Hair
Redken Creative Consultant Guido refrained from hairspray altogether at Alberta Ferretti, opting for a more undone look this season. Instead, Guido applied guts 10 root targeted volume spray foam to create as much natural texture and volume as possible. Before loosely braiding the hair, Guido used a curling iron around the hairline to create even more volume.

“The messy structure of the braid resembles a hairstyle one might imagine a peasant girl wearing during the Renaissance. While the look itself is quite simply, the style is soft and very romantic.” explained Guido.

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.

Sophie Theallet Spring/Summer 2014 runway beauty
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.”

“Thakoon’s winter collection is inspired by summer,” said lead makeup artist Diane Kendal, working for NARS Cosmetics. “So it was a combination of rich fabrics with short-sleeved dresses and heavy stoles with dragonflies. We wanted to reflect that in the makeup, so we did a very dark midnight blue shadow, but to get that summer feel we added glitter on top. It created the perfect juxtaposition between winter and summer.”
