Any nightowl knows the look well: the unkempt version of what started as a polished evening look, rendered slightly mussed up after being out til sunrise. It’s this glam undone feel that inspired the beauty for Nada’s S/S ’11 runway show. To achieve the look (without a full night’s worth of partying first), hair and makeup pro Vittorio Masecchia styled tresses into an ultra-low pony, with wisps and loose bumps aplenty. Eyes were given a bright pop of colour and shine thanks to Masecchia’s concoction of shimmery purple powder (dubbed a “pungent violet” by the pro) and petroleum jelly. For an out-all-night lip, a pinky beige shade was dabbed on, before matting it out with concealer and powder in the centre. To try the look yourself, Masecchia recommends keeping the colours but ditching the textures (read: skip the glossy eye and uber-matte lip), or just party till the crack of dawn.
