Prabal Gurung Spring 2014
If you thought Spring meant plenty of shine, then think again. Everything from the hair to the nails to the makeup was matte at Prabal Gurung's Spring 2014 show. The makeup was focused on the lips, which were painted in one of three matte shades: orange, lavender, and Pepto pink. "He wanted the girls to have this sense of perfection and elegance," lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury for MAC said.
Since the collection was quite couture, the hair was meant to mimic it. Paul Hanlon for Osis wanted the girls to have hair so perfect, it looked almost preserved. "It's almost as if they've been sitting in formaldehyde and are stepping out to show their perfection just for a minute," he said. Wet-looking hair was matted down, following the shape of the girls' heads and necks, allowing one of the ears to poke through to show off the gorgeous, embellished earring. Nails by Sally Hansen were a new take on the french manicure: matte with just a touch of shine at the tip.
