As I checking out the backstage scene for Band of Outsiders all I kept hearing was "Are you a boy or a girl?" Huh?? Dick Page, Artistic Director for Shisheido, quickly clarified how there was a 'girl' girl and 'boy' girl look for their shows. The girl is feminine and lady like and the boy is androgynous and tougher. Inspired by the movie Picnic at Hanging Rock, Page wanted to showcase the natural looking beauty from the film.
The 'girl' girls makeup were dreamy with flushed cheeks using Shisheido's Accentuating Color Stick in S3 and nothing on the eyes. The 'boy' girls had the rosy cheeks but made the look edgier with black eyeliner (nothing like a good eyeliner). Page used a lip brush to apply the cream eyeliner inside the eye since it's not too pointy and can pick up a lot of color.
Didier Maliage, Lead Stylist for Aveda, wanted to recreate the romantic looks from the movie where the 'girl' would have undone, loose waves just on the ends. No rollers necessary, all that was needed was the Aveda Brilliant Retexturing Gel applied throughout the hair, then rolled into two buns on the sides of the head (think Princess Leia) and let the gel dry. It's as simple as that. For the 'boy', with a slight side part and some loose strands, the hair was pulled back and held together in a low messy bun. To create that texture once the hair was up Maliage lightly backcombed to get that natural, messy look. Topped off with a fedora and the look was complete.
