Who: We Are Kindred
When: 11:00am, May 14, Carriageworks
Hair: Marie Cain for Redken
"The inspiration for today’s look is for the girls to look quite natural. The show’s got this really beautiful energy about it. The hair is sort of that cool ‘it’ girl, but it’s got a sort of feminine dream-like touch to it.
I think We are Kindred’s a very feminine, beautiful brand, but it’s still got a very cool kind of vibe to it, like how you can wear an incredible dress but with sneakers. It’s really important that the hair just blends in to that look – not a standout – just part of it.
The key product we’re using is Redken’s new Triple Dry 15 – it’s incredibly mattifying, but also adds an incredible dimension and texture."
Makeup: Lara Srokowski for Lancôme
"The inspiration behind the makeup look is all about resorts – like a beautiful summer holiday. We really wanted to complement that in the models’ skin, so we’ve gone for a beautiful glass skin effect. We’ve used a lot of skincare to really hydrate the skin first, as I’m a big believer that beautiful makeup all starts with the beauty of the skin.
We’ve used our advanced Génefique Serum to help plump the skin and amplify the glow. We’ve then used a few drops of the Absolue Oil for a glossy effect, and the Prep and Hydrate Primer to boost hydration levels. After prepping the skin, we used our Ultrawear Foundation. We’ve used a full coverage foundation, but we’ve manipulated the texture with the oil drops to make it more lightweight and glowy.
On top of the makeup, we used Glow Drops and then oil again. We have also used the Cushion Blush in shade 032 for a splash of coral. Brows are kept really raw, brushed up and gelled into place. We’ve gone for a beautiful glossy eye – a bit of lipgloss on the eye with a coat of mascara, and a glossy, balmy lip."
