Futuristic Fifties Nuns at Thom Browne

WWD went behind the scenes at the fall show.

Always over the top, the beauty look at Thom Browne — chalky white faces and matching dramatic, powdery wigs — did not disappoint this season.

“Thom wanted to see nuns this season, so we’re doing a Thom Browne nun, which is a wicked nun,” said Sil Bruinsma, lead makeup artist for MAC. “It’s very pale skin, ivory, [we are] using lots of powder.”

Faces featured Face and Body Foundation in White, applied with a sponge, as well as MAC Pro Studio Fix Pastels in Shivering White and Powder Blush in Fun Ending swept lightly over the cheeks.

Bruinsma also did a “beautiful smoke around the eye…and a thin mean eyebrow in taupe,” he said. “It’s totally eerie.”

Models’ real eyebrows were muted and a thin “stern” eyebrow drawn over them with Fling and Lingering eyebrow pencils. Eye Shadow in Copperplate was used on the lids for a bit of contour, and Mineralize Multi-Effect Lash, a new mascara for fall, was applied to the root of the upper lashes for depth. Lips were left pale, with a touch of Lip Conditioner for hydration.

Hair, done by Jimmy Paul for Bumble and bumble, consisted of oversize white wigs, fluffed out to prevent light from coming through. Paul prepped the synthetic wigs, which were “vintage and Space Age,” by teasing them and adding Prêt-à-Powder for a dry texture and plenty of volume. The look was completed with veiled headpieces.

For the men in the show, hair was slicked down, for a cool “priest” effect.
