A Gorgeous Evening Hair and Makeup Look

We're swooning over the beautiful evening hair and makeup look at Elie Saab's fall 2017 show by makeup artist Tom Pecheux and hairstylist Orlando Pita.

We've all been there. You've got a wedding reception, a cocktail party, a benefit dinner, or some dress code-required occasion to go to. You've agonized over the dress and accessories for weeks and then the day of the event, you still haven't figured what to do with your hair and makeup. Well, today at Elie Saab's fall 2017 show, we spotted a gorgeous evening hair and makeup look that will work with nearly any ensemble you have stashed in your closet.

[post_ads]Inspired in part by ballerinas and the fairytales in 1001 Nights, the makeup was smoky and sparkly, the hair softly pulled back into an elegant chignon. And while at first glance, these both look like your average evening hair an makeup styles, (Smoky eyes? A low bun? Groundbreaking), there are actually many pretty little details that make this look extra special. Just take a closer look.

First off, there's the perfect amount of volume to the hair. It's not so tight that it looks slicked back, but it's not so poof-y that you look like you stepped out of a bad junior prom picture. To achieve that, hairstylist Orlando Pita sprayed his Orlando Pita Play Max Capacity Hybrid Hairspray on his hands and combed the hair back with his fingers. He also didn't tie the hair in a ponytail first. "When you tie the hair in a ponytail before putting it in the chignon, it pulls the sides back too tightly," he explained.
Then you have to see it from the back. Instead of twisting the ends of the hair into one donut-shaped bun, Pita pinned up the ends of the hair section by section, creating a cluster of soft loops. The result is a more interesting, dare we say edgy-looking chignon, but also one that's more voluminous.

Some models also wore delicate gold tiaras.

Tom Pecheux's smoky eye truly was fairytale like, but not in a cheesy, princess-y sort of way. Covered in sparkle, it looked almost magical, but still incredibly sexy. The black base was a mix of pencil, gel liner, and powder. "I put black pencil along the waterlines, then M.A.C. Fluidline gel liner in Blacktrack near the lashes, and add a lot of mascara," said Pecheux of his process. "Then I create the smoky shape with black pencil, and then put black powder shadow on top."
Pecheux mixed two different-colored glitters on the eyes: First, a layer of antique gold pigment mixed with M.A.C. Mixing Medium Eyeliner all over the lid and along the lower lashes. Then, a touch of M.A.C. 3D Silver Reflects—a holographic glitter—along the outer corners of the shadow and applied on top of the cheekbones "as you would apply a highlighter," said Pecheux.

So while a ballerina bun and lots of loose glitter sounds like a bad dance recital, when following Pecheux and Pita's steps, it becomes one of the most unique evening hair and makeup combinations we've seen in a while.
