Fitting Beauty at Jason Wu Fall RTW

Hair and makeup at Jason Wu’s fall show fit the ethereal but powerful mood of his fall 2009 collection.

Hair and makeup at Jason Wu’s fall show fit the ethereal but powerful mood of his fall 2009 collection. “There is a fairy-tale quality to the clothing,” said lead hair stylist Kevin Ryan for Rsessiontools. “It’s not like a Disney fairy tale, its more like Grimm’s; it has more depth, it’s not so cutesy.”

 

After blow drying and straightening hair, Ryan swept it back in a low ponytail and left “it a little real” by not slicking back all the flyaways. “These girls have a little life, they’ve been running from pumpkins and now their hair has texture.” Ryan used Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray for hair that “needed a little oomph.”

 

Gucci Westman, who did the makeup on behalf of Revlon, kept the models looking airy but strong. “I’m slightly lightening their skin with a lighter foundation and darkening the brows,” said Westman, who created matte cheeks and lips and strengthened brows with ColorStay Brow Enhancer. “There is a strength in the clothes, so we wanted the girls not to look so soft, but still ethereal.” Westman also used a violet lipstick she created especially for fashion week on cheeks for a delicate glow.
