Bridal Beauty Beat: Marchesa Spring 2015
“The is idea is that Keren [Craig] and Georgina [Chapman] really wanted to see texture and variance to honor each girl and each gown,” Akemi Tamaribuchi for Kérastase told us backstage on creating the hair looks for Marchesa bridal. The results were two hair looks. One is shorter pin-up up style featuring a crown of rosette that meets a classic three strand braid in the nape. The other was more classic look. However, all models were prepped with Kérastase’s Mousse Bouffant. The product was applied generously from root to tip on
dry hair. The stylists then blew dried the hair and tousled the strands to create a rope-like texture. Once this was completed Tamaribuchi and her team added Powder Bluff to create texture. On the braided-up style, the team for example created an an “S” shape underhand braid to cover the section, braiding 2″ away from the scalp to create looseness. Either way both looks were completed with Laque Dentelle. This set the hair in place.
After looking at looking at the mood board for the bridal gowns Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman created a makeup look inspired by “a mid-summer fairy princes bride.” The look is pretty, fresh and one that accentuated each girls naturally beauty. For the lightly flushed cheeks Westman dabbled Revlon’s Cream Blush in Charmed and Flushed over Skinlights Face Illuminator. The perfectly flushed cheeks were complemented by a slightly dark-eye which was crafted by applying ColorStay ShadowLinks (shades Charcoal, Greige, and Chocolate) around the crease of the eye and separting it down to the lash line. To make the eyes pop, Westman applied ColorStay Eyeliner in Black Brown around the bottom of the lash line. And finished the eyes using Illuminance Crème Shadows in Not Just Nudes and a few coats of Grow Luscious Mascara in Black. The lips were light almost natural with a hint of berry. Depending on the model skin tone Westman used Colorburst Lacquer Balms in either Coy or Enticing.
