Backstage Beauty Beat: Ruffian Spring 2014


The Show: Ruffian

The Hair: To embody Caroline Blackwood's signature distressed roller set, Nick Irwin started with a spritz of the Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo and a rough blow dry. With a blast if the Sleek Mystique Look-Lock Hair Spray on each section, he curled each section with the wand, pinning it to set until cool. Once curled, he back brushed the hair before adding random pins and and blowdrying with a diffuser for added texture. Finally he layered the Look-Lock Hairspray with the Your Highness Weightless Shine Spray.

The Makeup: James Kaliardos kept the makeup soft andsubtle with neutral smoky eye using MAC's upcoming Spring 2014 Trend Eye Palette's March Mist all around the eye and Particular Pretty on the lid, along with a few swipes of the Haute & Naughty Mascara on top and bottom lashes. The face stayed fresh with a bit of the Mineralize Foundation and a slight flush on the cheek from the same eye palette in April in Paris. The pout was set with the upcoming Spring 2014 Trend Lip Palette in Trendy Twist.

The Mani: The design duo decided to amp up their signature manicure, as Cheryl Natoli stenciled their new nail hues in Delirium, Fox Hunt, and Hedge Fund over Ruffian Naked with their upcoming nail stencil stickers.
