Backstage Beauty Beat: Tibi Fall 2014



THE HAIR: Aveda's Antoinette Beenders crafted the tiniest mohawk we've ever seen, starting with a generous amount of the brand's Pure Abundance Style Prep, blow-drying the product in. Using the nose as a line of reference, she then braided a cornrow to the crown of the head. To keep the tresses out of the models's faces, she created two more cornrows on the sides of the face, tucking them under the rest of the hair. With a blast from the Air Control hairspray, the then flatironed the rest of the strands for a smooth finish, save for the ends that were tousled a bit.

THE MAKEUP: Bobbi Brown's right hand, Kim Soane, gave the Amish-meets-urban girls an edge with deep plum lip, care of the Port lipcolor. Skin was evened with a gentle flush of Soft Warmth blush. Eyes were tightly lined with the Sepia Long Wear Gel Liner with a few swipes of mascara. For a youthful appeal, Soane finished the look with a strong, brushed-up brow.

THE MANI: Drawing from a picture of a dandelion from the brand's mood board, Jin Soon Choi created a whimsical mani by layering two coats of her signature nail polish in Nostalgia. She finished the look with her Polka White top coat.
