Versace Spring 2010 – ridiculously DIY

Perhaps for the first time ever, Donatella Versace toned down the make up and hair for Versace’s Spring 2010 runway show in Milan, creating a more user-friendly glamazon look in the process. "This makeup is a big change for Versace," the legendary Pat McGrath told the press. "Donatella wanted to do a natural look, but with a flash of something. So we decided on violet around the eyes, but it's lightly done." McGrath reportedly brushed shimmery violet shadow on the lids, up to the browbones, and under the eyes, extending the color out slightly beyond both the inner and outer corners. Then she traced a thin line of bright purple liquid liner along the upper lash line, finally adding loads of black mascara for that doll-like Versace look, and finishing with a fresh rosy powder blush and soft baby-pink lip gloss. The hair created by Guido was also more easygoing than usual, with the stylist saying, "it's a bit of a Kate Moss rocker chick, but it still has that Versace feeling to it. She's always the Donatella [Versace] girl in some way." For the beachy look, he pulled thickening lotion through damp hair and blow-dried while tossing it with his fingers (brushes were banned entirely from backstage), then he created seeminly random waves from the ears down with a large-barrel curling iron. A little height was added at the crown for a little polish and bingo! Fresh, sexy and ridiculously easy. This is exactly the kind of look I'd use my beloved Sebastian Whipped Creme to create, with a little spray for good measure.
