Erin Fetherston Fall/Winter 2010 Collection
by Jessica M
The inspiration: Fetherston’s “muse” for her fall/winter line was
Nico, the timelessly chic vocalist for The Velvet Underground. The
collection of 1970s-influenced outfits included flowing chiffon
dresses worn with high boots, tailored jackets, velvet shorts, and
slim, flared pants in a palette of ivory, metallic bronze, lilac, and
occasional accents of bright orange.
How to get the look: The models were given identical, Nico-inspired
styles with long, straight hair and bangs (similar to the designer’s
own cut), and their makeup was an impression of flushed cheeks,
stained lips, and glowing skin. The look was edgy but girlish,
suiting the bohemian style of the clothing.
Face: Lucia Pica and her team of MAC makeup artists began by
massaging MAC Care Blends Essential Oils into the models’ faces. They
lightly applied Select Cover-Up concealer and Mineralize Satinfinish
pressed powder where needed. They used Fearless lipstick (a new shade
for Fall 2010) on the models’ cheeks, letting the lipstick’s oils give
the skin a slight tint and glow. Then they rubbed a bit of thick
moisturizer onto the cheekbones for added luminosity; products spotted
on the makeup tables included Weleda Skin Food, Embryolisse Lait-Crème
Concentré, and Lucas Papaw Ointment.
Lips: Fearless was also used on the lips, dabbed onto the mouth with
the point of the lipstick and blended with a fingertip. Its rich
color flattered a range of skin-tones.
Eyes: Pica instructed her team to apply MAC Cocochino lipstick
(another Fall shade) to the models’ eyelids, working it across the
lids with a small blending brush for a wash of color and a shiny
texture. A tiny amount of lip balm (such as Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1) was
pressed into the inner corner of the eye for a highlighting effect.
Mascara was skipped, in order not to overdo the look.
Hair: Odile Gilbert and a team of stylists used MoroccanOil products
to give the models’ hair a smooth, full look. They blow-dried the
hair straight, using Hydrating Styling Cream, attached bang extensions
(also blow-dried for fullness), and fixed the style in place with a
misting of Luminous Hair Spray (to be released in March/April 2010).
Small amounts of Moroccanoil Treatment (on the ends) and Glimmer Shine
Spray added a healthy gleam.
