Beauty at Betsey Johnson’s spring 2010 presentation was sparkly and eclectic, with a dash of naughtiness.
“It’s a good girl who’s gone bad,” said Sarah Lucero, who created faces for Stila. “She [the girl behind the look] had a one-night stand and was touching up her makeup in the taxi, using a martini glass as a mirror.” Lucero used Stila’s Hydrating Primer Perfecting Concealer for a dewy, “slightly sweaty” complexion. Eyes were lined with a black Kajal Eye Liner and lids shaded with the colors from the line’s Spring Celestial Palette as well as Demi Eyeshadow in Nanda Devi, a dark brown matte hue. Vibrantly pigmented red and pink glitter was added to eyelids, lips and cheekbones for extra energy and sass. “It’s bonkers really,” said Peter Gray, about the “bed head” hair he styled for Redken.
“It’s a little different on each girl.” Strands were teased with ample amounts of Aerate 08 mousse then backcombed with a rat-tailed, fine-toothed comb for height and texture. “Use a base of mousse for volume and less hair spray,” said Gray.”It gives the hair guts.” A bright ruffled tulle headpiece was pinned into the half-up style. “It’s a post-apocalyptic train smash, but silly and lighthearted.”
Nonie Creme, co-founder and creative director of Butter London, created a “rock ’n’ roll fairy” with nails that featured dark, maroon shade Branwen’s Feather, with a supersparkly top coat, either in pink Rosie Lee or in teal-hued Henley Regatta. “It’s glitter for grown-ups,” said Creme. “It’s sexy and smoldering.”
