NYFW Exclusive Coverage: Flushed Cheeks and Red Lip at Helmut Lang S/S 2014

September 9th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

“Effortless” was the idea behind the gorgeous red lip and flushed cheeks that lead makeup artist Hannah Murray, working for NARS Cosmetics, created for the Helmut Lang Spring/Summer 2014 show.

“This look is an elevated version of the typical Helmut Lang girl. The skin is very fresh, flushed and sporty, with a cherry lip,” explained Murray.

The skin was prepped with NARSskin Optimal Brightening Concentrate and NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream, evened out with Radiant Creamy Concealer and set with Loose Powder. For a flushed within effect, Golshan Satin Lip Pencil was mixed with Fire Down Below Lipstick and applied slightly lower than the cheeks before foundation.

Brows were kept natural with Oural Brow Gel and there was nothing on the eye other than Triple X Lip Gloss.

The lips, the focal point of the look, was created by mixing two colors, Het Loo Satin Lip Pencil and Golshan Satin Lip Pencil for a 90s grunge look, then diffused to a wash with a dome-shaped blending brush.

Michael and Nicole Colovos working for essie gave models a sheer pop of pink on the nails to complement the collection. essie ridge filing base coat was applied, followed by one coat of essie sugar daddy polish and a coat of essie good to go top coat for shine.

February 15th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

NARS teamed up with John Frieda to create the gorgeous look at Rodarte A/W 2013. While hairstylist Odile Gilbert went for a rocker princess look with a cool, “undone” texture, lead makeup artist James Kaliardos described the look as “the idea of makeup that had been applied on the beach – a bit messy, as if the mascara fell onto their faces. Speckled – like stars in the sky.”

Hair How To
Before drying the hair, Odile applied dollops of Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse were applied to build texture while ensuring a smooth finish.

After hair was blow-dried, a 2-inch iron was used to create loose bends. Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Hairspray was lightly misted over each section before it was wrapped around the iron to lock the waves in place.

Next, the waves were brushed out to make the texture look more natural, and braids on both sides were connected in the back of the head with a rose made of the models’ own hair.

To finish the look, a dime size of the Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Thermal Protection Formula was smoothed over random ends to make sure the overall effect was “undone” with a little polish. A barb wire headband was worn by some models
