Alexander McQueen Fall 2008

In Fashion Week on October 6, 2008 at 11:32 pm


Makeup for these alien movie “Species” inspired looks were created by Peter Philips for MAC Cosmetics.

Philips prepped faces with skin-sculpting foundation and Prep + Prime loose powder. A hint of Powder Blush in Breath of Plum warmed up cheeks while Lipmix in Burgundy was used on pouts.

“It’s like they have veins or tree roots growing on their faces,” said hair stylist Paul Hanlon, who created the look by snaking tendrils of hair over models’ faces and holding them in place with hair nets. “The nets are used like a mask.”

At the back of the head, hair was pulled into rope-like shapes, reminiscent of wooden heels on some shoes worn on the runway.
