Backstage Beauty Beat: Mara Hoffman Spring 2014
The Show:Mara Hoffman
The Hair: Drawing from Hoffman's look from Miami Swim, Nick Irwin exaggerated the look by slicking the strands all the way back with the Catwalk by Tigi Session Series True Wax before creating two small braids at the nape of the neck. The small braids were tucked and wrapped in two enormous braid extensions before receiving a blast of the Sleek Mystique Look Lock Hair Spray. The braids were wrapped in a vibrant textile strip and the crown and hairline received extra shine from the Your Highness Weightless Shine Spray.
The Makeup: Inspired by Hoffman herself, Alice Lane kept the skin and pout soft and supple with Maybelline's Fit Me Foundation and Babay Lips Lip Balm. The cheeks had a coral flush thanks to the Dream Bouncy Blush. She dotted a bit of the new Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Buff & Tuff on the lid and Pink Rebel under the lower lash line and finished with a few coats of the Volum' Express Falsies Big Eyes Mascara.
The Mani: Nail guru Honey layered sweet sunburst stripes of The Color Show Nail Lacquer in Orange Fix over a layer of Born with It.
