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.

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 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

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.

HONOR FALL/WINTER 2015

HONOR Fall-Winter 2015 025

Since their NYFW debut 5 years ago, HONOR has become one of the most reliable brands around for gorgeous, whimsical womenswear. For Fall 2015, designer Giovanna Randall was inspired by the forest, a theme which presented itself in both the collection, and the show’s set design. Both of which completely blew me away.

Backstage, the inspiration was classic Catherine Deneuve, with 70’s inspired hair, and girlish headbands featured on models.

HONOR S/S 2015

HONOR S-S 2015 NYFW 063

HONOR is one of those special NYC based brands that I’ve been following almost since their inception. Back in 2011, I shot their second show ever, and fell in love with their unique mix of whimsy, and retro sensibility.

HONOR S-S 2015 NYFW 003
Such a fun fabric!

Each season, they create and incredibly detailed inspiration story behind the collection. For Spring, the story was as follows:

“A beautiful debutante falls in love with a George Harrison-type bad boy. They go on a physical and spiritual “trip” together. She finally realizes she has fallen for a bad person and begins to untangle herself from him. She is stronger for her experience.”

For the beauty look, this translated into a relaxed low ponytail, bold blue winged eyeshadow, and a fun blue and pearl nail.
