MAKEUP: Napoleon Perdis for Napoleon Perdis
HAIR: Adir Abergel for Fekkai
NAILS: Kim D'Amato for Priti NYC
SNAPSHOT: 1960s Natural
THE SCOOP: Showing a '60s inspired collection complete with bell sleeves, tiered fabric, and leather mini dresses the hair and makeup was kept clean and beautiful, at Elise Overland for Spring 2011
Napoleon Perdis told StyleList, "The collection was inspired by a '60s mod look, but I wanted to make it not costumey, and creating a vertical instead of a horizontal eye, making the eye bigger up and down, and using Air Brush Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation to create freshness."
"This is a real style from the runway," declared Adir Abergel, who said he consulted with Overland before the show to bring forward the confidence of the models through his hair style, which resulted in a natural, beachy look with tons of texture.
Nails again reinforced the trend of light, multi-hued browns as a must for Spring 2011. Priti NYC created the color Mushroom Flower specifically for Elise's show (it will be available for purchase at Priti NYC in Spring 2011).
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All makeup by Napoleon Perdis. Perdis says the three key elements to duplicating this look are primer, spray foundation, and mascara. For the full look, use the Napoleon Perdis Complex Skin Renewal Serum, followed by Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer as the base, and Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation to perfect the skin. Next, apply some Set Concealer Pen under the eyes, and for eyeshadow use Color Disc in Trenchcoat, a beigey-gold hue. On the lashes use Mesmer-Eyes Mascara on both top and bottom eyelashes, but don't go too '60s -- just a few coats will do. Last, go pale and natural on the lips with the Lip Pencil in Nude Awakening and DeVine Goddess lipstick in Hess.
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: All hair products by Fekkai. Work Full Volume through the hair from roots to ends, followed by Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel. Blow dry with fingers, and separate hair into either a side or center part. Roll up the hair section by section, pin, and go about your routine of getting ready/putting on your makeup. Take the pins out, and finish with just a tiny bit of the Fekkai Coiff Nonchalant Piecing and Forming Wax.
GET THE LOOK- NAILS: Muted, matte, tones are the key to getting this look, and although the Mushroom Flower polish won't be available until spring 2011, look for pale shades with mauve undertones. D'Amato used two coats of the polish, and finished off with a clear top coat.
