To create “a tuxedo effect”, Kabuki first created a black cat eye with M·A·C PRO Creme Liner then added M·A·C PRO Pure White Acrylic Paint above it. He left the lashes bare with no mascara or faux lashes so the line stayed clean and sharp. The rest of the face was kept toned down with Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation set with Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder, M·A·C PRO Bone Beige Sculpting Powder under the cheekbones softened with M·A·C PRO Accentuate Shaping Powder, and an ultra nude lip, courtesy of Boldly Bare Lip Pencil, Siss, Fleshpot and Tanarama Lipsticks.

To create the unique 3D nails on the models, the CND Design Lab Team handcrafted the nails and their dramatic embellishments with CND® Liquid & Powder and BRISA® Gel. Then, layers of high-shine color were applied using CND® SHELLAC® brand 14+ day nail color and VINYLUX® Weekly Polish, using innovative techniques to create matte suede texture. Accented with gold chrome accessories, textural elements and layering created serious dimension, while couture camouflage in industrial tones were embellished with hand-crafted molten paillettes. The bold 3D designs, which took a total of over 900 combined hours to create, were pierced, draped, laced, torn and burnt, perfectly accessorizing The Blonds’ theatrical collection.

NYFW Exclusive Coverage: Fresh Makeup + Orange Lip at Sophie Theallet S/S 2014

September 20th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At Sophie Theallet Spring/Summer 2014, models were given a look that was “very very very fresh… a little bit of grungy” with dewy skin and a stained orange lip.

Inspired by Sophie’s collection, lead makeup artist Tom Pecheux wanted the makeup to be “as minimal as possible. It’s not about the makeup, it’s about the lifestyle.”

To start, Tom massaged Face Lightful Essence into models skin before blending Face & Body Foundation and MatchMaster Concealer (new for Spring/Summer 2014) to even out skintone. He swept Pleasure Model Extra Dimension Blush (new for Spring/Summer 2014) over the cheeks and blended Medium Deep Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Foundation under cheekbones for a warm, sun-kissed effect. He finished by adding M·A·C PRO Shine Mixing Medium above the cheekbones to highlight.

On the eyes, he dabbed Particularly Pretty, a pale pink color from Spring 14 Trend Forecast/Eye, all over the lid and topped with M·A·C PRO Shine Mixing Medium. He kept the brows very natural by brushing them upwards while keeping lashes curled and bare with no mascara.

As for the lips, Tom was going for “see-through color instead of a full-on lip”. He used a new lipstick for Spring 2014 and blended M·A·C PRO Orange Lipmix over it for a stained effect.

Nails
Manicurist Keri Blair went for a “timeless nude for the hand and feet for a polished look”. She used the same color on the fingers and toes by mixing a cool-toned nude, Quiet Time, with a warm-toned nude, P.S. None (new for Spring/Summer 2014) and kept the shape of the nails round, short and chic.

Hair
Hairstylist Peter Gray created colorful buns. He started out by spraying models’ hair with Cutler Specialist Volumizing Spray then putting hair into a ponytail. Next, he knotted pieces of scrap fabric from the collection (picked randomly by the stylists) for a melange effect, before wrapping it into a bun. “Twisting is key when roping hair, the tighter the better,” explained Peter. “This look is achievable for everyday. You can use scarves or ribbons.” Another tip to nailing the look? “Pin as you go… this way, the bun will stay no matter how active you are.”
