For Fashion week 2017 Pamella Roland is all about the glam.
After finding inspiration while vacationing in Monte Carlo, Roland dedicated her spring 2018 line to the seaside town. Her pieces were luxurious streamlined gowns that resembled the days of Grace Kelly, so the models’ hair, makeup and nails were minimal. We had chance to catch up with the hair, nail and makeup artists backstage. They gave us the details on how they achieved each look and their go to products.
The makeup was done by Artistry global makeup artist Rick DiCecca and his goal was to make the models look as if they had nothing on. “I want their skin to look like themselves,” said DiCecca. “Their eyes are softly defined with a little smudge at the bottom and a pop of color of their cheeks.” DiCecca used a rose shade lipstick on all of the models, and depending on their complexion he added a lip liner or a gloss which made the color appear darker or lighter. “It’s all about customizing, that’s one of the trends happening in cosmetics,” said DiCecca. “We already see it in skin care but now we will see it in makeup as well.”
Stefanie Francois for Fekkai was the hair stylist for the show and said Roland was very specific about the look she was going for. “She wanted deep side part with hair tucked behind the ear,” said Francois. “She wanted very shiny and healthy looking hair.” Francois said one of her favorite products to use when trying to create sleek hair is conditioner. “I love One to Believe In, it’s a leave in conditioner and it’s great for curly and straight hair because it’s super hydrating.”
Pattie Yankee customized a soft pink to polish the models hands and feet. As far as her favorite product, she said she uses her own. “My Protect Topcoat is really good because it fixes flaws,” said Yankee. “It will actually smooth out the error so it is perfect for backstage.”
