A retro eye and Sixties-inspired ponytail defined the beauty look backstage for Charlotte Ronson’s fall presentation.
“The liner is fun,” said lead artist, Sara Biria, for Sephora Pro, who created a straight-line variation of a cat eye and a face meant to highlight cheekbones with earthy tones. Eyes, which were the focus of the look, featured Givenchy Magic Kohl Eye Liner Pencil in Black and Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. “You have your Twiggy inspiration with the lashes and all that spikiness going on,” said Biria. “It’s your traditional cat eye, but we’re going more towards the eye shape so it’s more straight versus curving up." Lashes were coated with Dior’s DiorShow Mascara in Black and lids were coated in Stila in the Know Eye Shadow Palette. Faces featured Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 and Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Concealer. “The skin is superclean,” she said. “We don’t want to take away too much from the eyes.” Lips were left bare. “Talk about a 10-minute makeup look and you are out the door,” she said. “It’s very effortless. Anyone can do it.” Biria said the overall beauty look, like Ronson’s collection “is Sixties, it’s girly and fun, but all about not spending too much time trying to perfect it.” Looking to spring and fall, Biria said “I think color is always exciting and what I’m loving right now is it’s not too much. It’s just enough. There’s a focus. I love that we are just taking one feature of the face and focusing on that. You’re not seeing so much full face, full foundation, full contour. It’s just a pop, everything else is clean,” she said, adding, “the emerald color is huge and there are so many ways you can wear this: mascara, eyeliner, shadow, loose pigment, glitter,” she said. “I love the versatility.”
Hair, styled by Rafe Hardy, for Sexy Hair, was inspired by Sixties London and Jane Birkin. “We’re giving them a disheveled ponytails,” said Hardy. “It’s not sleek and slicked back. It has a loose feel.” Hardy began by adding Short Sexy Hair What Body Ultra Bodifying Blow Dry Gel for life and dry shampoo for “day-old” hair. He then created a deep side part, which was secured in the front of the ear with a contrasting bobby pin. “What that translates to the consumer is that you can use a little accessory, a little embellishment [in your hair style],” said Hardy. For height, Hardy back-combed with a small bristled brush, then styled the hair into a modified bouffant. “We’re creating a little bit of a different head shape,” said Hardy. “We’re lifting hair to give her a little bit of a fuller feel.” He then gathered hair into a low ponytail, which was wrapped with the models’ own hair. Wisps were pulled out on the sides for a slightly “undone” feel. Big Sexy Hair’s Sexy Hair Soy Touchable Hair Spray was used to keep the look in place. “It’s got a great hold but you can break it up and restyle it,” said Hardy of the moveable spray. “It’s flexible and great for building.” Looking to spring and fall Hardy said, “this year is all about versatility. Don’t get stuck. Try different looks. My biggest thing is this: when you have a woman that’s going to go from day to night she’ll change her clothes, she’ll change her shoes, she’ll change her makeup, she’ll leave her hair the same. Hair is your biggest accessory. Be versatile with it.”
Nails, done by Simcha Whitehill for Color Club, featured a graphic “picture frame” look, in five iterations. Colors used included black and white, two shades of gray, a red and purple, a hunter green and a purple and a sand and deep blue sea color. To create the look, Whitehall painted the nail one coat of one color, then painted a second coat in the middle, slightly smaller than the first. One of the gray shades used on the look, Zodiac, will launch later in the year. Looking to spring and fall, Whitehall predicted, nail trends based on “beautiful contrasts,” will be big. “It’s black and white for spring,” she said. “I think shades of gray for fall.”

“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
