After past season looks featuring jellyfish inspired braids, and colored hair pieces, the backstage beauty at Mandy Coon’s Spring show was much more low maintenance.
Rolando Beauchamp for Bumble and Bumble created a look that eschewed “effortless glamour”, and brought to mind mermaid hair one usually finds after a long day at the beach.
To get the look: Bumble and Bumble Gel was applied to damp hair, which was parted in the center, and then blown dry. Using a 1 inch curling iron, random sections of hair were curled– leaving the ends loose/un-curled.
Next hair was set with Bumble and Bumble Grooming Cream. Finally, Bb Texture Hair (Un)Dressing Cream was applied to “rough up” hair and achieve a “matte finish”.
NARS National Makeup Artist Francelle created a low maintenance look, inspired by artist Mark Rothko. Eyes were “color blocked”, and lips mimicked the stain one gets after eating raspberries.
To get the look: Francelle started with NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer on skin. Next, a combination of The Multiple in Laguna and Bronzing Powder were dusted over cheekbones. For lips, Bilbao Lipstick was applied first, followed by a dab of Valparaiso Pure Matte Lipstick over top, which Francelle applied using her finger. Lids were painted with Lhasa Eye Shadow and Douces Frances Trio (using the pink shade). Santa Monica Boulevard Eye Liner Pencil was used in the inside corners of eyes, with Black Moon Eye Liner Pencil lining the outer edges.
Mandy Coon’s collections are consistently a favorite of mine, and the Spring collection– inspired by Mandy’s love of rocks and crystals, and featuring an intriguing mix of textures and materials– is just as cutting edge as I’ve come to expect.
