Pecheux polished the skin with Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder and Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer for a porcelain effect. He added Must Have Melon and Go Guava from the MAC Trend Forecast Spring ’15 (Lip and Cheek) for a flush of color over the tops of the cheeks. After curling the lashes, he cut up Lash 3 and placed them through the center of the upper lashes. Next, he added Haughty and Naughty Lash over the faux lashes and the center of the lower lashes for a doll-like effect. To finish, he pressed Spring Sensation from the MAC Trend Forecast Spring ’15 (Lip and Cheek) onto the lips and blended the color towards the edges.

On both the hands and feet, Saunders created a delicate, feminine nail by using essie spaghetti strap. The sheer pink hue, reminiscent of rosy cheeks, completed the overall look.

“Naeem’s inspiration this season was actress Lauren Bacall. We liked the idea of this classic, old Hollywood Naeem girl but a bit more ‘undone’. Fresh skin, glossy eyes and a stained lip is where we landed.” explained Boehmer.

Skin was evened out with Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and Radiant Creamy Concealer and set with Soft Velvet Loose Powder (new for Spring 2015). Cheeks were lightly sculpted with the right side of Fervor Dual Intensity Blush (new for Spring 2015).

On the eyes, Cappadoce Matte Multiple and Coconut Grove Matte Eyeshadow were used to add depth (Mambo Eyeliner and Bengali Matte Eyeshadow were used on models with darker skintones). Lashes were coated with Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara and Triple X Lip Gloss was dabbed on the eyelid for a glossy sheen. Finally, lips were painted with Ingrid Audacious Lipstick using a brush for a stained look.

Both hands and feet received essie fiji, a creamy pale pink shade, for an elegant but not too glamorous touch.

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Orange lipstick is definitely making a comeback next season! At DKNY Spring/Summer 2014, makeup artist Charlotte Willer working for Maybelline New York compared bold orange lips with a flawless complexion while the Essie team created a sweet look on the nails.


Charlotte evened out models complexion with Dream Lumi Concealer and FIT me! Pressed Powder. She added Dream Bouncy Blush in Hot Tamale with her fingertips directly onto cheeks, for a dewy touch of color.

The eyes were kept minimal with a light layer of Color Tattoo Metal Cream Gel Shadow in Barely Branded on the lid. Brows were groomed and shaped using Master Shape Brow Pencil.

To finish, the lips were coated with a mixture of Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Electric Orange and Neon Red and blotted to create a matte, stained finish.

On the nails, a coat of Essie Limo-scene was applied, topped with a coat of Essie Mademoiselle and finished with Essie Good To Go Top Coat.

Hair-wise, Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director at Wella Professionals, created a stylish classic look with a low side parting and a ponytail. He started by freshly washed and conditioned hair, using Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner, to ensure hair is in perfect condition. Then he applied Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier through the hair and used a soft bristle brush blow dry the hair flat to the head. Next, he used a straightening iron through the hair to create a smooth, polished look and created a low side part while gently brushing the hair flat to the head, spraying the hair with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray. Gently, using a soft bristle brush, he sprayed again with Stay Essential Finishing Spray, pulling the hair over to a low pony tail on the opposite side of the head to the parting, ensuring that all fly always are tamed. Next, he secured the hair in to the low pony tail with elastic, letting the pony tail come forward over the shoulder. Finally, Eugene took a small pump of Wella Professionals Oil Reflections, smoothed on to the palms of his hands, then took a soft brush and gently rubbed this across the palms to pick up the smallest amount of product, and then brushed the pony tail section.
