It’s been a loong time since I dipped my fingers into a pot of wet-look gel (let’s not even go there).
But, seeing these pictures, hot off the autumn/winter 2014 catwalks - with styling by CATWALK by TIGI Global Creative Director Nick Irwin - I’m so tempted!
The look above, for the Osman show didn’t involve gel, but mousse – TIGI Strong Mousse to be precise, together with the TIGI Session Series Work It Hairspray.
I’m thinking it could be equally pull-offable for a hair-down evening look. Or even for everyday (without the eye make-up, maybe – although it is pretty amazing, isn’t it?! ).
I’m not sure how well it would stay in place for running about – you might need to add a thin, stretchy headband (of which there are so many around at the moment!).
I also love this look (above), for the Mark Fast show, which called for muss-it-up TIGI Session Series Salt Spray.
Love the natural, glowing make-up with pretty sheen on the cheeks, too (and that amazing knitwear – really can’t wait for all those brights to come around this autumn! ).
For easy daytime styling, the salt spray adds texture for undone looks (the same hairspray held it all in place, again, for the catwalk).
Nick Irwin did use the CATWALK by TIGI Session Series Wet Look Gel backstage at other shows, so I’m going to give it a wet look-whirl and will report back on it!
I’m sure wet gel has come a long way.
