“Barragàn in general has this underlying layer of sexiness,” said makeup artist Marcelo Gutierrez backstage at the Barragàn’s Spring 2020 show, “so we created a beauty look that encapsulates that essence.” Elizabeth Arden’s eight-hour cream was applied across the lids with fingers for a “sweaty eye” to give the impression that models “just left the dance floor after a summer night out until 5 a.m.” Tawny eyeshadows gave the appearance of dark circles, while MAC concealers and Pat McGrath eyeliner finished off the look.
An homage to a little romance on the dance floor, Gutierrez and team created cheeky hickeys, using Kryolan’s bruise palette over the necks and décolletage of the Barragàn muses. The artist wanted to celebrate the visual cue of a wild night out. “Maybe you got a little carried away on the dance floor, and that’s okay,” he explained. “We wanted to embody an uninhibited club scene.”
Adding to the club-chic details, a custom Barragàn hair clip held back some models’ hair while accessorizing others’ outfits (clipped on a belt loop here, a bandeau there). Designer Victor Barragàn noted he was inspired by “the mom hair-clip look,” spun for super-late nights—“It’s not just reserved for daytime.” For those eager to get their hands on the right-size, gold-logo’d item, rejoice: Barragàn plans to sell them alongside the new collection.
