Runway Beauty: Embellished Eyes at Rodarte A/W 2015

February 24th, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

To create the idea of a delicate, refined beauty, models were given a soft, embellished eye and shiny, wavy locks at Rodarte A/W 2015.

Makeup: James Kaliardos for NARS Cosmetics
Hair: Odile Gilbert for John Frieda

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.

Hair: Sebastian Professional International Artist Anthony Cole
Nails: Jamberry

To create the eyes, the main focus of the makeup look, Osmund applied M·A·C Everyone’s Darlin’ Eyeshadow and topped Penny Arcade from M·A·C Trend Forecast Fall ’15/Eye over it to intensify the color. She added M·A·C Chrome Yellow Eyeshadow on the inner corners for a vivid contrast and M·A·C Mahogany Lip Pencil on the waterline. Osmund kept the rest of the face looking wet and almost sweaty with Face and Body Foundation or Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation and Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer, and added M·A·C Taupe Powder Blush and M·A·C PRO Gloss Texture to contour and highlight. The lips were hydrated with M·A·C Lip Conditioner and blotted down with foundation.

To get the hair look, Cole mixed 2 parts Sebastian Professional Mousse Forte with 1 part Sebastian Professional Gel Forte and applied it to the roots, taking 2 inch sections temple to temple from the nape of the neck up. With a flat brush, he blow dried the hair back, slightly directing the hair in the front to either side and making sure it was still brushed back. Next, he sprayed Sebastian Professional Shine Shaker on hair to create a wet look and took random pieces of hair from the side of the face before adding Sebastian Professional Gel Forte and Sebastian Professional Microweb Fiber to help create waves. He then applied Sebastian Professional Liquid Steel to keep the waves together and in place and finished with Sebastian Professional Shaper Fierce.

Lead artist Diane Kendal gave skin a bare matte finish with Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activity Serum and Nude Miracle Liquid-to-Power Makeup. She slightly defined the cheeks with Solaire Star Bronzer and the eyes with Fresh Face and Barely There from the upcoming Jason Wu for Lancome Multi-Palette and added Grandiose Mascara on curled lashes. She finished the look with Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in Delicate Lace.

On the nails, manicurist Deborah Lippmann created a modern nude look with Lancome Vernis in Love in Beige Romance.

Hair-wise, Odile Gilbert working for Kérastase Paris created a sexy, natural look with no volume at the crown. Starting with wet hair, Gilbert applied Kérastase Spray à Porter Buildable Texture Spray from roots to ends and blow dried with a diffuser, using fingers to enhance natural texture without adding volume at the roots. She parted hair in the middle and used a curling iron to create waves in the mid-lengths of the hair, leaving the ends straight. Next, she applied Kérastase V.I.P. Dry Volumizing and Texturizing Spray for texture and ran fingers through the waves to create a natural look before finishing with Kérastase Laque Dentelle Flexible Hold Hairspray.

Runway Beauty: Masculine Femininity at Marissa Webb A/W 2015

February 13th, 2015

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

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.

Marissa Webb A/W 2015 runway beauty
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: 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.

3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2015 runway beauty
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.
