Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall ‘10 NYC: Marc by Marc Jacobs

The beauty look at Marc by Marc Jacobs was fresh out of bed and slightly undone. For the hair, key stylist for Redken Guido used Fabricate 03, then dried the hair with his hands, letting the natural texture come through. "It's very simple, a little grungy and a little East Village," Guido told me. "It's for the young, hip woman who doesn't want it to look like she did her hair." In fact, one model actually didn't have her hair done at all--after coming in from the wind and snow, Guido took one look at her and exclaimed, "Perfect!"

Makeup artist Dick Page, artistic director for Shiseido, described his look as "makeup that's not getting in the way." Other than some skin touchups and filling in of brows that had been bleached, Page simply highlighted the cheeks so that the models looked "animated and bright." He put gloss on the lips for some added shine.

The nails were equally as simple. Elisa Ferri, lead artist for CND, said that the nail story was "just a hint of pink and healthy shine." She accomplished the low maintenance finish with Rose Water, a sheer, cool pink hue that made the nails look "undone done."
