Backstage Beauty Beat: Lela Rose Fall 2014


THE SHOW: Lela Rose

THE HAIR:Ted Gibson's girls were ready to twist and shout with another amazing updo. To start, he applied his signature Build It Blow Drying Agent before drying it to ensure smoothness and volume. Gibson parted the hair in the center and twisted the tresses on both sides of the hair. Once at the nape, twist both sides into one, tuck twist it under, and pin in place as a bun. He added a pearl pin to the bun, pulled a few face-framing wisps out, and sealed the style with a blast of the Beautiful Hold Hair Spray.

THE MAKEUP: Romy Soleimaniprovided a bit of pampering for the models by hydrating the skin and applying Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Eye Cream and the Lift & Luminate Dy Cream. Once the skin was refreshed she evened the tone, hiding any flaws with Kevyn Aucoin's The Sensual Skin Enhancer. It was all about the eyes as Soleimani prepped the eye with a dab of Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Vitality Eye Roll-On before layering Aucoin's Loose Shimmer Shadow in citrine before patting on gobs of glitter in various neutral shades and sizes. After a few swipes of mascara, Soleimani polished the look with a lick of Aucoin's lip gloss in Dahliana.

THE MANI: Katie Hughes kicked off the floating nail trend by painting half the nail diagonally with Butter London's upcoming Alabaster nail lacquer.
