New York Fashion Week: Backstage at Jill Stuart Spring 2014
Makeup: Aaron de Mey for Sephora Pro
De Mey started by giving the girls flawless skin with the Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick, and covering up any blemishes with the Givenchy Mister Light Instant Light Corrector Pen.
Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil was used on the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and chin to give the skin a luminous finish (also good on models' skin that's been used and abused all day from taking makeup on and off). The complexion was set with Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder before moving on to the dramatic eye look. De Mey used Givenchy Magic Kajal Eye Pencil in Magic Black around the upper and lower lash lines, and smudged it into the crease. Next, he used the silver shade from the Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No 7 Plush Shadow Palette in The Starlet 204 in the inner corners of the eyes for a dramatic, yet edgy pop. To make it even more cool and undone, he used Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Crystal dabbed on the eyelids with fingers for a glossy effect. The eyes were finished with sculpted brows using Anastasia Brow Powder Duo, and the lashes were coated with Sephora Collection Outrageous Volume Mascara in Black. The lips were left bare, with just a little lip balm for the girls that might need it.
Hair: Odile Gilbert for Kérastase Paris
Kérastase Powder Bluff (the most awesome dry shampoo ever) for even more texture. The hair was finished with Kérastase Laque Dentelle for the final touch. reated a zig-zaggy middle part and curled hair in sections with a 1/2" barrel curling iron, just from the mid-lengths to the ends of the hair. The curls were raked through with the fingers and sprayed with
Nails: Julie Candalec for Essie
Gals who are no good at nail art, like myself, will definitely appreciate this simple rockstar nail. Candalec started with Essie First Base base coat before applying 2 coats of After School Boy Blazer (blackened navy), and finishing with Good To Go quick-dry topcoat.
