Ethereal beauty looks reigned at Lela Rose Sunday.
Makeup artist Tina Turnbow, working with Tarte, described the skin as “muted, matte and cloudy.” As she made her way to each model to mattefy their foreheads with Tarte T-Zone Travel powder, she said, “It’s ethereal looking. The skin is fair.” Skin was prepped with tinted moisturizer and concealer and cheek stain in the shade Blissful was applied to the top of the cheek bones. Eyes were center stage in a silvery, midnight shade. To create almost a 3-D oval shape on the lids, Turnbow began by applying shadow at the outer corner and working it in. “It comes in and around,” she said. “There are no edges anywhere on the face.” Lips were muted with a touch of tinted moisturizer.
Hairstylist Ted Gibson went for modern glamour, by creating a textured updo. “It’s uptown girl gone bad,” he said. “This is a woman who knows how to dress and how to wear her hair and she wants to funk it up a bit. It’s a French Twist that’s not so serious.”
To begin, he backcombed the hair to create a lot of texture (smooth locks, said Gibson, makes the twist look old-fashioned), and began twisting the hair from the bottom, not the top. To create height in the front, he backcombed the hair by the scalp, pinned the hair and set the entire look with Ted Gibson Beautiful Hold Hairspray.
