Gilbert Soliz, lead artist for the Sephora Pro Beauty team, channeled the Seventies with an eye wash of lavender, complemented by a bright red-orange lip. “The Ronson girl is edgy and raw and this season she’s a little more refined and polished,” said Soliz, who used Ronson’s own All Eye Need Eye Shadow Palette in Dani, Make Up For Ever Eye Shadow in #92 Purples and Dior Diorshow Mascara in Black for his purple-hued eye. “We’re concentrating the color on the outer corner,” said Soliz. Lips were given a coating of Sephora Collection Lip Attitude Glamour Lipstick in Red Flirt and Rosy Frivol. “The lip is fresh and current,” said Soliz. To create what he called a “velvet matte complexion,” Soliz used a blend of Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and Loose Setting Powder as well as the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit. Cheeks were given warmth with Charlotte Ronson 3 X a Charm Luminizer, Blush, Bronzer and YSL’s Touche Eclat was used where needed. “This is a girl who is uberchic,” said Soliz. “She spends quality time on her look every day, but its still very effortless.”

Styling hair for TRESemmé was Jeanie Syfu, who channeled an “Aspen ski bunny” with her “chic, relaxed, yet polished” ponytail. Syfu prepped strands with TRESemmé Split Remedy Leave-In Conditioning Treatment from root to ends, then blow dried hair straight back with a flat brush. She pulled forward a few “face-framing” flyways in front of the ear (which were straightened as needed), as a “nice, delicate detail.” Syfu then used a bit of TRES Ultra Firm Control Gel, applied with a color brush, around the hairline. Finally, the pony was finished with a spritzing of 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray. “I wanted it to look glossy and perfected,” said Syfu, who kept the updo lower on the head to accommodate the tight leather caps and knit hats worn by some of the models. “This is a very coordinated girl,” said Syfu about the personality behind the look, which was inspired, in part, by the work of Guy Bourdin. “It is young and fresh, but there is a luxe feel to it.”
Nails, done by Fleury Rose, for Color Club, were painted in a custom shade of “eggplant” with a black French tip. A shiny top coat finished the look for “wearable, edgy sophistication.”
