Designer: Jill Stuart

Hair: Kérastase Paris

Stylist: Odile Gilbert

Inspiration: The inspirational phrase that kept coming up backstage at the Jill Stuart Spring/Summer 2014 show was “rock and roll.” Think “Girlfriends on a beach holiday waking up slightly hungover.”

Judging from this model, I think the stylist more than pulled off the look.

Get the Look: To achieve the appropriate rock and roll runway hair, it was all about texture. Start with an imperfect middle part, slightly messy and uncentered. Use Kérastase Boucles D’Art Curl Defining Hair Mousse to build the roots of hair up, then with 1 inch curling iron, make waves in middle of hair only, leaving ends straight. Finish everything with Kérastase Paris Powder Bluff Dry Shampoo and Kérastase Laque Dentelle Micro-Mist Fixing Hairspray.

Pro Tip: How do you protect your hair from overstyling? Gilbert says it’s all about using high quality products!

Manicurist: Julie Kandalec for Essie

Inspiration: Rock and roll, of course!

Get the Look: So blue it’s black, ‘After School Boy Blazer‘ is brand new for Fall and was the chic choice for both hands and feet. To achieve it at home, simply paint two coats over one coat of ‘First Base Base Coat‘ on your slightly rounded nails. Top with ‘Good to Go.’

Fall 2013 Nail Trend Alert: Looking for a new nail color? Kandalec suggests jewel tones like ‘Going Incognito,’ a deep emerald by Essie.

MAKEUP

IMG_0260Makeup Artist: Aaron De Mey, SEPHORA Artistry Ambassador

Inspiration: The cool girl who goes out at night and wakes up in the morning with messy, grungy eyes.

Get the Look: It’s all about a fresh face and a strong eye. After all, strong eyes are best offset by a flawless complexion.

  1. Start by strategically using Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick and Givenchy Mister Light Instant Light Corrector Pen on your face, only where needed to disguise redness and hide any imperfections. Then set with Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder, while letting your natural cheek color shine through. Add dimension with a light application of Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil on cheekbones, bridge of nose, and chin.
  2. Using Givenchy Magic Kajal Eye Pencil in Magic Black, sketch around the upper and lower lash line, and smudge into the crease. Add a dot of the metallic silver from Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow Palette in The Starlet 204 to the inner corners of the eye for brightness. Dab Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil on the lid for glossiness with fingertips, blend and smudge. Finish eye with generous coats of Sephora Collection Outrageous Volume Mascara in Black.
  3. Brows are combed through with Anastasia Brow Powder Duo and lips are left bare, or dabbed with a clear gloss like Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Crystal.

Spring/Summer 2012 Trends from the Runway

Hello again – I’m SO thrilled to be back with another beauty trend report for ThisThatBeauty!  I’m sitting here on a crisp, Fall day trying to fast forward in my mind to the light and flirty days of Spring and Summer 2012.  All it takes is another tour of the runways (thank you, www.style.com!) and I’m in a Springy, Summery state of mind.

What struck me first about this season were the colorful lips. I always feel a bit sad when there is a strong return to nude or neutral lips, so I was excited to see a real commitment to bold, defined lips this go ‘round.

The two lip trends that were the most memorable for me were the Peach Lip and the Red Lip.

Peach Lip

Several of the peach lips were paired with soft, demure eyes, like at Nicholas K, Candela and Porter Grey.  This is a very fresh, wearable “every day” look.  Most of us can make this look work because peach is extremely wearable.  Because it is the perfect balance between warm (red) and cool (pink), peach suits most skin tones.

The peach lip look that I really like was at Jill Stuart (pictured).  The peach lip was pronounced and matte and the eyes were rimmed with dramatic black.  It was the perfect play against her powerful, color blocked styles.  Because of the dramatic eye, this is a tougher look for the every day woman to pull off, but hey – isn’t runway supposed to be larger than life any way?

Red Lip

Red lips often make an appearance on the runway, but this season’s reds were notably bright and commanding.  These lips were most often paired with peach cheeks, soft eyes and a defined brow.  My favorite examples of this were at Jason Wu, Jen Kao and Joy Cioci (pictured).

Now, in terms of being wearable, a red lip is not for the faint of heart.  Of course, Felicia of TTB ROCKS a fabulous red lip, but she’s got the personality to match!  If you’re feeling bold, go for it, but if you’re more on the shy side, try a red gloss (or red lipstick mixed with lip balm), for a softer look.

The WOW Factor

Now, I don’t know if the super dramatic black-rimmed eyes I saw at Marc Jacobs, Monique L’Hullier and L.A.M.B. (pictured) will end up being a trend, but I thought the look was so fabulous that I felt compelled to write about it.  I question the trendiness of this look, simply because it would take so much work to make it happen!  Eyes were literally scrawled with black, and often winged out in a dramatic, almost Japanese-inspired style.  Lashes were heavy and fake and brows were very defined as well, particularly at L.A.M.B.   Fabulous!

The quickest route to a kick ass outfit is ridiculously outstanding accessories. The right statement necklace can instantly and magically transform ye olde LBD into an eye popping show stopper. While clothes, hair and makeup are the first aspects of fashion that come to mind when I think about Fashion Week, accessories are a key component of every designer’s presentation.
