Gucci Spring 2012 – Beauty Report

by Mynxii White

Architectural glamor inspired Great Gatsby style flashbacks on the Gucci runway this season with art deco grandeur dripping in luxury. Internationally acclaimed makeup artist, Pat McGrath, creates a “tougher, stronger look” for Frida Giannini’s 1920’s influenced presentation featuring striking blacked out eyes and a flawless face.

Bleached brows kept attention strictly on the fiercely lined eyes using Max Factor Kohl Pencil in Black to hold additional pigments like its Smoky Eye Effect Eyeshadow in Onyx Smoke, which was topped with a black shimmer shadow and multiple swipes of its Xperience Volume Mascara. Hairstylist Luigi Murenu’s two-tone hair added to the optical elegance of the contemporary look. Slicking hair back into two ponytails, Murenu tucked them underneath themselves and secured them with electrical tape at the base for an edgy alternative to elastic.
