A Softer Side of Sixties Mod at Richard Chai Spring 2013
By Valis Vicenty September 06,2012
Richard Chai Love collection played with all forms of light in the form of flowing fabrics, shining accents, and a pastel color palette. To compliment the angular cuts and the soft shades that hit the runways, MAC’s James Kaliardos looked to mods for inspiration. “It’s a soft ‘60s graphic eye,” he said. “Instead of using black, it’s a soft taupe.”
For a minimalist makeover, he used MAC’s Pro-Concealer Palette to cover up any spots with the brand’s Face & Body Foundation to even out the skin and skipped the frills contour and blush. For the eyes, he used a new Fluidline in Dirty Blonde to line the top lash and drew it up into the crease, creating a rounded rectangle. Though the lashes were curled, there was no mascara to be found. He also kept the lip look low maintenance by using a little bit off foundation and Lip Conditioner for a plush, barely-there pout.
The tresses were pulled taught into a sleek ponytail with a hard diagonal part to align with the collection, but to nail the inspiration of the season, Julep’s Jane Park plucked a metallic polish called Sienna. To replicate the softened shine of the pieces, she opted for a suede finish, using a matte top coat to help create modern look that friendly for all.
