#NYFW: Pamella Roland Fall 2015 Beauty Backstage Recap
“The overall look is Paris in the 1970’s,” Rick DiCecca, Global Makeup Artist for Artistry explained backstage at Pamella Roland. So the look is deconstructed. Sort of a modern take on the smokey eye. No liquid eye-liner, instead I used a pencil.” Since the focus of this look was on the eyes, the beauty worked on the skin to give it a luminous glow. To create the look, Rick and his team prepped the skin with Artistry Ideal Radiance™ Illuminating Essence ($123), they then followed with Artistry Ideal Radiance™ Moisture Cream ($100). The combination helped to brighten the skin and provide much needed hydration to the models parched skin. After, Rick dabbed Artistry Youth Xtend™ Enriching Eye Cream ($71) around both eyes to refresh and moisturize. After the skin was prepped,` Rick applied Artistry Ideal Radiance™ Illuminating CC Cream (Launching May 2015) and worked Artistry Youth Xtend™ Lifting Smoothing Foundation ($49) into a fluffy powder brush, starting in the center of the face and applying the foundation in a circular motion, blending towards the hairline.
For the eyes to idea was to create a smokey that is “[not] perfect. Neat and clean yes but not perfect,” Rick explained. To do so Rick and his team used Artistry Signature Color™ Eye Shadow Quad in Smoky (Launching Fall 2015). From the quad, Eye Shadow #1 over the entire eye area, blending from the lash line, up over the lid to the eyebrow. Then, he applied Eye Shadow #3 from the lash line to just below the crease. Using a small brush, he added Eye Shadow #2 just below the crease, and along the upper and lower lashes, joining them at the outer corner.For a final touch, he lightly blended Eye Shadow #4 over the outer corners of eyes, sweeping toward the inner corners to create an ombre effect, then pulling shadow towards the outer corner of the eye to soften the wing. To finish, Rick used Artistry Signature Color™ Longwearing Eye Pencil in Black (Launching Fall 2015) on the upper and lower lash lines, smudging the liner into the lower lash base with a sponge tip. He followed with a coat of Artistry Signature Eyes™ Volume Mascara in Black ($26), and a second coat of Artistry Signature Eyes™ Length & Definition Mascara in Black ($26) to the upper lashes for length and fullness.
On the cheeks Rick applied Artistry Signature Color™ Blush in Peachy Pink (Launching Fall 2015), over the apples of the cheeks, blending towards the ear. This helped to create color and definition. To complete the look, Artistry Signature Color™ Lipstick in Silk Lilac ($25).
On the hair Celebrity hairstylist, Ted Gibson created a that not overly straight or smoothed out. The look instead had a bit sass with little bit of texture and body. To create the look, Ted Gibson and his team sprayed the hair with a volumizing spray at the scalp and a mousse from the mid-length of the hair to the ends. Then from the quarter inch section the models got a signature Gibson blowout. This helped to create texture and give the hair some body. Then he used a 1 1/2′ inch curling and created small sections from the front of the hair and he wrapped each section around the base of the iron leaving the ends out. This will create a loose effortless wave. Finally, he ran his finished by bringing all hair to the front and spraying hair spray to keep the texture and volume in place.
