Backstage Beauty Beat: Michael Costello Fall 2014


THE SHOW: Michael Costello

THE HAIR:Matt Smith and the rest of the Aveda team crafted soft waves by first using the brand's Control Force Hairspray before taking to the curling to ensure a good hold. Once curled, the tresses were brushed to loosen them up. The team then parted the hair at the top and began teasing the roots to a voluminous bump, sweeping the added volume back towards the crown where the ends were tied into a small ponytail. They sealed the style with one final blast of the hairspray before the girls slipped into their gowns.

THE MAKEUP: Anna Conte and the makeup mavens of Aveda channeled the '60s with a luxe lined cat eye, starting by evening tone with the brand's Inner Light Dual Foundation for a velvety finish. For the eyes Conte blended a slew of shimmering nudes before lining the top lash line with the Petal Essence Eye Definer and a few swipes of Mosscara. In lieu of lipstick, the team opted to dab a bit of concealer and top it with the upcomign Honey Tree Lip Glaze.

THE MANI: The Nail Boutique's Sabrina Carson topped off the models' tips with two easy layers of Essie's Cocktails and Coconuts.
