After prepping skin with NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream and NARSskin Total Replenishing Eye Cream, Kaliardos applied All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer for a flawless canvas. He added a radiant glow on the cheeks with Tribulation Blush (available Fall 2015) and the left side of the upcoming Dual-Intensity Blush in Fervor.

On the eyes, he used a shimmering beachy bronze color (the right side of Dual-Intensity Blush in in Craving) on the lid, Rue Bonaparte Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner on the waterline and coated lashes with Audacious Mascara. Then, he placed strips of 10 tiny Swarovski crystals crystals on the lower lashline for extra depth and shine.

To finish, he toned down the lips’ natural color with Radiant Creamy Concealer and topped with Chelsea Girls Lip Gloss.

Hair-wise, it was all about incredible shine and movement. Depending on the hair’s natural texture, Gilbert applied either Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz Immunity Primer or Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air-Dry Waves Styling Foam to wet hair. Next, she blow dried the hair while combing through with fingers and sprayed Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray, working in with hands while diffusing. Once all the hair was dry, she took random pieces and curled them using a 1.5 inch curling iron, leaving the roots and ends untouched. As a finishing touch, she sprayed Frizz Ease KeraFLEX Hairspray to hold the style and brushed through with a natural bristle brush.

Runway Beauty: Dewy Look at 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2015

September 14th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The dewy look is always a hit on the Spring/Summer runways but at 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2015, models rock a healthy, monochromatic illuminizer look that is totally to-die-for.

Makeup: Francelle Daly for NARS Cosmetics
Nails: Elisa Ferri for NARS Cosmetics
Hair: Paul Hanlon, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Stylist for TRESemmé

“There is a lot of see-through transparency and airiness to the collection – I wanted that to come through in the makeup. My inspiration is sensuality; the way the morning light hits you as you wake up in your bedroom, with sensual skin beaming with rays of light. I highlighted the cheek bones, high planes of the face and the bridge of the nose to accentuate and bring out that glow in each girl.” explained Daly.

She started with NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and NARS Stick Concealer before setting with NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder – Loose. Then, she added Reckless Blush and the right side of Jubilation Dual-Intensity Blush, both new for Spring 2015, on the cheeks and temples.

On the eyes, she used the right side of Jubilation Dual-Intensity Blush and Valhalla Single Eyeshadow (new for Spring 2015) and coated lashes with Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara. The lips were made glossy with Guyane Lip Gloss.

Nails were coated with Zakynthos Nail Polish, a medium tan color.

Hair-wise, the look was inspired by a cross between Stephen Klein’s 1990s photography and the romanticism of the Pre-Raphaelites, but with a punk edge. “It’s a simple, organic and youthful look that allows the collec7on to shine whilst s7ll being a look girls can achieve themselves.” said Hanlon.

He first prepped the hair by applying TRESemmé Climate Control Mousse through the hairline and mid-lengths to add volume and give it hold without soaking the hair. Next, he rough dried with the TRESemmé Salon Professional Volume Blow Dryer and used a soft bristle brush to pull out and straighten the hair around the hair line. He used TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo on the roots of the hair to create a matte and mouldable texture and then moving around the hair line, back combed fine sections of the lengths and lightly sprayed with TRESemmé Climate Control Finishing Spray to define and hold. Then, he pulled the hair into a ponytail at the crown of the head and secured with a hair tie. Next, he divided the lengths into two sections and then knotted (as you would your shoes laces), twice or three times depending on the length of the hair, secured with pins and left the ends to sstuck out for a “punkier” look. Finally, he pulled out strands around the sides and back of the hairline and finished with a spritz of TRESemmé Climate Control Finishing Spray.
