eyes. MAC’s Blacktrack Fluidline, along with Superslick, and On the Hunt liners were used to create the cat eye, and faux lash inspired look. Lips were a custom blended color created with white, orange, and nude MAC Lip Mix.
For nails, another frequent Jeremy Scott collaborator, Simcha Whitehill– AKA Miss Pop Nails — for OPI created a funky, Barbie-esque look featuring multiple pops of bright color, with a teeny tiny white exclamation point detail on one accent nail. Full disclosure: not only is Simcha one of my favorite nail artists, but she’s also my friend. 🙂
To get the look, Miss Pop used 5 OPI colors: “No Room for the Blues, I Just Can’t Cope-acabana, That’s Hot! Pink, In My Back Pocket, and Kiss Me…I’m Brazilian”.
