SPRING 2017 NYFW SNEAK PEEKS: DAY EIGHT

The eighth and final day of NYFW’s Spring 2017 season was a special day for me, because I got to live out a dream. The dream of finally attending a Marc Jacobs show.

Thanks to my collaboration with Tumblr, I was invited to the show, and was able to photograph some of it from up in the balcony. For those of you who did not know before– I was a member of Tumblr’s SS17 NYFW team, and was sent to photograph many shows on their behalf. (You can read the official announcement here.)

But without further ado, here are my favorite photos from the Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2017 show, which completely blew me away with its beauty:

JENNY PACKHAM F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

JENNY PACKHAM FALL-WINTER 2016 017

Jenny Packham’s Fall 2016 collection was influenced by the sparkle and glam of the 1980’s party scene, a topic which carried over into the hair and makeup inspiration as well.

JENNY PACKHAM FALL-WINTER 2016 002

Makeup legend Bobbi Brown, using her eponymous line, created a glittery, yet imperfect look that appeared “as if models had done their makeup on the way to the show in a taxi”.

Michelle Saunders for essie developed nail art based on a star textile from the runway collection. Two looks were created, one using a light, natural color, and another using a very pale purple.

JENNY PACKHAM FALL-WINTER 2016 023

To get the look:
Look one: Apply First Base Coat, followed by two coats of Mademoiselle. Using a small nail art brush, paint a petite gold star on both the thumb, and one other finger using Good as Gold. Finish with Good to Go Top Coat.

Look two: Apply First Base Coat, followed by two coats of Lilacism. Using a small nail art brush, paint a petite gold star on both the thumb, and one other finger using Good as Gold. Finish with Good to Go Top Coat.

BANANA REPUBLIC F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 028 Banana Republic’s Fall collection was inspired by French women, so it’s only natural the beauty look for the show would feature an exaggerated cat eye.

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 001

STILA’s Sarah Lucero created the look, dubbed “Camille”, that featured the aforementioned cat eye, feathery lashes, and two lip colors– a vibrant red, and a lighter pink nude.

Products used to get the look include: STILA Smudge Pot in black and brown, Eyes are the Window Shadow Palette in Mind, Stay ALl Day Waterproof Brow Color, HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara, and Color Balm Lipstick in Natasha, and Olivia.

The finished look:

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 010

Cutler Salon’s Brian Buenaventura used REDKEN products to develop two looks inspired by a Parisian girl who is “chic but doesn’t care too much”. Featuring a low ponytail, with a “wispy front”, or hair that was down and romantically curled.

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 023

To get the looks:

#1:

1. Prep the hair with Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam and blow dry section by section, giving the hair volume and texture.
2. Give the hair a left side part.
3. Take a 1 1/4″ curling iron and create an “S wave” by angling the iron vertically as you curl. Repeat throughout the hair.
4. Finish by placing hair forward on the right side, leaving loose pieces in front to give it an easy, effortless feel.
5. Complete the look with Redken Quick Dry 18 Instant Finishing Spray.

#2:

1. Prep the hair with Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam and blow dry section by section, giving the hair volume and texture.
2. Give the hair a perfect middle part, leaving loose hairs in front.
3. Gather the rest of the hair into a low ponytail.
4. Take a 6 inch black elastic cord and secure onto the hair. Allow the ends of the two elastic strands to fall and blend into the ponytail. – Via Cutler/Redken

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 006 BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 007

To complete the overall beauty look, nails were painted with PritiNYC’s Dancing Queen, and finished off with a coat of Priti Loves Matte top, then 2 in 1 top coat.

SELF PORTRAIT F/W 2016

SELF PORTRAIT FALL-WINTER 2016 037

Self Portrait is one of the most exciting recent additions to the New York Fashion Week lineup. I’ve been a fan of the brand for a while now, after discovering them on ASOS.com, and I was thrilled to see they’d decided to start showing the new collections in NYC last year. Known for innovative mixes of lace with unconventional fabrics on dresses, the Fall collection included the addition of separates, turtlenecks, and bomber jackets. Backstage, Bumble and Bumble stylist Jimmy Paul developed a look that complimented the fresh faced makeup, with heavy, fringe-y clip in bangs– used to create “uniformity” amongst the models.

SELF PORTRAIT FALL-WINTER 2016 001

SELF PORTRAIT FALL-WINTER 2016 002

To get the look:  Apply Bb.Gel into hands and pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with elastic, creating a loop in the hair and allowing the rest of the ponytail to fall. For added shine, apply more Bb.Gel. Attach a clip-in bang and dampen with Prep. Each bang was razor cut to personalize the look to each model. – Via Bumble and Bumble

Gucci Westman for Tata Harper beautified models’ skin, creating a romantic, luminous, fresh faced look.

To get the look: Prep skin with Tata Harper Beautifying Face Oil, then use Reparative Moisturizer to achieve a radiant glow. Apply Restorative Eye Cream around the eyes to “refresh tired looking eyes”. Contour under cheekbones with a light bronzer, use nude lip gloss (with matching liner) to enhance lips, and apply matte brown eyeshadow to the top and bottom of eyes.

To finish the process, apply Tata Harper Revitalizing Body Oil, and Redefining Body Balm all over the body. – Via Tata Harper.

ULLA JOHNSON F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 013

Amongst the huge list of Fall 2016 NYFW shows I attended, Ulla Johnson’s show definitely wins the “Best Hair” award. I absolutely fell in love with this epic, tassel-embellished braid that I found backstage. ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 002

To get the look:
Spray dry hair with water to dampen and apply PHYTO Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray throughout. Smooth out the hairline using The Beachwaver Co. Coast Pro Ceramic Styling Iron. Part the hair to the left and blast with The Beachwaver Co Pro Dry. Create a diagonal part through the back of the head, splitting the hair in two.

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 016

French braid the hair along the diagonal, starting at the crown of the head to just behind the ear, and repeat on the opposite side.

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 005

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 004 Spray PHYTO Phytolaque Soie Finishing Spray for added texture. Gently pin the two braids using bobby pins. Finish the look with PHYTO Huile Soyeuse Lightweight Hydrating Oil. Embellish with a tassel (as seen on the runway). -Via Beauty.com

Models’ skin was pampered with a dose of Dr. Hauschka products, before makeup application began.

To start: Cleanse the skin with Dr. Hauschka Smoothing Cleansing Milk, followed by Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner.  Apply Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream all over the face then gently dab Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream on the outer corner of the eyes for added hydration.

The sun-kissed, fresh faced look was assembled as follows: Apply Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer evenly on the entire face. Conceal blemishes with Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Concealer where needed throughout the face. Layer Tarte Amazonian Clay Tartlette Matte Palette’s Force of Nature, with Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette’s Park Ave Princess, then lightly dust over the lids to create a sheer, tea-stain-like finish.

Prep the lips with Dr. Hauschka Lip Balm then layer Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Park Ave Princess with Tarte Lipsurgence Power Pigment in Exposed. Create a matte, stained finish by dusting Tarte Amazonian Clay Tartlette Palette’s Force of Nature, and Tarte Rainforest After Dark Palette’s Bare to Explore over the lips. Give the look a creamy glow by pairing Dr. Hauschka Eye Balm with Tarte Rainforest After Dark Colored Clay Eye & Cheek Palette’s Champagne Highlighter, and apply to the inner corners of the eyes, as well as the cheeks. Finish the look with Tarte Amazonian Clay Smooth Operator Finishing Powder. – Via Beauty.com

ULLA JOHNSON FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 020

To complete the look, a soft mauve manicure finished off the nails. One coat of Londontown Lakur in Mauve Over was applied to nails, and set with Londontown Kur Protective Matte Top Coat.
