Badgley Mischka S/S 2012: Backstage

Badgley Mischka Spring 2012-34

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.

LELA ROSE S/S 2012: Backstage Beauty

IMG_1131

Backstage at Lela Rose’s S/S 2012 show, the word of the morning was one “glamorous”. From the retro gorgeous hair, to the old Hollywood inspired nails, to the delicate beadwork on dresses…glam was everywhere.

To help amplify the already sparkling clothing, Deborah Lippmann used “Believe“, a hybrid gold-silver shimmer on the model’s nails.

The color was chosen to coordinate, but not match the eye makeup used, and was applied to both the short, rounded nails, and toe nails.

The best thing about “Believe”? It’s both a day or night appropriate color, that works for ALL skin tones!

Ted Gibson created an alternative to a braid for the show’s easy breezy hair look.

Starting with Build It Blow Dry Spray and Tame It Shine Lotion to tousle the hair, Ted then twisted the front section of hair from the part to the nape, using a pin to secure it. Finishing the look off with Beautiful Hold hair spray.
