HAIR: Peter Lennon for Privé
SNAPSHOT: Parisian Sweetheart
THE SCOOP: Rebecca Minkoff has established a following within the fashion world for her feminine, yet structured designs filled with extraordinary detail. And the hair and makeup team accentuated Minkoff's Fall 2010 collection with looks that were girly without trying too hard.
Inspired by the effortless style of Parisian women, Peter Lennon created two different hairstyles consisting of a top bun and long, textured locks. "Rebecca's style is very fresh, very sexy and young. So I wanted to create looks that weren't forced," said Lennon. "It looks done, but isn't done."
Sarah Lucero carried out this chic theme with the makeup drawing influence from French bombshell, Brigitte Bardot. She wanted the models to look as though they had "just been out in the cold." Lucero translated this with flushed cheeks, "kind of bitten" stained lips and lush lashes.
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All makeup by Stila. Skincare by Darphin. Prep with Darphin Skin Care. Create a smooth and even complexion using Stila Illuminating Liquid Foundation. Base lids with eyeshadow in Dune and top with Brown Smudge Pot and Java eyeshadow. Frame eyes with Kajal Eye Liner in Topaz, drawing a thick cat eye. Apply individual false lashes on top and layer on Convertible Mascara. Finish with Peony Convertible Color on cheeks and Cherry Crush Lip Stain.
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: All products by Privé. For the "top bun," start by spraying Privé Shining Weightless Amplifier evenly thoughout hair. Loosely gather strands into a ponytail and wrap into a high bun on the top of the head. Secure with bobby pins and finish look with Privé Finishing Spray. For the "bed head," you can simply let down hair from the bun for a soft, textured look or amplify waves by curling hair with a 1 1/2 inch barrel curling iron. Create a middle part and modestly apply Privé Finishing Texture Spray to add volume without weighing down locks.
