Shisedo @ Jen Kao
Jen Kao's designs are a clear reflection of her Japanese roots, affinity for detail, and formal education in studio arts. All of these components come together and breathe life into a collection that is fluid and visually refreshing. Llyod SImmonds, the lead makeup artist for MAC, was inspired by Kao's direction - for models to look like they were on vacation, just stepped out of the water, and changed to hit the town.
Shiseido hair maestro Tadashi Harada followed suit with a style he described as "simple, cool, and wet." Harada used products from Shiseido's Japanese line including a mixture of two gel sprays to smooth strands backward and a control spray.
