RACHEL ANTONOFF S/S 2013

RACHEL ANTONOFF S-S 2013 016

I’ve been a longtime fan of Rachel Antonoff‘s designs. In fact, her first presentation was the very first fashion show I ever covered for this blog! So it makes me happy to see that she is finally getting the recognition and publicity she deserves.

One of the things taking her career to the next level: her collaboration with Bass Shoes. Full disclosure: I am ADDICTED to these shoes. Not only are they comfortable, but the designs –especially of her oxfords– are unparalleled in cuteness, and comfort at their price point. I own multiple pairs, and whenever I wear my black & clear oxfords, in particular, I have strangers stopping me on the street to ask about them.

When I stopped by backstage before Rachel’s show, the first thing I noticed wasn’t the hair, makeup, or clothes– it was the new shoes. I am so excited to say that there are more clear shoes on the way!

CHRISTIAN SIRIANO S/S 2013

CHRISTIAN SIRIANO S-S 2013 078

In case anyone may have missed the 400 other times I’ve gushed over it on this blog, I LOVE SHEER. Sheer fabrics have to be my hands-down favorite element of fashion. Whether it’s black, gothy lace, or romantic tulle, I want to wear it. So as you can imagine, seeing Christian Siriano’s Spring 2013 collection was like dying, and going to Sheer Heaven.

But before we get the ballerina inspired clothing, let’s talk about the backstage beauty. Taking the concept of a ballerina “leaving practice”, the beauty looks were not those of a ballerina onstage, but mimicked the light, sweet, and slightly unkempt appearance of a ballerina’s everyday life.

AVEDA Global Creative Director Antoinette Beenders created an “off duty ballerina” top of the head bun:

To get the look:
Antoinette explained that the secret to this bun is in the twist! Hair was sprayed with “Pure Abundance Prep” to add thickness, then blown dry. Models turned their heads upside down, while stylists added a dab of Texturizing Cream to ends. Hair was then pulled to the crown, and a comb’s tail was used to rake the ridges out. The bun was created with a simple twist, which was then secured with an elastic band. Pins were added to finish the look, which was “slightly disheveled” and finished with “Air Control Hair Spray” right before the models went out on the runway.

MAC Lead Artist Polly Osmond led the team of makeup artists in developing the fresh-faced, pretty ballerina on the go makeup for the show.

To get the look:
Faces were prepped with Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation. Powder Blush in “Well Dressed” and “Tenderling” was applied to cheeks and the forehead, with a slight dab of Cream Colour Base in Luna overtop to add a highlight. “Runway Rose” was used on eyes, along with Cream Color Base in “Shell”, on the center of eyelids. A mix of concealer, and Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup was used on lids. The look was topped off with Brown mascara on top and bottom lashes.

CND lead nail tech Angi Wingle painted nails in a romantic, sparkly pink to match the metallic and pearl colors in the collection.

To get the look: 2 coats of CND “Grapefruit Sparkle” (out in May 2013) were used, followed by High Shine Top Coat.

KAREN WALKER S/S 2013: BACKSTAGE

KAREN WALKER S-S 2013 40

Karen Walker’s Spring 2013 collection was inspired by space. Yet the somewhat futuristic inspiration was toned down with a dash of 1950’s nostalgia, and whimsical sherbert hues.

CND’s Angi Wingle took the season’s creative direction quite literally, creating a white “milky way” manicure inspired by “looking skyward”. Nails were painted with 2 coats of “Studio White”, and finished with 1 coat of “Super Matte Top Coat”.

Longtime Karen Walker collaborator Laurent Philippon, for Bumble and Bumble created an edgier, tougher look for spring. Hair was lightly tousled, and featured bangs that covered models’ eyes.

To get the look: Hair was saturated with Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, then dried. Three loose braids were woven into hair.

KAREN WALKER S-S 2013 03

The braids were then flat ironed, then undone to create a slight wave. Extensions were glued in, then trimmed to create the shaggy bang fringe.

Extensions were matched to models’ natural hair color. Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder was used to help blend the hair colors.

Clinique Global Colour Artist Jenna Menard took the 1950’s optimism, and space age theme of the show and translated it into a “moon kissed” makeup look. Lips were bright with a dash of iridescence, and skin was porcelain.

To get the look:
Skin was perfected with Clinique Even Better Broad Spectrum SPF15 Foundation, and set with Sheer Stay Matte powder. Long Last Lipstick in Watermelon was applied in multiple layers along with Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Seashell Pink/Fawn Satin and Pink Slate to achieve the bright pink pout. Quickliner For Eyes Intense, in Intense Ebony was used to line eyes. The look was finished with High Impact Extreme Waterproof Mascara in Black, and Bottomlash Mascara in Black.

Monique Lhuillier S/S 2013: Backstage

MONIQUE LHULLIER S-S 2013 028

MONIQUE LHULLIER S-S 2013 031

Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2013 collection was inspired by one of my favorite things: the ocean. Naturally, that led the beauty to be appropriately mermaid-esque, featuring one of my other favorite things: the color turquoise.

Val Garland for MAC Cosmetics created one of my top looks of the season– an aquatic inspired dramatic blue and gold eye. “Jerry Hall on holiday in Mustique” served as additional inspiration.

Products used.

To get the look: Cover lid with Mac Chromacake in High Def Cyan. Follow with matching Electric Eel Eyeshadow, blending to outer edge of the eye. Brush Gold Metallic Pigment, mixed with Shine Mixing Medium onto corner of eyes. Apply Luxe Lipstick to lips. Finish with the application of Strobe Cream all over the body.

Val Garland’s additional suggestions to make it last all day/night: 1. Use a primer first. 2. Use eye pencil to color over lid, blending to the edges. 3. Powder over lid with translucent powder.

The finished look: MONIQUE LHULLIER S-S 2013 030

Kérastase’s Odile Gilbert also used the show’s aquatic theme to create a mermaid inspired look for hair. To get the look: Part hair in the center. Spray Double Force Controle Ultime Hair Spray from the center area of hair, to the tips. Next, crimp hair with a three-barrel curling iron to create waves. To achieve a “wet” finished look, apply Elixir Ultime liberally, topping the hair off with more Double Force Controle Ultime for hold.
