Gato started with Fit Me! Dewy+smooth Foundation and Face Studio Master Conceal Concealer on the face. He brightened the eyes with Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer and contoured the edges of the face and cheekbones with Face Studio Master Contour. He added a touch of blush on the apples of the cheeks, blending in the faintest bit of Lip Studio Color Blur in Cherry Cherry Bang for a flushed pop.

On the eyes, Gato brushed the soft satin beige hue from The Blushes Nudes eyeshadow palette onto the lid before dusting blush from Master Contour on the crease. He traced the upper lashline with Eye Studio Brow Precise Shaping Eye Pencil in Deep Brown and finished with a single coat of The Push Up Drama Mascara in Black on upper lashes. Next, he filled in the brows with Brow Drama Pro Palette and set with Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in Translucent.

Finally, Gato completed the look with a subtle berry stained lip using Baby Lips in Quenched and patting Lip Studio Color Blur in Cherry Cherry Bang using his fingers.

Inspired by the ornate, bejeweled pieces found throughout the collection, Kandalec created a nail design that mimicked jewels trailing down the nail. She started out with one thin coat of Topless & Barefoot and one coat of Limo-scene. Then, she dotted Set In Stones on the nail near the cuticle, working the glitter toward the free edge for a gradient effect before finishing with Gel Setter Top Coat.

“To complement the bohemian pastels and gauzy romanticism of Rebecca’s collection, we focused on petal pink hues and softly illuminated skin with an unexpected sheen.” explained Stila Global Director of Creative Artistry Sarah Lucero. First, Lucero applied Stila Stay All Day Foundation and set it with Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation. To add a pink glow on the cheeks, she used All Over Shimmer Powder in Kitten. Next, she defined the eyes with the Window Shadow Palette and Smudgestick in Espresso then coated lashes with Mile High Mascara. To finish, she groomed brows with Stila All Day Brow and dabbed Color Balm Lipstick in Olivia and Vivienne.

Nails
Inspired by the unique 3D prints and color scheme in the collection, manicurist Michelle Saunders working for essie created freehand watercolor nail art for the hands. She started with one coat of blanc to make the polish shades appear brighter. Then beginning at the nail bed, she applied one coat of bikini so teeny to half of the nail. Next, she applied one coat of turquoise & caicos to the remaining half of the nail, slightly overlapping with bikini so teeny in the middle. She dipped a striping brush in lollipop and created a thin horizontal fault line across each nail. Directly after creating the fault line, she applied a generous amount of good to go top coat over the entire nail and continued to blend towards the tip of the nail until the desired look is achieved.

Hair
On damp hair, stylist Odile Gilbert working for Kérastase applied Mousse Bouffante and created a side part and blow dried hair with fingers. Section by section, she spritzed Spray A Porter and used a 2″ barrel curling iron in a vertical direction, twisting hair around the barrel and leaving the ends loose to create soft waves. Once all sections are curled, she ran fingers through the hair and sprayed V.I.P liberally throughout. Finally, she set the look in place with Laque Dentelle.

September 6th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Skater boys and mirage served as inspiration behind the beauty look at Creatures Of The Wind Spring/Summer 2015. This translated to makeup that was “raw, a little undone and effortlessly cool” with flushed, overheated cheeks and ombre faded nails that were equally as chic.

“The models looked great when they showed up for the casting—great skin, lots of freckles and a left over summer-vacation look to them, so we groomed the brows and gave the cheeks a ” explained James. He evened out skin with NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and NARS Stick Concealer only where needed and traded in bronzer for a new Lipstick for Spring, Ligueria, on the cheeks for the overheated effect. Eyes were given a slick of Vent Salé Lip Gloss, again new for Spring 2015 while brows were brushed up with NARS Oural Brow Gel.

On the nails, Katie Jane started off with butter LONDON Nail 999 Rescue Basecoat . Next, she applied the new butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Full Steam Ahead (available November 2014) to the tips before adding butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Diamond Geezer with finger to create an ombre fade. This allowed the darker shade to come through softly for added dimension and an ultra-modern effect. To finish, she topped off the look with butter LONDON Nail 999 Topcoat.

Blue Eyeliner and Marble Nails at Creatures Of The Wind A/W ’14

February 7th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At Creatures of the Wind A/W 2014, the look revolved around a pop of blue liner on the lower lashline and nude marble nails.

Creatures Of The Wind A/W '14 runway beauty
“The collection this season is about transcendence- moving from the earthly realm into the light. We wanted the makeup to reflect a sense of purity and illumination, so we focused on gleaming, luminous skin and a metallic blue liner on the inside of the eye to light the eyes from within,” says James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry.

Lead manicurist and butter LONDON Global Color Ambassador, Katie Jane Hughes, drew inspiration from the space-like/psychedelic vibe of the fabrics and patterns within the collection to create the nail look.

She used a technique called water marbling to create the nail design, with the agate stones that inspired the A/W ’14 collection as her guide. Each nail (675 in total) was made by hand last night by Katie and her team—with no two nails alike. To achieve the look, Katie poured drops of several Nail Lacquer shades (Yummy Mummy, Diamond Geezer, Posh Bird, Pearly Queen, Billy No Mates) one after another into a bowl of water, creating rings of color, much like agate. Once the color had been placed, Katie took an orange wood stick to swirl the colors together, creating a range of patterns. She then dipped the press on nail into the water, letting it sit under the water’s edge just below the pattern she wanted to lift onto the nail. Once removed, the pattern below the surface was transferred to the nail. To add playful variation to the nail look, two different base colors were used, Nail Lacquer in Trallop was used on half of the models nails and Nail Lacquer in Teddy Girl was used on the rest.
