Gucci's Nod to the Sixties

MILAN — At Gucci, makeup artist Pat McGrath and hairstylist Luigi Murenu alluded to Sixties beauty icons such as Britt Ekland and Marianne Faithfull as starting points for throwback glamour.

For McGrath, a simple contour, natural skin and pencil-filled eyebrows lent a boyish, modern romanticism to models’ faces. Linear traces of lean black eyeliner outlined the top and bottom lash lines, framed by glued-on faux top and bottom lashes. Eyelids were glazed with a neutral-toned, glossy hue, extended through the crease. Nude lips were moisturized with lip balm. On hair, tactile texture was key for the deeply parted style created by Murenu.

“It’s loose, but not romantic – a hybrid between modern and Sixties,” he said. “Hair is tussled in a natural, organic way — refined dishevelment.”

To start, Kérastase Mousse Bouffante was distributed through dry hair followed by a deep, strong finger-raked side part and a small lift was teased at the back. A side-swept, volume-rich lank of hair draped faces, and to finish, strands from temples were gently twisted and pinned back with two black bobby pins. A spritz of L'Oréal Paris Elnett hairspray was to give a controlled movement and reign in flyaways.
