Backstage Beauty Beat: Christian Siriano Spring 2014


The Show: Christian Siriano

The Hair: After recently partnering with Sebastian Professional, the brand's Anthony Cole created a piecey ponytail by first spritzing the brand's Volupt Spray to the roots and moving the hair over the forehead for lift. He then applied a golf ball size of the Mousse Forte to the rest of the hair before a rough blow dry, then pulling the hair back into a ponytail. After tying off the ponytail, Cole created S waves on the tail with a curling iron and pressing them flat with a straightening iron. He then emulsified and applied the Microweb Fiber to the ponytail for more movement before spritzing Shaper Fierce on the top of the head and pushing pieces of hair to the back for more texture. Finally, he chain braided a 1/4-inch section of hair from the ponytail and wrapped it around the elastic.

The Makeup: The team from Hourglass created a radiant glow for the girls using the branding upcoming Ambient Lighting Palette that will hit shelves in time for the holidays. They dusted a bit of the lightest hue from the Vol. 6 Neo-Classic Eye Palette to the inner and outer corners of the eye and a few coats of the Superficial Lash Mascara for peepers that pop. The team opted for a bright, matte pout using the Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Muse before dappling the brand's Veil Mineral Primer on the cheeks for a matte smooth finish.

The Mani: Red Carpet Manicure's Lisa Logan crafted a color-blocked manicure by layering Fake Bake as the base before painting a block from the middle of the nail to the tip in White Hot before adding The Perfect Pair on top for a vibrant pop.
