Direct from the Runway: Cynthia Rowley Spring 2010

Hello, drama queen! Cynthia Rowley tipped her hat to the 50's era with an over-the-top retro hairstyle and dramatic purple eyeshadow. Get all the details after the jump.

Bok-Hee Meixner for Redken said her inspiration for the look was a combination of "50's retro, punk and futuristic high drama." She pulled the hair into a messy ponytail "as if the model did it herself," and contrasted the causal back with a super-structured front. Using a sponge cushion, she rolled the front section of the hair into a C-shaped side bang, evoking Betty Boop. To create the look, she used Redken Workforce 09 Flexible Volumizing Spray and Redken Fabricate 03 Heat-Active Texturizer.

Makki for M.A.C was inspired by "50's winged eye makeup" but wanted a "fierce look" -- so he cut the ends straight instead of thinning them out. He wanted a girl that looked like "she ran away from home ... a tough, little girl." For this reason, he kept the color a true purple instead of anything with a pink tone, achieving this by mixing his own color with M.A.C Creme de Violet as the base. He piled on the black liner, groomed brows with brown shadow and kept lips bare.
