Italian boarding school at Cecilie Bahnsen
CPH Fashion week is well on its way, and we visited backstage at the Cecilie Bahnsen show before it started. The show was held in the fine surroundings of the Opera, and we talked to make-up artist Sine Ginsborg about the make-up look.
“We are inspired by Italian boarding school students with the opposites between the boyish and the very feminine look being in focus to give contrasts to the delicate and feminine rosy colours of the make-up. The skin is kept very natural, mattified but moist. We’ve used True Match Minerals (Loose mineral foundation) on the T-zone to give that matt look, and we’ve put a bit on the lips as well to keep them dry and neutral-looking. We’ve defined the brows by colouring the hairs with Brow Artist X-pert but it’s important that only the hairs and not the skin beneath the hairs are coloured. On cheeks and eyes, we’ve used Sexy Balm Sheer 106 Clueless which has a delicate rosy colour for the lips. We used the mascara Volume Lashes So Couture, one of our forever favourites. The nails are kept natural by using a transparent but slightly light pink polish and a matt topcoat as finish”, Sine Ginsborg tells us about the look. All the products are from L’Oréal Paris.
The hair and make-up of the models were identical, and this is different from one of the trends during the last fashion week. Back then, the individual looks were emphasized, and the personality of each model was accentuated. “We’ve focused on the models of this season looking alike as opposed to last season which focused on the models having individual looks”, Sine Ginsborg adds.
To go with the delicate and feminine make-up, the models had tightly combed, middle-parted hair, and shiny ponytails.
