Vintage pretty was the order of the day at the Lela Rose show.
Sarah Lucero, a Stila Pro Artist working for Beauty.com at the show, focused on the lips. “It’s a vintage merlot look,” she said of the dramatic red lip she created using Stila Long Wear Lip Color in Daring, a red shade, mixed with a bit of brown Stila Smudge Pot. Skin was made to look “flawless” with Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer and Perfecting Concealer. Eyes were done in shades of light and dark brown using Stila Chinois, Kitten and Eden eye shadows. The top of the cheekbones got a swipe of Stila Convertible Color in Gladiola, a bold coral. Lucero finished the look with Stila’s All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer.
Devin Toth for Ted Gibson (he and manicurist Deborah Lippmann were in Los Angeles prepping clients for the Grammys) created a Thirties-meets-2011 look with the hair. First, he sectioned hair into three horizontal sections, using a curling iron with a one-inch barrel on each section to create large curls. He pinned the curls on top of the head until the hair cooled, hitting each with Gibson’s Tame It hair spray to set the curl. Next, he brushed out each section and created large marcelled waves, securing each with a large, visible bobby pin which stayed in the hair throughout the show. The back of the hair was drawn into a loose, low ponytail, with a small section of hair covering the elastic.
Lippmann’s team finished nails with Billionaire, a deep forest green shade from Lippmann Collection due out this fall.
