ERIN FETHERSTON S/S 2013

Back on the very first unofficial day of NYFW, I stopped by backstage at Erin Fetherston’s S/S 2013 show. While I sadly couldn’t stay for the presentation (I had to dash uptown to another show!), I got to spend some time learning about the girlish, fun Brigitte Bardot inspired look.

Kérastse’s Odile Gilbert took the Bardot inspiration and “toughened it up” with a (working!) zippered headband. Bangs were parted to the side, then twisted back into the zipper’s opening.

To get the look: Hair was prepped with Kérastse Mousse Volumative to add body. Hair was then curled into loose waves using a large barrel curling iron. After securing hair with the headband, the look was finished with Double Force Hair Spray, and a small dollop of Elixir Ultime Rose Milleanaire on the ends.

MAC lead makeup artist Lyne Desnoyers was inspired by photos Erin showed her, shot by photographer Ellen von Unwerth. In response, she created a “neo-cat eye” tailored to the shape of each models’ eyes. The look was thick on the upper lash line, while gently blended on the bottom.

To get the look: Skin was perfected with MAC Cosmetics Pro Concealer Palette, and Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation. A mix of Cream Colour Base in Pearl, and Luna were used to highlight cheekbones. With Skinsheen Bronzer dusted over the face to give the models a warm glow. Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline was used on upper lids for the cat eye, with the lower lashes finished with Carbon eye shadow. The lip color was a custom blend of orange, white, and nude Lip Mix.

Erin wanted nail art that complimented the clothing, but that would also serve as an additional “accessory”.

Butter London’s Katie Hughes painted nails in two shades: “Lillibet’s Jubilee”, a metallic violet-silver, and “The Full Monty”, a metallic gold.
