Runway Beauty: Navy + Gold Glittery Eye at Thakoon A/W 2013

April 28th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Besides foiling, another great way to instantly perk up your eyes and create that shiny effect is to pat glitter over a dark base. Case in point? The gorgeous glitter eye spotted at Thakoon A/W 2013.

“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.”

Runway Beauty: Rodarte Fall 2013

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

Do you plan your makeup in advance when you go on vacation?

October 30th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Do you plan your makeup in advance when you go on vacation? Or do you just bring enough to give you choices and decide there?

If it’s a quick trip, then I try to plan out the one or two looks I plan to do so I don’t bring everything! If it’s longer, than I try to pack a good variety of color/neutral across product categories and figure it out there.

Thanks to Elise for today’s question! Got a question idea? Submit yours here.

“We had in our minds this idea of moving objects coming to life,” said designers Shane Gabier and Chris Peters. “It’s quite psychedelic, a little triply with the acid greens and purples.”

“We didn’t want to see the makeup before seeing the clothes but still wanted a strong look,” said James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry. “It’s very chalky and very 90′s. To balance the chalkiness in the eyes, we gave a luminosity to the cheekbones.”
