Backstage Beauty Beat: Alice + Olivia Spring 2014


The Show:Alice + Olivia 

The Hair: Though the style was switched up the day of the presentation, Nick Irwin crafted a perfectly polished chignon by first straightening the hair with irons and creating a deep side part. Using Tigi's Weightless Shine Spray (and lots of it), he slicked back the strands into a low ponytail before adding the Curlesque Strong Mousse to the tail to twist into the chignon. With a few pins to keep it in place and a blast of the shine spray for good measure, the girls were good to go!

The Makeup:Sarah Lucero gave the girls a perfectly polished look by keeping the face fresh with Stila's CC Creams, she kept the tones muted with dabs of the Convertible Color in Lillium on the cheeks and Gerbara on the lips. To make the peepers pop, Lucero applied a shimmering white shadow to the lids by hand to complete the look.

The Mani: Vanity Projects created a reverse French manicure by applying Floss Gloss's “Dirty Pink” at the tips and Sally Hansen's “Almost Almond” at the cuticle for a sheer wash of color and remain perfectly polished.
