At Michael Kors Collection's Fall 2018 show, Zendaya revealed a modern-mermaid Beauty moment from the front row.More
A seat front row at Michael Kors tends to elicit a lean toward prototypical beauty notes—think bouncy blowouts, ponytails, and perhaps a subtle wing of black liner. But for Zendaya, that prescription simply translates to yet another opportunity to make a turned-on-its-head, above-neck statement. Case in point: The fall 2018 show found the multi-hyphenate turning heads with a wet-look mane that edged from combed, parted, and slicked-to-scalp to a cascade of piece-y gelled waves.
Rather than paring down her makeup look to keep the focus on her modern mermaid moment, Zendaya opted to go bold, her power brow paired with a lip painted a glassy candy apple red that offered an updated take on classic crimson, all while keeping with her overarching saturated sensibility. A glow-y brushing of bronzer and a couple coats of mascara served as finishers, the sun-kissed glow helping to ensure the moment skewed contemporary rather than Old Hollywood. But the real lesson? Time-honored signatures are great, but for an updated take, try a wash of something extra—like high-drama dew.
