Tis Almost Fairy Time
Isaac Mizrahi Winter ‘10
By Angie W
The Inspiration: An Upper East side lady goes on a camping trip
(apparently without a comb)!
Val Garland, lead artist, told us that Isaac wanted the models to look
like fairies in a winter wonderland. She gave the models’ faces the look
of a frosty, blank canvas with no blush, no contouring, just a matte
face with a tiny bit of shine at the cheeks.
How to Get the Look:
The Eyes and Face: Very little product was applied and practically no
color. Vanilla eye shadow was applied and no mascara was used. Select
Cover Up concealer and Care Blend Oil were applied over the eyes,
lashes, and brows to “pale them out” and give the feeling of being lost
in a snow storm. MAC Pearl CCB was applied to cheeks for a bare hint of
Lips: A frozen rose shade was created by first using Naked lip liner
and then topping it with Tenderling blush.
The Nails: Kim D’Amato, Founder of Priti polish created the nail look.
Priti is a non-toxic polish line and all shades are named for flowers
and trees. For Isaac's look, Kim told us she related the nail color to
Isaac's makeup concept of a woman who had been out in cold, freezing
weather. Kim first applied 2 coats of Paper Bark Maple and then added a
matte top coat to give a frozen look to the nails.
The Hair: Hair was mussed, wild, and feral! The stylist warned us not
to take this look too far at home!
