SNAPSHOT: Beachy Watercolors
THE SCOOP: At Lela Rose Spring 2010, it was all about the beach. Fluttery fabrics in vibrant brights abounded; for beauty that meant ultra textured hair and watercolor-inspired eye shadows that conjured up a sunset in San Tropez. "The eye makeup is a muted version of the colors in the clothing," said Lucero. "And we're using lots of matte bronzer, so it looks like the girls fell asleep in the sun."
For hair, Gibson was inspired by the wave patterns in the collection. "It's a girl in St. Barth's who's doesn't have time to wash her hair after she' been in the water all morning," said Gibson. When you're at the beach the sun, water and wind all mix together for incredible texture. Gibson recreated that look by putting waves in the hair, then backcombing at the roots and pulling tresses into a low, bushy ponytail.
The manicures were a polished, pretty tone of pinky nude. "We're doing an old fashioned thing by matching the manicure color and pedicure color to the lips," said Lippmann. "Women used to do that with red, but we're modernizing the idea by using a pinky beige shade."
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All makeup by Stila. Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer. On eye Lucero used Convertible Color in Camelia, topped off with Duo Shadow in Cobalt and Major Major Mascara in Black. Cheeks looked rosy in Pomegranate Crush Cheek Stain. And lips were nude thanks to more Convertible Color in Camelia.
