Gina Edwards for Julep
Sunday Riley: Make-up
James Pecis: Bumble and Bumble Hair
Backstage (really, upstairs)...from the spacious event space Highline Stages---was already a hub of activity when we got there two hours before the scheduled start of the Fall 2013 Yigal Azrouël RTW Fashion Show.
Julep nail polish in KIRA-an oxblood-a shade that works on all skin tones-ad is "edgy-everyone can wear it...
|Gina Edwards-with Julep's Kira Nail Polish and freedom Top Coat. Expect a lot of press for Ms. Edwards-she is lead manicurist of a lot of NYFW shows for Fall 2013. Talent and congeniality are a very good combo, imo.|
|model's get multi-tasked|
|Julep- Kira nail polish works well with smoky eye make-up|
|Sunday Riley---has her own skin care/make-up lines|
For off the catwalk---"focus on the eyes"---without the contouring...sheer tinted lips, light gloss...peachy/pink
|a make-up artist gets a tutorial...|
|for extra night time chisel-contour blush along the the lower part of the cheekbone-put on creme/powder bronze-or neutral brown...and also on the circular nostril tips of nose for a narrower line...as pictured.|
|then blend blend BLEND with a brush---no harsh lines.|
|darker black/grey shadow is concentrated from the middle of the eye-out-for a subtle lift-not full blown cats eye. Inner rims lined with black pencil|
|make-up table includes the pro's top cult favs-Embryolisse. Jao hand cleanser, Caldalie, Bioderma Creatine and of course Sunday Riley's own Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer and Creme Radiance Breathable Ageless Foundation|
|it took three different eye brushes---blend the shadow just right...a lot better finished looked that way|
|James Pecis-Hair for Bumble+Bumble|
|Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray (4oz $25)-helps get that wavy beachy, wind swept look that is a sexy, classic style-with a lot of texture---and a hair style-btw- we saw at a lot of shows. Why not-it makes th models look even more beautiful |
Thick, healthy tresses, lots of shine---and for the gals who had thin hair-they got extensions for added volume.
|fyi-playing cards used to prevent ridges in the hair where the pin curl clips are|
|hair blown out-then pin curls for some waves---|
Healthy eats and sweets disappeared in about a half hour....
