New York Fashion Week: Backstage at Christian Siriano Spring 2014


Hair: Anthony Cole for Sebastian Professional

If you've ever thought your ponytail looked boring, well, you were right.  This ponytail created for the Christian Siriano Spring 2014 show was voluminous and full of texture, but didn't look too complicated.  Since Siriano's inspiration for the collection was a recent vacation to Isla Mujeres, there was an element of freshness, youth, and just-stepped-off-the-beach to the look.  Cole started by spraying Sebastian Volupt Spray on 2" sections of dry hair.  Next, he used Sebastian Mousse Forte throughout the hair (not quite touching the roots, but close to the roots) and rough dried the hair.  He pulled the hair back into a ponytail and then started shaping the front section of the hair with his fingers, creating the messy texture that you see around the face.  Next, he emulsified some Sebastian Microweb Fiber (btw emulsify=warm the product up in your hands) and used it to tease the ponytail with his fingers for even more volume.  He then used some Sebastian Shaper on the top of the head and smoothed his hands over the shape to keep any messy pieces from falling out.  To finish the look, he took a small section of hair from below the ponytail and created a small braid, which he used to wrap around the hair elastic so it would be hidden.  
Polly Osmond for Hourglass Cosmetics

Osmond prepped skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum to soothe the models' skin, before applying Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer to keep the skin looking fresh and dewy.  Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was used as needed to cover up any imperfections.  To create an other-wordly glow, Osmond applied all three shades from Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (new for holiday 2013) to the cheeks and blending.  She even used the Incandescent shade from Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (new shade) on the eyelids. To make the eyes pop she used the shimmering Shell shade from Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Shadow Palette on the inner corners of  the eyes, and along the top and bottom of the lash lines.  The eyes were finished with a coat of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.  Osmond used a little Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum on the brows to shape them and add a little shine (genius! I'm totally going to do this at home).

To complete the makeup look, Osmond prepped the lips with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil before applying Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Muse (a flattering coral shade).  Osmond and her team opted to pat the color into the lips and blend with a brush to get a diffused, airbrushed effect.   

Nails: Lisa Logan for Red Carpet Manicure

Logan prepped each nail with red carpet manicure Fake Bake for a base color, and then painted a thick color block in the middle of the nail with White Hot.  This white color acted as a base for the yellow color, The Perfect Pair, so that the color would really pop.   She simply layered The Perfect Pair over where she'd painted White Hot already.
