MakeupNYFW SS 2012: Ruffian & Prabal Gurung’s Braids & Orchid Lips
  • Lead artist James Kaliardos for MAC noted that the makeup was inspired by the graphic quality from jockey outfits. He translated that inspiration into a graphic line on the eye with thick lashes and a touch of peach blush on the cheeks.

  • For the hair, led by Neil Moodie for Bumble and Bumble, they wanted it to resemble a horses' tail.

  • Hair was pulled back into a thick braid after prepping it with Thickening Hair Spray.

  • The liner was drawn on with MAC Penultimate, which gave the ability for a very thin, angled line.

  • The nails were also quite a site, inspired by the jockey graphics. The Ruffian designers chose seven patterns to have printed on nails and decided to have two different patterns on the hands.

  • Before braiding, the stylists backcombed the hair and flatironed it to seal in the backcombing.

  • At Prabal Gurung, the hair (led by Didier Malige for Fekkai) was slicked back to create a sporty, 90's inspired toughness.

  • Malige applied COIFF styling gel to the hair and combed back, leaving that center part in place. He let the rest of the hair fall free to still have a mix of femininity.

  • Charlotte Tilbury led the MAC team for makeup and noted that they wanted to create an "alluring, sensual, intoxicating" girl.

  • She used Strobe Cream mixed with a moisturizer on top of the cheekbones to catch light, and then a silvery-gray shadow on the lids.
