#NYFW Backstage Beauty Report: Rebecca Minkoff
For Fall 2014, Rebecca Minkoff toyed with the masculine and feminine silhouettes and shapes. As a result the beauty look featured a justaposation of both.
On the nails, Michelle Saunders for Essie, created an updated “classic two-toned french manicure… that bring a feminine and masculine vibe to the nails.” Saunders started with two coats of Essie’s Bahama Mama ($9) followed by Essie Midnight Cami ($9) at the tip. “The combination creates a classic traditional with a twist,” she explains “but its draws influence from the collection.” Also, when creating the look, its very important to use a base coat to prevent the color from bleeding.
Lead makeup artist Sarah Lucero for Stila, explained the face was “mod maven.” Again a combination of the masculine and feminine elements. “All about that all beautiful perfected skin with no imperfactions peeking through,” Lucero shares. To offset the “masculine,” vibe Lucero added a “bold lip,” using Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lip Color in Amore ($22) along with bold brows.
Jeanie Syfu for TRESemmé, “we wanted to create a slick straight blowout,” said. The blowout was then pulled back into an understated ponytail with carefree flyaway (sometimes even adding hair to achieve the look) rounding the face. For models with short hair, Jeanie kept the hair slick and modern and finished the hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray.
