Go big or go home — a phrase that aptly summed up the hair and makeup at Baby Phat Tuesday night. James Kaliardos, working with MAC Cosmetics at the show, was inspired by "Talitha Getty and Marisa Berenson in Morocco, circa 1972" to create a cobalt exaggerated cat eye. The eyes were prepped with cobalt cream shadow, then topped with a sparkly blue MAC shadow, Deep Throat. Next, he added a MAC crushed metal pigment in lavender on the inner corner of the eyes. Gold pigment was placed on the brow bone and swept out past the eye. "Skin is meant to be flawless," said Kaliardos, who used a coating of MAC Mineral Cream Foundation. A hit of coral crushed pigment was placed along the top of the cheekbones, and MAC's Life is Lush Lip Jelly, a peach gloss with sparkle, finished the makeup.
Odile Gilbert, working with Moroccanoil at the show, pumped up the volume at the show, adding extensions where needed. She prepped hair with Moroccanoil Treatment to hair and extensions to hydrate and detangle hair without adding weight. Next, Gilbert applied Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream, then took medium sections of hair and used Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray to give the hair volume. Using a two-inch curling iron, Gilbert curled the sections, pinned them up and let the curls cool. She then gently brushed out all of the curls and created a French braid in the very front of the head, extending it from one side of the head to the other. She finished with a spritz of Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray.
CND's Jan Arnold used gold foils on the nails, filed in a pointed almond shape, polishing the toes with a more translucent gold shade."24-karat bling is always in," Arnold said with a smile.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
