Backstage Beauty Beat: Christian Siriano Fall 2014


THE SHOW:Christian Siriano

THE HAIR: To kick off the collaboration celebration, Sebastian Professionals' Anthony Cole crafted a heart-shaped chignon, starting with a blast of the brand's Dry Clean Only at the roots. He then worked in the Mousse Forte from root to ends before creating a side part and pulling the hair back into a low pony. He then teased the tail with help from the Shaper Hairspray before tucking the tresses under the hair elastic, pinning it to create a bun. He finished by pulling on the locks towards the outside of the bun to shape the heart, sealing it with another spritz of hairspray.

THE MAKEUP: Capturing the sultry appeal of the late Lisa Fonssagrives, Polly Osmand created a smoldering wing using MAC's classic Blacktrack Fluidline and smudging the sharp line for urban appeal. With a few coats of mascara and a dollops of gloss along the lash lines, the eyes looked lived in in a instant with bumped up brows for a youthful touch. The cheeks were slightly sculpted with a similar lip look, thanks to a touch of concealer and a layer of Blankety lipstick.

THE MANI: No nail polish here, as Siriano had the models remove any inch of lacquer from their tips.
