Remember the greatest disco moments of the '70s? They're back on the Jenny Packham runway for Spring 2014. The designer was inspired by the film Picnic at Hanging Rock, which is set in the Edwardian era but was filmed in the 1970s. Both influences can be seen in the movie, clothing collection, and beauty look.
Lead makeup artist Talia Shobrook for Laura Mercier used the Radiance Foundation Primer ($45), followed by tinted moisturizer, to illuminate the face. She then applied Cheek Contour in Sunrise to give models the innocent glow of the 1900s. To finish, a silver glitter scattered about the eyes served to harken back to the disco ball days of the '70s.
The nails also had a touch of sparkle. Gina Edwards layered on Essie Eternal Optimist ($18.95) topped with Allure ($18.95). Pink and silver glitters were then mixed in. "We wanted to create a cascading effect on the nail, kind of like it's there, and then it trickles down, and its not there," she said. "The key to glitter is you never want to take a full brush because it's just going to be a blob. You want to wipe the excess off so it's just at the end. Then, dab it on."
The hair was a definite nod to the disco era with big, backcombed curls. Lead hairstylist Jeanie Syfu curled each model's hair using Tresemmé Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray. The smallest irons were used near the nape, medium-sized barrels at the crown, and larger-sized barrels near the part. The hair was pinned up while cooling; just before the runway it was teased with a wide-tooth comb for volume.
