Cynthier Lichen Autumn/Winter 2011

April 17, 2011 Written by prettycreations - No Comments

When jewellery designer Cynthia asked us to create the hair and makeup behind her new Lichen collection – we were up for the challenge.

Here’s the brief we were given:
In the midst of the dark rainforest, a mysterious nymph lurks within the shadows, radiating the natural beauty which surrounds her. This earthy range is inspired by lichens, ferns and mosses that dwell in the forest floor, striving off other life forms. The range features natural tones of green & brown, organic leaf shapes, wood and semi-precious stones wrapped in leather like vines.

Cynthia wanted the look to reflect the collection with dark smokey green eyes and big frizzy hair aka Marc Jacob’s frizzy Grace Coddington at his Spring/Summer 2011 runway show.

Christine created the dramatic makeup look with dark emerald eye shadow, black eyeliner & lashings of mascara. Skin was flawlessly matte, with defined contoured cheekbones. Lips were finished with natural tone gloss. Angela constructed the labour-intensive voluminous fuzzed-out mane using a 3 barrel waver to set the hair before teasing and hairspraying to finish.

Overall the look was avante garde, dark and mystique.

The Lichen Autumn/Winter 2011 range is now live online

Here’s a couple of our favourite pieces from the range.
