Simple Beauty Backstage During Fashion Week


Michael Kors managed to get both the 60’s and 90’s into one beauty look at his most recent show. I saw the super-sleek, deep side part with an indentation in the back created by a long elastic that was clipped behind the ears.

Ruby Jean Wilson became Marc Jacobs muse with her dramatically dyed white-blond head. Who would have thought that she would have ended up opening and closing his show based solely on her transformation. When ask what prompted the change she said, “I was bored”.

Modern grunge—without the grunge was the theme of the day at the Phillip Limshe. NARS national makeup artist Francelle Daly began with a base of NARSkin Luminous Moisture Cream topped with Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and a spot treatment of Radiant Creamy Concealers where needed. The cheeks were contoured sparingly with Bronzing Powder in Casino. The eyes were smudged with NARS Eye Liner Pencil in Black Moon on the lash line then 3 coats of Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara for a chunky effect were applied. For hair a matted-down side part with an exaggerated, volumized, almost retro rock ‘n’ roll quiff on one side looked positively contemporary thanks to copious amounts of TIGI Queen for A Day Thickening Spray. Sections were heated as he blow-dried to create a frothy texture. To keep the look fresh and not dated he kept one side really flat. Nails at Lim kept to the nude theme but with an awesome twist. Manicurist Michelle Saunders used Essie to create a dual- colored tip mixing Chinchilly and Brooch for an elegant nude vertical strip that will no doubt be seen among fashion bloggers often.

A nude nail—or no nail—movement is gaining steam with each passing show. But that hasn’t stopped the industry’s nail artists from flexing their creative muscles. Michelle Huynh’s spiel at Rodarte added her touch to nude nails with layers of nude hues in coffee colors.
