Backstage Beauty Beat: Alon Livne


THE SHOW:Alon Livne

THE HAIR:TRESemmé lead Matthew Curtis provided the armor for acrylic buns coupled with the nocturnal looks Alon Livne debuted for Fall 2013. After blow drying straight with the Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Style Spray and Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum, hair was sectioned and doused with the brand's TRES Extra Firm Control Gel for ultimate shine and a super firm hold. Starting with a section at the center of the head, the gel was combed through the hair to create a super-wet look, and pulled tightly into a ponytail just under the crown. Subsequent sections were similarly styled with heavy dollops of TRES gel, combed through for consistency, and joined into a tight, slick ponytail. Once hair was secured, strands were twisted and rolled into a neat bun that was later blow-dryed to harden the hair in place.

THE MAKEUP:Suzana Hallili gave models a barely there beauty look that kept the skin clean and fresh with a subtly smoky metallic eye. After priming the skin with per-fekt beauty's Luminous Skin Perfection Gel for an airbrushed finish, cheeks were sculpted with the Bronzed Cheek Perfection Gel, formulated with smart color technology to create the perfect flush for every skin tone. Lips were left sheer with a dab of Melrose Lip Perfection Gel, leaving all the attention on the eyes. A Gun Metal eyeshadow, custom made for show by per-fekt beauty founder Richard Anderson, was brushed on the top and bottom lids. Here's the kicker: all products are designed to be applied with hands — no brushes or sponges needed!

THE MANI: Manicurist Sunshine Outing kept nails neutral using Zoya natural polishes from airy Minka to deep Dea that complimented each model's skin. After applying Zoya's Anchor Base Coat, two coats of nude color was applied and topped with Armor Top Coat. The color was then locked in with Fast Drying Drops.
