City Pulse

The birds were chirping Saturday morning, even though most of the guests arrived bundled up in their designer coats, hats, and scarves, from the harsh cold weather outdoors, at renowned designer Chris Han’s show. She brought the image of a brisk, refreshing fall day to the stage with her use of knitted sweaters and wool coats of tranquil gray, beige, and plum hues, her subtle makeup and hair, and the symphonic background sound of ornithology.


Backstage makeup extraordinaires from M.A.C., transformed the models into fresh- faced beauties. The makeup was subtle but radiant with soft naturally pick lips, a emphasis on a wind blushed cheek, and a touch of mascara. The look possessed a natural I just rolled out of bed but I still look beautiful“, quality to it. “We were focusing on a fresh faced appearance for this season”, says a M.A.C makeup artist. The look seemed very attainable for the ever day fashionista unlike other past seasons. Click Salon reiterated the sense of subtle beauty for the models hair. Simplicity was the key for the show, with long straight, but not too straight wind swept hair. The style is very accessible, with a little hair balm, anyone can look like one of Chris Han’s models.


The whole look came together beautifully on the runway with the hair and makeup correlating with the subtle tones of the garments. Chris Han dazzled the audience with her mixture of wool coats and trench jackets at the beginning and her elegant chiffon beaded and metallic dresses towards the end of the show.
