AS SEEN AT GIAMBATTISTA VALLI
BEST TIP: When you are poised to sweep in with a vivacious red gown à la Valli, you want to look stunning, not theatrical. Val Garland painted the models’ faces to resemble porcelain figurines with MAC Mineralize Foundation, but not before she first prepped the skin with an oil-based serum. Then a subtle halo was dashed across the cheekbone, bridge of the nose, and top of the Cupid’s bow. And making like those stunning sculptures, Orlando Pita glazed the half-up pencil-straight hair with Osis Session Finish Extreme Hold Hairspray. Simple and modern, think of it as a juxtaposition to the intricate headbands with which he crowned the models.
