Ohne Titel Fall/Winter 2011 Backstage

Ohne Titel Fall 2011 (25)

Backstage at Ohne Titel, futuristic, goth, and “spacey” were the words on everyone’s lips.

MAC Makeup artist Lisa Butler created a strong, smokey eye, that mimicked a cat-eye shape, without making the eye appear smaller.

To get the look:
Start with MAC Studio Moisture Fix on the face. Touch up any imperfections with Studio Finish Concealer.

On eyes:
Blend Creme Shadow in “Blase” around the entire eye. Starting in the crease, blend into a point in the outer corner of the eye. Finish by blending in a straight line below the eye. Use Mac Eyeshadow “Charcoal Brown” in contours to add definition. Finish with Mac Eye Kohl “Smolder” lining the inner corner of top lashes.

On lips: Mac Glamglass “Entertain Me” was applied to the outer corners of lips.

Hair was inspired by NASA space suits. Jimmy Paul for Bumble and Bumble created a half up/half down modified corn-row look that left hair sleek, in order to balance out the large shoulders on the clothing.

How to achieve this look: Hair was braided into four cornrows. Black thread was woven around the braids to pull them together, and keep them tight against the head.

Herve Leger: Fall 2011 Backstage Beauty

Herve Leger Fall 2011 (1)

For Fall 2011, hair at Herve Leger was sporty, and inspired by the “flipped back look you get when coming out of a swimming pool”.

The hair team was led by lead Stylist: Neil Moodie for Bumble and Bumble

To get the look, add extensions for volume and length. Start by spraying Bumble and Bumble Prep, Thickening, and Styling sprays on wet hair. Blow dry. Slick back sides of hair with gel, then pin in back.

The front, center section is then teased, and brushed over the top of the pinned sides while being blow dried.

To complete the look, the ends of the extensions were then trimmed, leaving the hair with a blunt edge.
