Backstage Beauty Beat: Herve Leger Spring 2014


The Show: Hervé Léger

The Hair: Channeling the brand's sexy Ibiza vacationer, Laurent Philippon went for a wet look for the tresses. He saturated the roots with a mix Bumble and Bumble's Full Form Mousse and Bb. Gel before blowdrying as is, clipping the roots to maintain the piecy look.

The Makeup: Val Garlandopted for sheer sex appeal with dewy bronzed skin courtesy of Marc Jacobs BeautyGenius Gel Super-Charge Foundation and O!Mega Bronze Perfect Tan in Tantric. The smoky eye came from a combination of Sephora's Waterproof Smoky Cream Liner in “Must Have,” Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer and his Style Eye-Con No. 3 Plush Shadow in The Glam and The Lolita. Jacobs' Brow Tamer Grooming Gel bumped up the brows while Buxom bulked up lashes. To lighten the look just a bit Garland dappled Josie Maran's Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil to the high points on the face. Sephora's Retractable Lip Liner in No.1 Nude, YSL's Rouge Volupté in Nude Beige, and Jacobs' Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl in “Sweet Escape” came together to make a muted but moist lip.

The Mani: The models' tips got int he nude with an easy two coats of OPI's “Barre My Soul.”
