Backstage Beauty Beat: Tracy Reese Spring 2014



The Show: Tracy Reese

The Hair: A textured knot with tendrils was the result of Morgan Willhite's handy work. Willhite and her team used Ouidad's Wave Create Sea Spray before curling the hair with triple barrel iron. She pulled back the hair intoa ponytail before pinning into the knot, leaving a few wisps free. She tackled flyaways with a touch of the Wave Create Texture Taffy before adding extra hold with the Play curl Volumizing Styling Spray. For added shine she finished with the Mongongo Oil Mutli-Use Hair Treatment.

The Makeup:Mally Roncal created a thick bold liner look using four eyeliners from her eponymous line with her Eye Precision Liquid Line, Silk Eye Liner with Brush in Jet Black, Lasting Liner in Black, and Starlight Eyeliners in: Midnight, Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate and Starshine. With bumped up brows and a fresh face, Roncal dabbed the same complementary hues from the Pro Tricks Lip Palette on the cheeks and lips. For added edge, temporary tribal tattoo were applied to the models' shoulders.

The Mani:  Sally Hansen's Tracylee provided three color choices for the models, including the Complete Salon Manicure in Mojito, Carnivale, and Batbano Blue — each with black stripes to recreate Reese's window pane print.
