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.

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.

“Inspired by words… the makeup was a process starting with natural, then mauve, lavender and violet were built on top of nudes.” explained Pecheux. He started by moisturizing skin with organic jojoba oil and added Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer as needed and swept Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder through the center of the face to set and provide a flawless matte finish. Next, he pressed and tapped Go Guava and Must Have Melon Lipsticks from M·A·C Trend Forecast Spring 15/Lip and Cheek (available Fall 2014) into cheeks for a peachy flush and highlighted upper cheekbones with Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish.

He curled the upper lashes and coated them with Haute & Naughty Black Lash Mascara before adding a violet mascara, Tarot (available spring/summer 2015), over them. Next, he smudged Lowlights Fluidline (available Spring/Summer 2015), a brown color, into the upper lash line to deepen and define and pressed M·A·C PRO Violetta lipstick from the lashline to crease and blending it towards the temple. He added a white pencil, Fascinating Eye Kohl, on the waterline to open the eye and finished with Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish over the browbone and inner corner of the eye.

On the lips, Pecheux applied Seasonally Peach and Spring Sensation from M·A·C Trend Forecast Spring 15/Lip and Cheek for a fresh finish.

To complement the makeup, Jin Soon Choi used products from her own and created a “fresh, polished and understated” manicure on the models. She used one coat of JINsoon Nostalgia followed by one coat of JINsoon Muse and finished with JINsoon Top Gloss.
