From Runway to Real Way: Marc Jacobs' Deep Side Part

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/16/2012 - 2:49 PM

Marc Jacobs entire beauty look was inspired by Edie-Sedgwick, the 1960's icon with big eyes and fair skin. Marc Jacobs makeup and hair was styled perfectly to capture the essence, with a teased, tousled ponytail and a deep side part.
"This is a styled-then-slept-in look: this girl had a glamourous hairstyle the night before, and this is it the moment she gets up the next day and is maybe walking down the street for a coffee. The height around the face which I created with my new fashion-week go-to product, Redken quick tease 15, is enough to highlight the face, but is not over-the-top Amy Winehouse height. In addition, a few of the models had their hair colored very blonde and black last night, creating a stronger, more graphic silhouette which compliments this collection."
-Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Products You'll Need:

Redken body full instant bodifier volumizing foam for baby fine hair

Rockhaholic Dirty Secrety Dry Shampoo

Redken headset 25 extra strength finishing spray maximum control


How to Get the Look:

  1. Apply a generous amount of volumizing foam from roots to ends and blow dry straight
  2. Create a deep left part that is not perfectly clean, but defined.
  3. Begin to create volume at the crown by holding up 2 inch sections of hair straight up and away from the head and spraying the first 3-4 inches at hair at roots with the finishing spray, backcombing. Hold section up for a few seconds as it dries and let fall, continuing on the next section and throughout the entire head for an all-over backcombed effect.
  4. Gather hair into a low ponytail at the base of the head, leaving the height on top and adding the Rockaholic dry shampoo aerosol hair powder/dry shampoo for extra matte texture.
  5. Pull a few wisps out of the final pony ensuring it doesn't look too "done."

From Runway to Real Way: Marc Jacobs' Bold Brow

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 10/12/2012 - 2:45 PM

This season for Marc Jacobs', it was all about the strong, bold brows (ok, and maybe the clothes too) but what captured our eyes were the models bold, structured brows. The striking beauty statement was inspired by 60's style icon, Edie Sedgwick, who was known for her large eyes and doll like eye lashes. 

Designers these days have been relying much on less lashes, more brows, and Marc Jacobs strong brow was no exception.

To get the look, you'll need:
Laura Mercier's double ended eye brow brush (pull apart)
Christian Dior's backstage makeup brow brush
Laura Mercier's brow powder duo

Once you have these tools and products, you can begin to achieve this look. 

First, you'll want to define and sculpt your brows with a brow brush
Fill in sparse areas and darken color with a brow powder
Lastly, add contrast by highlighting your brow arches with a brighter liner color

From Runway to Real Way: Chadwick Bell SS 2013

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 09/11/2012 - 2:28 PM

Chadwick Bell's SS 2013 show was confirmation that a natural, dewy look is going to be TOTALLY in for next season. Hair is messily pulled back out of the face to naturally highlight the gorgeous, glowing complexion created. With a head band held in with 3 bobby pins for security, purposely created flyaways allow the face to be the focal point for this beauty look. 

To create this dewy gorgeous glow, apply a tinted moisturizer (we love Laura Mercier's oil free tinted Moisturizer) generously all over the entire face. Apply a moisturizing lip gloss (Pixi's lip booster maximizing lip gloss is amazing) to the lower lip only, the bottom is glossy while the top lip is matte and dry. 

Apply a small amount of smoky brown shadow (Lancome's smoothing eye shadow in couleur cafe is perfect) to the lid, but more importantly, highlight the inner eye with a white or pink shimmer or powder; this accentuates the eye and widens it beautifully. 
Will you be sporting this natural look for Spring/Summer 2013?
