February 13th, 2015

To balance out the Bianca Jagger inspired mix of femininity and masculinity in the Marissa Webb A/W 2015 collection, Maybelline artist Yadim teamed up with TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu to create a soft and fresh look on the models.

Yadim started out with Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation for the base. He applied Face Studio Master Conceal where needed and around the brows to soften them. He used a taupe shade from THE NUDES Palette to contour cheeks, Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream-Gel Shadow in Barely Branded to highlight the high plains of the face and added Eye Studio Color Molten in Rose Haze to give the cheeks a pink glow.

On the eyes, he created a tinted effect by applying Eye Studio Color Molten in Taupe Craze up to the browbone and below the lower lashline. Then he added Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream-Gel Shadow in Barely Branded on the inner corners of the eyes and the bronze shade in Eye Studio Color Molten in Endless Mocha on the lid before glossing it up with Baby Lips in Quenched. He further defined the eyes by adding Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner from the middle of the lid outward past the edge of the eye.

Finally, he added Color Sensational Lipcolor in Born With It and Color Sensational The Mattes in Nude Embrace on the lips for a soft, natural-looking effect.

Syfu created two different looks on the models. To create the braided bun for a girly look, she prepped wet hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam, rough dried it and lightly finished the hairline and ends with a Mason Pearson brush. Using a tail comb, she created a center part from the forehead to the middle of the crown, then parted hair from ear to ear and back brush this section for added texture. Next, she pulled the top section of hair straight back and secured with an elastic. Then, she divided the remaining hair into two parts and back brush and tied sections into a knot at the top of the ponytail and started a three-strand braid through the lengths, fastening ends with an elastic. She wrapped the lengths of the braid into a bun at the nape of the neck and secured with large hairpins before setting with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray.

For the texturized down-do a la Bianca Jagger at a boys club, Syfu first prepped hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Creating Sea Foam and rough dried it. Then she back brushed hair for a light, airy texture and created a center part. To finish, she applied TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Wave Perfecting Gelee and TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray throughout the hair for texture.

Runway Beauty: Glowy Skin with Red Lip at Zac Posen Spring/Summer 2015

“Simplicity is its strength, which fits with mood of this season’s collection.” Explained key make-up artist Kabuki. He first toned the skin with witch-hazel to get the skin very clean. Then, he applied a diffusing clear primer all over and a very sheer layer of Face & Body Foundation in warmer tones around the outside of the face and across the nose and cheeks. A bit of Something Special Crèmeblend Blush was used to heighten the translucent, sun-kissed look of the skin while Shine Mixing Medium added for an athletic glow on the top of the cheekbone. Any blemishes or discolorations showing through were hidden with Studio Finish Concealer applied with a tiny brush. A peach-toned concealer was used to brighten the under-eye area.

On the eyes, Groundwork Paint Pot was applied as a sheer layer to shape and lightly sculpt. M·A·C PRO Gloss Texture and M·A·C PRO Reflects Pearl Glitter were mixed together and swept over the eye for added dimension and shine while top and bottom lashes were coated with two coats of Haute & Naughty Black Lash Mascara.

To create the bold pout, Kabuki filled in the lips with Cherry Lip Pencil to enhance the natural lip shape before adding Red Lip Mix over the pencil for a deep orangy/red, semi-matte finish.

On dry hair, Gilbert created a deep side part and put an ample amount of Forme Fatale on the top and sides of the head for an ultra-glossy look. Using a small tooth comb, she combed the sides in an upwards motion, tight against the head and worked in more Forme Fatale. She added Lift Vertige to the front section for volume, and combed in an upward swoop to create a modern push wave, using the tail of the comb to detail the look. Next, she blow dried the push wave to set the style and applied Kératine Thermique throughout the rest of the lengths to create a shiny, wet look. Finally, she locked the style in place with Laque Noire.

NYFW Exclusive Coverage: Beautiful Island Girl at Christian Siriano S/S 2014

September 8th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Inspired by Isla Mujeres on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, the Christian Siriano S/S 2014 Collection was all about colors and vivid prints. As a result, the beauty look centered around glowy skin, a bright lip with beachy hair and colorblocked nails.

Makeup artist Polly Osmond working for Hourglass Cosmetics went for an “island girl” look with a focus on “a diffusion of light, texture and color”. She kept the skin fresh by first prepping with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, followed by Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer and Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer. The cheeks were then lightly contoured with the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (coming October for Holiday 2013) and finished with a dab of Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum on the apples for a glowy look.

On the eyes, Polly applied the Incandescent shade from Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette all over the lid. She added a shimmery white eyeshadow, Shell from Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Shadow Palette, to the inner corner and along the top and bottom of the lashlines to open up the eyes. Next, she coated lashes with Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara while brushed the brows with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum onto brows for a bit of shine.

Finally, the lips were prepped with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil, before coated with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Muse, a gorgeous orange coral liquid lipstick that dries down to a matte finish. The outline of the lips were then slightly blended with a lip brush for a diffused look.

Red Carpet Manicure celebrity manicurist Lisa Logan was the mastermind behind the super cool colorblocked nails for the show. “Nails shouldn’t have to compete, they should only complement,” explained Lisa. Using Red Carpet Manicure, the first at-home LED gel system, she created press-on tips with a nude base and a block of yellow down the middle. “We used Fake Bake, a natural color, and The Perfect Pair, a yellow, but added White Hot underneath the yellow to make it pop.”

To complete the beachy vibe of the look, lead stylist Anthony Cole working for Sebastian Professional gave models a “texturized, dreaded ponytail, some higher some lower”. He used three key products – Volupt Spray, Mousse Forte and Microweb Fiber – before using a straightening iron to further create waves for an erratic texture. Finally, he added a chain brand using 1/4″ section of the hair from the bottom of the ponytail and wrapped it around the ponytail for a soft, organic feel.
