Elegant Madonnaesque statuesMake-up artist and stylist Steffen Zoll travelled from New York for the Nobi Talai show. He is one of the industry’s stars with more than 20 years of experience in Paris and the Big Apple. Working together with him, key junior stylists are also given the opportunity to attend Paris Fashion Week and style the Nobi Talai models. Elodie Lopes, the current winner of the International Beauty Stylist Award, which is regularly presented by La Biosthétique Paris’s high-calibre international jury, is also part of the team this time. The look she is crafting today for Nobi Talai was created by Steffen Zoll for “NT.05 Spring/Summer”. He describes it as “unusual”. His concept is based on a Madonnaesque look that is a little retro yet very modern.
„The Make-up is only as good as the surface is“
“I have created a fairly cool Raw Beauty Look. Before I applied the actual base, I prepared the skin with La Capsule Hydratante and Elixir Vitalité. For this look the foundation is mixed with the Glamour Kit cream. Then highlights are applied to the cheekbone, between the eyebrows, on the chin and above the lip. This creates a subtle glow which lasts even when you apply powder. Sunsation is applied to the cheeks for a light earthy warmth. This makes the skin look statuesque. I like to leave the eyes nude. Just a hint of eyeshadow and no mascara. Finally, the lips are given a matte dark brown colour. Automatic Pencil for Lips Bordeaux is used as a primer, and then dab Magic Shadow Cool Brown on to the lips. This provides a very thin texture without hiding the lip structure. Glamour Kit Gold provides a hint of shine on the lips. I think you can call the look Madonnaesque”.

Catwalk hairstyling with Alexander DinterOf course, the hairstyles are just as important as make-up that matches the outfits and philosophy of the designers. For Nobi Talai La Biosthétique International Creative Director Alexander Dinter worked with his team to create a hair look that perfectly showcases the collection’s innovation. His crash course for creating a real Nobi Talai Spring/Summer 2018 hairstyle is:
- Part the hair with an irregular curve
- Use La Biosthétique Essence de Proteine for normal to fine hair
- Then Botanique Intense Styling Cream is thoroughly worked into all the hair
- It is important not to add any volume
- The fine hair on the forehead is sectioned off
- Horizontal clips are pinned at the back of the head to create a slim silhouette and shape
- The clips are visibly and rather randomly/diagonally fastened in the hair
