Models sported a clean, relaxed beauty look at BCBG Max Azria Thursday morning.
“Why can’t we go more blank for fall,” asked makeup artist Jay Manuel. And blank BCBG went.
Val Garland, working with the makeup collection, Jay Manuel Beauty, at the show, aimed for a girl who felt like a performer. Garland used Filter Finish Collection Skin Perfector Foundation on the girls, with a light wash of Jay Manuel Filter Finish Collection Skin Face Lift in Platinum, VIP and Gold on the eyes, mixed with Jay Manuel Beauty the Ultimate Lip Gloss in Wet. Eyes were then lightly dusted with Intense Color Eyeshadow Quad in Promiscuous, Tempt or Crave depending on the models’ skin tone. Garland dabbed lips with a sheer, nude shade, The Ultimate Lip Gloss in Desire. The overall look was “fresh-faced and slightly moist,” Garland said. “The skin looks like skin.” Pre-makeup, models used Dr. Lancer skin-care products. “What we want to do is give the models glow-y, radiant skin,” said Julia Zaman, national sales and education manager for the brand.
Orlando Pita, working for TRESemmé at the show, styled the girls hair in loose, uneven waves using the brand’s Beauty-Full Volume Maximizer. Then he ran a curling iron through one-inch sections of hair, starting two inches from the crown and leaving the ends straight, before brushing through the curls with a soft bristle brush and spritzing with TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume hairspray. The end result was uneven waves. “The hair look is kind of Bohemian girl-performance artist,” Pita said.
Nails were handled by Rebecca Isa for Zoya, who painted a neutral pink, Scarlett, over Zoya’s Naked Manicure Set, which helps camouflage nail damage or discoloration.
