Backstage Beauty Report: Nicholas K Fall 2016
Nicholas presented his collection and to complemented the selection of clothes the beauty team created a decidedly unique look complete with incredible hair accessory.
On the face, Sarah Lucero, created a natural look accentuated with a bold lip color. All models were prepped with Stilla’s all foundation along with Aqua glow serum. For the eyes, Sarah wanted a natural eye with a strong but natural brow. To create the look, the teamed used Stilla’s Eyes are the Window palette and on the brows she used Stay All Day Waterproof Bow Color. To finish the look, the team used Stila’s Stay all Day Liquid Lipstick in Chianti. The color looks great in real life and what’s more it looks equally good on all shades.
As for the hair, while this wraparound knot is not a look one might want to wear everyday it is one that is incredible cool. To create it, the beauty team used Macadamia products. Here’s how to do it at home:
1. Starting with wet hair, apply one pump of Macadamia Professional Blow Dry Lotion ($24) from the mid-lengths to ends and blow-dry hair straight.
2. Use a flat iron on small sections to seal the straight hair.
3. Create a sharp center part on the crown only and brush hair down into two loose sections on each side of the head, in front of each shoulder.
4. Run a quarter-sized amount of Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment ($39.95) from mid-lengths to ends.
5. Take the hair section on the left side and gently place it across the neck to meet just below the right ear in a ponytail. Secure the ponytail with a hair tie.
6. Wrap an extension matching the hair color around the hair tie to achieve more length or volume if desired.
7. Twist the hair into a wrapped bun and let the end of the hair stick out 7 inches. Secure the bun with bobby-pins.
8. Spray Macadamia Professional Flex Hold Shaping Spray ($25) over all of the hair and smooth any flyaways.
9. Insert a distinctive hair piece of your choice and finish with a light mist of Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Dry Oil Micro Mist ($31.95)
