“The look for today is desert girl. She’s coming from the desert or she’s going to the desert. It’s a story about shading and sculpting. I work the eyes with these three shadows (MAC PRO Emphasize Shaping powder, Sculpt Sculpting Powder, Accentuate Shaping Powder) to enhance and sculpt the eye. It’s really amazing when you use it on the upper eyelid and just blend it everywhere. I use two highlighters that I mix to find the middle color for the girl. It’s sheer and fantastic. We’re going to highlight every bone in the face –  the cheekbones, upper eyebrows, nose. I want the girl to be strong but not with strong makeup. It’s really blended like face paint.” – Carole Colombani

“The look is very Grace Jones. It’s very structured, so it has a Grace Jones vibe. In the back, it’s like a chignon, not round but like a shell chignon. To create the chignon, I’m using a lot of the Kerastase Sublimateur Jour, which is actually a treatment. We’re putting a lot of the product in the hair so it looks slightly wet, spraying it down with a water bottle, and then just using that product, no elastics and pins, to make the chignon. No hairspray, so it’s a nice treatment for the models.

For the front, I’m pushing the front section of the hair back and clipping it. To keep its shape, I’m using a lot of double force hairspray and to make it extra wet, a heavy amount of the Elixir Ultime. Obviously this is for a more extreme look, but you could just use a tiny bit of the oil for a nice shine. This one is new, launching this month, called Moringa Immortel, and it’s specifically for damaged hair.” – Odile Gilbert

“We’re using two coats of Fed Up by Essie. The collection is a lot of colors, patterns and textures, so the makeup is really simple, the hair is really simple, sleek, not intricate. The makeup and the nail is really neutral, so two coats of Fed Up, sheer. It’s just going to show the color of the models’ skin tone underneath; same on the hands and the feet.” –  William Wesley
