Backstage Beauty Beat: Richard Chai Fall 2014


THE SHOW: Richard Chai

THE HAIR: Aveda's FrankRizzieri and Kevin Ryan started with a blast of the Pure AbundanceStyle Prep, andopted to skip the pretty by using the models' natural textures and enhancing it with a few spritzes of the Air Control Hairspray. He finished by creating a deep side part and pinning the thicker portion behind the ear for a distressed combover.

THE MAKEUP: To refresh their skin, Joy Fennell applied Dr. Jart+'s Water Fuse Water-Full Hydrogel Mask to calm and hydrate before priming the skin with the brand's Ceramidin Cream.'s Romy Soleimani then evened the tone with Kevyn Aucoin's Liquid Airbrush Foundation, hiding any flaws along the way. It was all about the eyes as she created a soft smokey eye with the Loose Shimmer Shadow in Jade, bringing the shadow down to the lower lash line. She added a bold bolt of black liquid liner before she filled in the brows for a youthful edge and added a few swipes of mascara. Aside from a little contouring, the rest of the face was left fresh. Even the lips even covered with concealer with only a bit of balm on top for moisture.

THE MANI: Nails were left naked or any polish was removed before the models hit the runway.
