Backstage at Badgley Mischka’s Spring 2012 show, the word of the day was “glamour”.
Nail guru Deborah Lippmann created a brand new color to compliment the drama of the show’s hair and makeup looks, and celebrate the “power of dressing up”.
Inspired by the rose gold Rolex watch, the color, The Glamourous Life (which took over 3 years to develop!) was painted onto short, rounded nails and on toenails; leaving them neat in appearance, and satiny–but not frosty– in finish.

Faces were first prepped with Rodin’s Olio Lusso. Next, Pecheux used Mineralized Charged Water Moisture Gel to hydrate, followed by MAC Sculpt Foundation for coverage. On eyes, Metal-X Cream Shadow in Palladium was applied below the brow, with Metal-X Cream Shadow in Vintage Coin on lids. Mac Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Forever Green was used to created the winged-out cat eye look. MAC Haught and Naughty Lash Mascara topped off the dramatic eye. Finally, MAC lustre Lipstick in Flamingo was applied to lips.
