NYFW A/W ‘11 Beauty Report: Marc by Marc Jacobs

16 February 2011

At Marc by Marc Jacobs, we're met by a downtown grungey girl who's playing uptown girl. Basically, she's rich for the day and loving it. With 39 girls and 15 guys walking the show, things in the make-up department were kept simple. 'It's good to leave the girls' skin in their natural habitat - that's why we booked them!' Dick Page told us.

So instead of a grand glam squad, the models enjoyed well massaged skin with Shiesedo's uber expensive Future Solutions making the skin 'clean and expensive beyond imagination' with a touch of base melted in and a hint of blush if needed. Yep, the girls' true beauty really shone through.

Stepping up the rich girl effect were the classic blow dries that were deliberately kept as natural as possible. Centre partings, great gloss and a little bit of bounce will help us all become a Marc by Marc girl for the day!
