MAKEUP: Makky for M.A.C
HAIR: Esther Langham for Moroccanoil
SNAPSHOT: Modern Renaissance
THE SCOOP: Beautiful -- that was the word on everyone's lips backstage at Nanette Lepore. In fact, more than a few people said it was their favorite beauty look from New York Fashion Week thus far!
Langham created two hair looks for the show -- one of glossy, cascading waves and the other a romantic, loose updo. She said both were inspired by Renaissance art. "It's very romantic," she explained. "[The down look] is gorgeous, with bounce and shine."
The makeup look was a modern twist on the smoky eye/bold lipstick combo. Makky did a soft smoky eye by "blending it out so there is no line. It's not a nighttime smoky eye -- and it's young." The real kicker was his two-toned lip creation with magenta on top and burgundy on the bottom. Cool!
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All products by M.A.C. Makky did a light, blended smoky eye with Eye Kohl in Smolder and Zoom Lash Mascara. On the top lip he apply Lip Pencil in Magenta and a magenta lipstick that won't launch until fall 2010 (but you can get the same look with Lipstick in Utter Fun), and on the bottom lip he did Lip Pencil in Burgundy, Lipstick in Odyssey and Pro Lipstick in Charred Red.
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: All products by Moroccanoil. Langham applied a cocktail of Treatment mixed with Intense Curl Cream to wet hair and blew it dry. She then sprayed hair with Luminous Hair Spray and wrapped 1-inch sections around a curling iron to create long ringlet curls, made a low side part, and then brushed through the hair with Ceramic Ionic Hair Brush (not out yet!). For the updo she pulled the hair back into a low, very loose braid and rolled it up until it reached the head, and then secured with pins. She finished both looks with a light misting of Glimmer Shine Spray.
