Backstage Beauty Beat: Marchesa Fall 2014


THE SHOW: Marchesa

THE HAIR: Mark Hampton created contrast with two wild looks! The blondes and red heads received the windswept top knot, starting with a healthy dose of Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe Prep Heat Protection Mist before blowdrying. Hampton then applied the Casual Sea Salt Texturizing Spray from root to tip, smothing the strand back into a high ponytail and into the knot. He pinned the knot in place and began pulling wisps of hair out around the face, curling them before finishing with the Casual Flexible Hold Hairspray.

The brunettes began with a generous amount of the Prep Volume Plumping Mousse throughout the hair. He then rubbed a dollop of the Creative Stick It Up Gum to his fingers before braiding five cornrows from the front to the crown to smooth the strands and braiding through the ends. He gathered the braids at the nape with an elastic and finished by adding a bit more gum to the ends for added definition.

THE MAKEUP: Gucci Westmanadded radiance to the models' faces with Revlon's PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator in Peach and Bare Light. Depending on the girl's eye shade, she either applied the upcoming ColorStay Creme Gel Liner in Rio Rush or the ColorStay Skinny Liquid Liner in Green in the crease, following the shape of the eye socket. She finished with a few swipes of mascara and a few dabs of the ColorBurst Lip Butter in Fig Jam.

THE MANI: Jin Soon Choiopted not to take away of the obvious opulence of the collection by giving the girls a few coats of Revlon by Marchesa's Grey Suede.
