Backstage Beauty Beat: Tracy Reese Fall 2014


THE SHOW: Tracy Reese

THE HAIR: While Ouidad herself was backstage, her right hand Morgan Willhite took the lead, instructing the team to work with each model's natural texture. For those with straight strands, the team cocktailed products including the Wave Create Sea Spray, the PlayCurl Volumizing Styling Spray, and the Salon Series Mongongo Oil to enhance their tresses, along with help from curling irons, hot wavers, twists, and two-strand braids.

THE MAKEUP:Mally Roncal worked with the designer to come up with five beauty looks inspired by emotions. The makeup maven brought back to bold berry lip for Sultry, a natural for the Stoic girls, blue shadow with a red racing diagonally applied on the lid for the Melancholy, gilded shadow for the badass Aggressive girls, and glitter dusted on the eyes and cheeks for the Exuberant with shadows shades pulled from Roncal's Pro-Tricks Shadow Palette.

THE MANI: Keeping up with individual beauty theme, Tracy Lee offered three looks for models to wear: two coats of Sally Hansen's upcoming Somber Bliss Complete Salon Manicure; two coats of the upcoming Chili Fakes glitter polish; and a layer of Somber Bliss under the upcoming Shattered Stars.
