Glitter glittering is cool right now. The New York Fashion Week Presentation for Nicola Formichetti’s Nicopanda featured punk, goth, romance and glitter on faces for her and him. Maki Ryoke, Mac Makeup Artist, blew the glitter on in strategic places, protecting the rest of the face and the hair by Peter Gray, which included three different hair looks presented in three different rooms. Here, the hair is crimped in here and there on her and glam, softly waved, behind one ear on him, worn with an athletic hoodie look tied with a satin bow.
