TANYA TAYLOR S/S 2017

TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 019

Tanya Taylor’s collections are always a riot of color. I’ve been following her line since almost the beginning of her career. And love that I can always look forward to seeing fantastic patterns, and bright colors in her designs each season. TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 016

The Spring collection’s “island” inspiration was very apparent to the viewer. These were happy, vacation ready clothes, that just viewing made you want to jet off to a far off locale.

TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 008

TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 025

As strong as the clothing collection is, Tanya Taylor also consistently features fun, innovative beauty looks each season. While the hair and makeup was more relaxed, and vaction-y, the standout beauty feature of Spring was the funky rainbow wave nail art.

TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 037

Morgan Taylor Lead Nail Artist Gina Edwards painted each nail with Morgan Taylor New School Nude as a base coat. Next, each tip with hand-painted with half-moon designs, using a selection of multiple Morgan Taylor polishes. Featured colors that were used include Orange You Glad, West Coast Cool, Ahead of the Game, Tropical Punch, Mint Chocolate Chip, Tokyo A Go Go, Sweet Escape, and Deja Blue.

Allen Wood for Bumble and Bumble led the hair team, who created the island friendly hair style, inspired by Tanya’s trips to Cuba and Capri. To get the look: “Mist Surf Spray onto small sections of hair and twist hair around the fingers, alternating the direction of the twist so hair doesn’t become uniform. Blow dry and scrunch hair to create an organic texture. Create a natural center part and tuck hair behind the ears. Once twists have cooled, break up hair by raking with fingers. Finish with Dryspun Finish throughout roots to add volume.” –Instructions via Bumble and Bumble.

JENNY PACKHAM F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

JENNY PACKHAM FALL-WINTER 2016 017

Jenny Packham’s Fall 2016 collection was influenced by the sparkle and glam of the 1980’s party scene, a topic which carried over into the hair and makeup inspiration as well.

JENNY PACKHAM FALL-WINTER 2016 002

Makeup legend Bobbi Brown, using her eponymous line, created a glittery, yet imperfect look that appeared “as if models had done their makeup on the way to the show in a taxi”.

Michelle Saunders for essie developed nail art based on a star textile from the runway collection. Two looks were created, one using a light, natural color, and another using a very pale purple.

JENNY PACKHAM FALL-WINTER 2016 023

To get the look:
Look one: Apply First Base Coat, followed by two coats of Mademoiselle. Using a small nail art brush, paint a petite gold star on both the thumb, and one other finger using Good as Gold. Finish with Good to Go Top Coat.

Look two: Apply First Base Coat, followed by two coats of Lilacism. Using a small nail art brush, paint a petite gold star on both the thumb, and one other finger using Good as Gold. Finish with Good to Go Top Coat.

BANANA REPUBLIC F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 028 Banana Republic’s Fall collection was inspired by French women, so it’s only natural the beauty look for the show would feature an exaggerated cat eye.

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 001

STILA’s Sarah Lucero created the look, dubbed “Camille”, that featured the aforementioned cat eye, feathery lashes, and two lip colors– a vibrant red, and a lighter pink nude.

Products used to get the look include: STILA Smudge Pot in black and brown, Eyes are the Window Shadow Palette in Mind, Stay ALl Day Waterproof Brow Color, HUGE Extreme Lash Mascara, and Color Balm Lipstick in Natasha, and Olivia.

The finished look:

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 010

Cutler Salon’s Brian Buenaventura used REDKEN products to develop two looks inspired by a Parisian girl who is “chic but doesn’t care too much”. Featuring a low ponytail, with a “wispy front”, or hair that was down and romantically curled.

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 023

To get the looks:

#1:

1. Prep the hair with Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam and blow dry section by section, giving the hair volume and texture.
2. Give the hair a left side part.
3. Take a 1 1/4″ curling iron and create an “S wave” by angling the iron vertically as you curl. Repeat throughout the hair.
4. Finish by placing hair forward on the right side, leaving loose pieces in front to give it an easy, effortless feel.
5. Complete the look with Redken Quick Dry 18 Instant Finishing Spray.

#2:

1. Prep the hair with Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam and blow dry section by section, giving the hair volume and texture.
2. Give the hair a perfect middle part, leaving loose hairs in front.
3. Gather the rest of the hair into a low ponytail.
4. Take a 6 inch black elastic cord and secure onto the hair. Allow the ends of the two elastic strands to fall and blend into the ponytail. – Via Cutler/Redken

BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 006 BANANA REPUBLIC FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 007

SUNO F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

SUNO FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 015 Beauty wise, SUNO is a brand known for having gorgeous, yet understated backstage beauty looks for its shows. Natural, but with a touch of quirky. For Fall, Odile Gilbert for Kérastase created a “graphic yet chic” ponytail, featuring velvet satin ribbon, to texturize models’ hair.

SUNO FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 007

To get the look:

1. Prep and wash hair with Nutritive Bain Satin 1 and Nutritive Lait Vital.
2. On damp hair, apply the NEW! L’Incroyable Blowdry Heat Lotion all over the hair and Crème de la Crème to just the ends.
3. Next, part the hair down the middle and roughly blow-dry. After dry, apply Powder Bluff at the roots (for greasy roots) or V.I.P (for extra volume).
4. Then, pull hair back into a low ponytail and secure with an elastic. Gently loosen hair around the nape of the neck to give a lived in, natural look.
5. Spray hair all over with Laque Dentelle.
6. Next, take ribbon and wrap the ponytail, crisscrossing the ribbon down the hair. Tie the ribbon once 3/4 of the way down the ponytail.
7. Finish the style by spraying Laque Dentelle all over for a flexible, versatile hold.

SUNO FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 014

NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer created a clean, natural look that made the models appear “flushed and wind burned”, inspired by “aristocratic nomads”.

Products used to get the look include: On the face: NARSSkin Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturizer, Stick Concealer, Soft Velvet Loose Powder. On Cheeks: Leslie Audacious Lipstick On Brows: Oural Brow Gel On Lips: Unspeakable Velvet Lip Glide. Also dabbed on cheekbones and the forehead to create the sun-kissed look.

SUNO FALL-WINTER 2016- BACKSTAGE 012

To complete the look, Danielle Candido for Morgan Taylor created a dark, strong neutral nail.

To get the look: 2 coats of Latte Please were painted onto the model’s natural nails. The nail was then topped off with Need for Speed high shine top coat.

JEREMY SCOTT F/W 2016: BACKSTAGE

JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 037

Backstage at Jeremy Scott — one of the most fun– and happy shows of fashion week, the mood was pure excitement. With as much careful consideration given to the beauty looks as the clothes, the big hair and bright makeup I found was definitely not disappointing. Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director Wella Professionals, created an over the top, “slightly Barbarella” inspired big hair look.

JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 015

JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 017

To get the look: “Eugene started by prepping the hair using EIMI Sugar Lift with EIMI Perfect Setting on the ends. Over-applying the product gave the hair a chemically processed texture, making it easier to style and giving it the fifties look that is synonymous with classic pin-up style. On creating the look, Eugene shares: ‘We blew the hair out at the roots with EIMI Sugar Lift to give us a great base for the backcombing. It makes the hair feel a little bit more porous and processed which is wonderful for keeping volume.'”

JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 009

“Once the hair was dried using a large round brush, it was left to set in wide rollers before being brushed out.”

JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 024 “Eugene applied EIMI Stay Essential hairspray to hold the style and teased the hair to make it even bigger. At the end of the day, perfect pin-up hair was the finishing touch that brought together the Barbie-esque, decades-inspired ‘Cowboys and Poodles’ runway look.” -Instructions via WELLA Professionals

MAC Cosmetic’s Key Makeup Artist, Kabuki (one of my favorite makeup geniuses of NYFW!) created a “Cowgirls in Space” pin up inspired look to compliment the funky collection. “I wanted the look to feel fresh, and very Jeremy Scott”. Bright pink lips were the focal point of the look, with a swipe of custom mixed electric blue eyeliner to enhance the eye.

Last but not least, another one of my favorite backstage pro’s: Simcha Whitehill, AKA Miss Pop Nails, envisioned a stunning bright pastel nail look for each model. JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 012

JEREMY SCOTT FALL-WINTER 2016 034

“To complement Jeremy Scott’s Spring 2016 collection, Miss Pop used a line up of our five best bright lacquer shades. She painted elongated oval nail tips in each of the five shades, then added a cartoon-like flare on the pinkies in Alpine Snow to give the nails a shiny plastic look.” – Via OPI

Colors used include: Shorts Story, A Good Mandarin is Hard to Find, The Sun Never Sets, I just can’t Cope-Acabana, and To Infinity and Blue-yond. “One coat of one of each of those shades and then one coat of Kyoto pearl to get this muted metallic bright.” – Via Miss Pop

DELPOZO S/S 2016

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 094

DELPOZO is a brand that almost seems as if it would be more suitable to show at Paris fashion week. Frequently referred to as “demi-couture”, the brand’s epic, handmade collections are the highlight of my every NYFW, and the perfect way to end the frenzy of each season.

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 092

Backstage, the look was all about a fresh face topped off with glitter eyes, and ultra-long, sleek hair.

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 017

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 011

MAC lead makeup artist Monica Marmo described the look as having “skin super fresh like a flower, with metallic eyes for a little controversy.” This is “a woman from the future who is modern, but soft and beautiful.”

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 010

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 003
DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 002

Moroccanoil Creative Director Antonio Corral Calero created a very long, easy hairdo, with a twist– literally! Hair featured a small, twisted ponytail in the center.

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 022

To get the look:

Apply 22-24″ extensions, for hair that is not naturally long.
Starting with damp hair, apply Moroccanoil Treatment and Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to create the foundation of the style. Blow dry sleek and smooth.

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 007

Once thoroughly dry, create a deep left side part. Gather 3″ sections at each side of the part and mist with hairspray. Comb sections back behind the ears and secure underneath the bulk of the hair at the nape of the neck with an elastic. This small ponytail should be hidden.
Flat iron all of the loose hair, gently rolling the iron from the mid-shaft to ends to create a natural bend.
Brush all of the loose hair smooth into a very low and loose ponytail – about mid-back – and secure with an elastic.
Use your finger to divide the ponytail in half above the elastic (creating a hole). Flip the ponytail up and through the hole to create the twisted style.
Set the style with a gentle mist of hairspray. — via Moroccanoil.

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 019

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 014

Finally, Julie Kandalec for ESSIE created an adorable, subtle glitter nail that perfectly complimented the eye makeup, using Sparkle On Top.

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 001

DELPOZO- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 016

Two things I love the most about Delpozo collections: they always use interesting fabrics and materials, and play with volume. I can’t think of many other modern designers who have so much fun creating unique shapes and garments out of fabric.

CHROMAT S/S 2016

CHROMAT- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 086

 

I absolutely love photographing the Chromat show every season. Watching the brand grow from a small lingerie line, to the powerhouse of design and innovation they are today has been quite a treat.

And it’s virtually guaranteed that each season’s show will feature heart-stopping beauty looks:

CHROMAT- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 026

Dominque Samuel for MAYBELLINE New York created a bright, colorful but still sporty look to complement the SS16 collection.

CHROMAT- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 019

CHROMAT- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 011

To get the look:

Samuel perfected models’ skin with Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation, followed by Face Studio Master Conceal. Next, DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Conceer was applied under eys and nose to reflect light. Face Studio Master Contour was used to shape and accentuate the face. Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR in Tenacious Teal was applied to create the blue brows. Lip Studio Color Blue in Cherry Cherry Bang Bang was applied under eyes, with Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Taupe with me applied to add shine to the upper lids. One coat of The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara finished the eye makeup, with Baby Lips Balm applied to lips to complete the look.
