Get Drenched

Put your mat­ti­fiers away – glossy, wet look skin and hair rained down on the run­ways

ELLE (Malaysia) - - RADAR -

Mois­ture is the essence of wet­ness, and wet­ness is the essence of beauty,” said one Derek Zoolan­der, a slice of wis­dom at its peak rel­e­vance in the age of K-Beauty. At the S/S ’17 run­way shows, hair and makeup artists took it about five steps fur­ther, slather­ing, soak­ing, and oth­er­wise coax­ing mois­ture into both locks and skin. From wet braids at Si­mone Rocha to dewy skin at Marni, this is a look that cel­e­brates get­ting caught in the rain, or, in the case of the vase­line-cov­ered, PornHub­part­nered Hood By Air show, a dif­fer­ent sort of care­free, fun ac­tiv­ity. Back­stage artists used face glosses and pro-kit shine medi­ums for re­flec­tive com­plex­ions, but hair took mul­ti­ple routes to shine city. A gel-oil was used at Hood By Air, gen­er­ous amounts of hair cream and blow-dry gel at Al­tuz­zara and straight-up gel at Givenchy, where Guido Palau’s army cre­ated sculp­tured, shiny hel­met heads. This was achieved by comb­ing gel from the crown to tips of mod­els’ damp hair and pulling it back into a youth­ful, yet clas­sic chignon. More gel was added to form the face-fram­ing waves, then even more to seal in the style. The fi­nal touch: spritzes of Red­ken Di­a­mond Oil Mist for vinyl per­fec­tion. Glossy hair and skin met on the Ur­sula An­dresstypes at Bal­main, where Sam McKnight’s deep side parted beach babe hair gleamed along­side Tom Pecheux’s pol­ished cheek­bones, lips and brows.
