Backstage Beauty Beat: Alice + Olivia Fall 2014


THE SHOW: Alice + Olivia

THE HAIR: Matthew Curtis  channeled the decadence of the collection with fluffy curls. He started by creating a center part before curling the whole head with a one-inch curling iron, pinning the curl until they cooled. After that, he removed each curl one at a time, gently backcombing the lock for volume. He teased the roots with a healthy blast of TRESemmé's Two Freeze Hold Hairspray, before polishing the look with a spritz of hairspray to smooth the part.

THE MAKEUP: Sarah Lucero created a vampy eye and lip look for the fantastical collection by crafting a thick cat eye with Stila's Stay All Day Liner in Intense Black, filing it in with the Black Smudge Pot, and swiping on a few coats of Major Major Mascara. She bumped up the brows to match with the Stay All Day Brow Pen. After evening the tone for a flawless finish, she added a gentle flush with the Pink Glow Baked Cheek Duo. While many of the models rocked moisturized, nude lips, others perfected their pouts with the Stay All Day Lip Vinyl in merlot.

THE MANI: Miss Popadded a glamorously bohemian twist to the tips and toes with either two layers of Essie's Midnight Cami or Licorice. Using the brand's Good as Gold, she used a dotting tool to create a medium sized dot at the center tip and towards the cuticle before surrounding them with smaller gilded dots and sealing the look with a top coat.
