We saw it on Simone Rocha Fall 2014 show. Then it was Emilio Pucci’s fashion week showcase.

The commonality: Golden foreheads are going to be big this Fall!

Makeup artist Yadim pulled inspiration the brocade and beaded pieces in the collection and created a “modern-day Veruschka”.  Using gold powder, Yadim wet the pigment before gilding the forehead of ten select girls. “That’s where that desert warrior woman comes in,” he said.

Makeup was done by Sam Bryant from MAC, who said that “the makeup reference at Simone Rocha was punky, Victorian, a little bit religious and a little bit royal..” Unlike Yadim who used gold powder, Bryant used gold paper and stuck the thin foil on the forehead using water-based glue. This creates a more distressed metallic feel.

Verdict?

Perhaps a good makeup idea for Halloween this year. What about using gold powder (or cream eyeshadow) as highlighter on the nose bridge and cheekbones to add some radiance and iridescence?  That would make a hopefully flattering impact as the Golden Girl!
