#NYFW Backstage Beauty/Hair Report: EMERSON Spring 2014
EMERSON Spring 2014 by Jackie Fraser-Swan was a “Punk Rock Garden Party.” In honor of this fete, the makeup, hair, and nail looks all pulled inspiration directly from the designs of the EMERSON collection. The fluffy purple flower headpieces were one of our favorite accessories seen so far this season at Fashion Week.
Makeup: Tia Hebron led the Bobbi Brown team to create a look inspired by DJ Mia Moretti’s own fun and flirty style. The makeup look featured variations of purple on eyes, lips, and cheeks, using Violet Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Black Plum Long-wear Eye Pencil, Heather Long-Wear Cream Shadow, Mulberry Eye Shadow on eyes accompanied by Cosmic Lily Lip Color and Lilac Shimmer Lip Gloss on lips. Hebron dusted Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick on cheeks.
Hair: Head stylist Jorge Luis used an arsenal of Prive products to create and keep the ultra feminine waves in place (and we can’t forget the lavender flower headpieces!). Jorge and team used Prive Texturizing Spray and Prive Root Amplifier to add texture and volume to the hair. Using a curling iron to create the waves, hair was then swooped and pinned to one side to show off the models’ eyes. The lavender flower balls were pinned to the crown of the head. To finalize the hairstyle, Prive Flash Brilliance was used to help control frizz and flyaways and to add shine.
Nails: Miss Pop for Ciaté brought her A-game (and a suitcase full of pre-designed nails) with three distinct nail looks that each were a play on the pieces and colors of EMERSON Spring 2014. The standout was the “Stripes & Safety Pins” look that Miss Pop created as an exact swatch match to one of the fabrics in the collection. Black and white vertical stripes were further accentuated by the addition of a mate top coat and — get this — a piecing through each middle finger with a safety pin for extra punk rock edge!
