TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu was backstage at Jenny Packham's Fall 2013 show earlier this week. The collection was inspired by the mid-17th century and featured the designer's signature, feminine silhouettes and intricate detailing. To ensure the overall look was glamorous, yet modern, Jeanie Syfu created an elegant, loose ponytail with polished ends.
To get the look:
- Start by applying TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Blow Dry Lotion throughout the roots and mid–lengths and TRESemmé Platinum Strength Strengthening Heat Protect Spray to the ends
- Blow dry with a Mason Pearson brush for a straight finish
- Create a part down the center and then section hair in two parts, separating across the back of the head from ear to ear
- Gently tease the underneath section and along the horizontal line from ear to ear
- Loosely pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, letting hair fall out around the face
- Secure with an elastic and finish with a ribbon
butter LONDON’s Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Hughes, created the nail look for the ICB by Prabal Gurung F/W 2013 Collection. Inspired by art deco design elements and deco painters, the ICB girl is "multi-dimensional and always unpredictable", so Katie used butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Chimney Sweep on the hands and finished the look with the Matte Finish Top Coat. She then used Kitten Heels Powder Finish Foot Crème on the feet and Chimney Sweep on the toes. “For this show, we selected a colour that was gritty yet chic. There was a lot of texture in the collection so we wanted a matte nail on the hands to complement the designs.” said Katie.
John Frieda Global Creative Consultant Luigi Murenu created a glam, deconstructed chignon for last night's Zac Posen Fall 2013 show. Before drying, Luxurious Volume Volume Building Mousse was raked through models' hair to build texture while still keeping the hair soft and touchable. Hair was then pulled back into a chignon at the nape of the neck, with pieces left loose to give the look a messy, modern edge. Each loose piece was carefully crimped, resulting in a mohair-like texture that was set in place with Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray.
L'Oréal Professionnel Lead Stylist, Joseph DiMaggio created the look for the Houghton Fall 2013 Runway Show. DiMaggio used L'Oréal Professionnel True Grip Texturizing Powder, Volume Expand Leave-In Spray, Perfect Shimmer and Infinium 3 hairspray to create the look.
Designer Katharine Polk of Houghton was inspired by both the classic elegance of New York City’s Upper East Side woman and the edginess of Katharine Hepburn’s style. Her collection consisted of textiles like waxed twill and burnout velvet adorned with sequins, laminated lace, and ostrich feathers. Lead stylist for L’Oréal Professionnel, Joseph DiMaggio, juxtaposed the varying textures of the collection with a smooth and easy knot.
For yesterday's Thakoon Fall 2013 show, makeup artist Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics created the face.
"Thakoon's winter collection is inspired by summer," said Kendal. "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."
Below are the products used to create the look:
- Brow Perfector (New for Fall 2013) Available: US / Global - August 1 2013. For a similar effect, try Eyebrow Pencil.
- Brow Gel (New for Fall 2013) Available: US / Global - August 1 2013
Katie Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador, created the nail look seen at Nicole Miller's Fall 2013 collection. With the collection being a nod to girls who dress like boys, Katie created three nails to complement: Stag Do, Royal Navy with Wallis layered on top, and Royal Navy with a custom chrome shade (created for Nicole's show) used for a single finger embellishment (available Summer 2013).
Aveda Global Creative Director Antoinette Beenders styled regal fishtail braids for the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2013 collection yesterday.
“Christian and I have collaborated for many seasons. This collection is inspired by the golden age of Russian Opera and Saint Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre,” said Beenders. “The clothing is rich and opulent, so we designed a sophisticated, feminine look to properly complement it. From the front, the look has a lovely roundness. The braids at the back evoke refinement and glamour, reminiscent of a Russian girl dressed for an evening at the opera. I’m thrilled with how it all turned out.”
Models' hair was prepped pre-blowdry with Aveda Pure Abundance™ Style Prep™ to give texture and grit, and then divided into a clean center part from forehead to nape using a tail comb. Next, stylists created an inverted fishtail braid on each side of the head, beginning at the crown and working to the back of the ear, securing each with an elastic band. Flyaways were tamed with Aveda Air Control™ Hair Spray and braids were then gently massaged to add fullness. Braids were folded over one another across the back of the head, just above the nape, in a crisscross fashion, with ends tucked under and secured with bobby pins. A misting of Aveda Air Control™ Hair Spray finished the look.
butter LONDON’s Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Hughes, today created an intricate, embellished gem party nail look for Libertine’s F/W 2013 Collection. Inspired by art, the collection was a collage of color and embellishment with the foundation being a bespoke golden nail lacquer, Marbs, created for the Libertine show (available in Summer 2013). She then placed crystals, which appeared on designs that walked the runway, cascading down the nail.
For this morning's Kate Spade Fall '13 Presentation, makeup artist Neil Scibelli for Jouer created a look inspired by Kate Spade’s hometown, New York City, during the ‘70s when Andy Warhol’s Factory and Studio 54 epitomized “party glamour.”
The classic cat eye and red lip complement the collection’s vivid color palette of NYC Citron, Empire Beige, Asphalt, Maraschino, Shocking Pink and Disco Purple. In Scibelli's words:
"To begin, I used Jouer Matte Moisture Tint to create a clean and matte base for the skin, using Jouer Age-Repairing Concealer where needed. I left the brows clean and groomed. For the eyes I used Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Crème as an all over base, applying Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Amaretto in the crease. I thickly lined the eyes with Jouer Liquid Shimmer Liner in Panther, extending and winging out. I finished with Jouer Everyday Classic Wear Mascara. I applied Jouer Tint in Honeysuckle on the apples of cheeks, blending outwards for a subtle pop of color. To finish the look I used a beautiful true red lip, Jouer’s Hydrating Lipstick in Simone, topped with Essential Lip Enhancer for extra shine.”
Makeup artist Moani Lee for Hourglass created the looks seen at last night's La Perla Fall 2013 presentation. La Perla designer Giovanni Bianchi looked to Spain for inspiration, specifically the moody color palette of painter Francisco Goya, and the embellished livery of bullfighters.
“I wanted to capture the sensuality and the strength of the woman wearing this decadent lingerie,” says Lee, who focused on elegant brows, radiant skin and dramatic lips worthy of an Almodóvar heroine.
For La Perla’s Black Label collection, which referenced mysterious themes including erotic art and surrealism, Lee switched the focus from the lips to the eyes. “The second look is a fresh take on the classic smoky eye, featuring a blend of black and brown kohl liner,” she says. “There are no harsh lines, it’s a softer interpretation that showcases beautiful, almond-shaped eyes.”
The nude color on lips is a preview of Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo, a collection of sophisticated neutral lipsticks to be released in the fall. Lee took a mixmaster approach to makeup: To imbue skin with a multi-dimensional luminescence, she combined three different shades of Hourglass foundation, concealer, and finishing powder. As for the scene-stealing scarlet lip, she blended two shades of Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick. “It was one part Icon and three parts Raven,” she says. “The mixture of blue red and orange red makes for an opulent and regal fall statement that even Goya himself might have appreciated.”
