Backstage Beauty Beat: Alice + Olivia

The Show: Alice + Olivia

The Hair: Antonio Corral Calero created plush, textured braid crowns by first conditioning the hair with Moroccanoil as well as the brand’s Heat Styling Protection. Next he saturated the strands with the Volumizing Mousse before blow drying it straight, lifting the hair at the roots for more texture. Then he created a center part and pulled the hair back to let let it arch over the ear so a few loose strands could go free. He gathered the hair at the nape of the neck and created two wide loose braid and crossed them opposite of each other to create a crown, blended and pinned the hair in place. He finished the look with a blast of Glimmer Shine Spray.

The Makeup: Sarah Lucero created romantic royalty by adding a gilded touch to the eyes with the Stila Cosmetics In the Light Palette and the upcoming Metal-Eyes Foil Finish Shadow in Bronze. She added a burnished cheek with the Custom Color Blush in Self Adjusting Bronze. For the oxblood lip, she applied the upcoming Stay All Day Lip Vinyl Gloss in Merlot. Before the girls hit their marks, Lucero filled in the brows with the Stay All Day Waterproof Brow Color.

The Mani: NCLA custom designed plaid nail strips for the girls to wear during the presentation.
