How to do the cool-girl makeup and faded pastel hair from Peter Som Spring 2013
More was more on Peter Som’s Spring 2013 runway when it came to beauty. Bright orange eyelids were mixed with washed out pastel hair extensions, resulting in the ultimate cool-girl vibe for spring.
The Peter Som beauty team—led by Wella Professionals global creative director Eugene Souleiman and makeup artist Tom Pecheux—matched the collection’s watercolour-print boardshorts and billowy floral dresses with bright pops of colour. However, the models’ natural skin tone played a key role in the look. “There is no blush, no highlighter—no need,” said Pecheux, noting that all the models were returning from summer vacation with flawless, toned skin. As our spring trends guide reported, skincare products play a major role when it comes to the “natural” skin look. Pecheux used hydrating gel, foundation and a translucent powder to ensure complexions looked fresh.
Drawing inspiration from Courtney Love in the 1990s and heiress Brooke Astor, the beauty look was a little bit grungy and had an overall California beach town vibe. Continuing the playful look, nails were done with a multi-colour manicure. Using the custom Peter Som Zoya nail polish collection, the French manicure was re-imagined with a mint-green base and a creamsicle-orange tips—like an ice cream sundae for your hands.
