At Jenni Kayne's Spring 2011 collection, Girls on a west coast road trip paved the way for sun kissed skin, illuminated eyes, and natural, wavy hair.
MAKEUP: Sarah Lucero for Stila Cosmetics
HAIR: Bok-hee for Redken
SNAPSHOT: Let's Go for a Drive
THE SCOOP: Jenni Kayne painted a very clear picture of what her girl is doing this season -- "taking a California drive up the coast and ending up at Joshua Tree," explains Sarah Lucero from Stila. She's been driving with the top down, so she's a little dusty, a little sun burnt, a little wind burnt -- monochromatic and sunkissed.
Bok-hee from Redken explained that "the clothes are cute and girly, in a clean way, so the goal is to do the hair so that it felt like a woman did it, but at the same time she's not focused on herself, she's not vain, so doesn't take herself too seriously." Both looks can be worn in an everyday manner, and aren't complicated to achieve.
GET THE LOOK-MAKEUP: All makeup by Stila. Browns, golds and ochre are the colors needed to achieve this look, "Think dunes, sand, sienna, and peach," says Sarah Lucero, who reiterates that achieving perfect skin is key. For great skin coverage, start with One Step Makeup to take away redness. Use the One Step Foundation and Perfecting Concealer wherever needed, applying with the #33 foundation brush (new this fall). Use Bronze Babe Bronzer, a middle-toned bronzer, all over the t-zone for a matte, non-shimmery effect. Move onto the eyes with the Eye Primer Pot in a new shade for spring, Puppy, which is a multi-hued gold, and apply with the fingers all over lid. Also add a line of it under the bottom eyelashes with your finger to enhance the shape. Skip the mascara, and finally, head down to the lips and apply the lipstick lip stain Coconut Crush all over, layering over it with a bit of the Bronzer Babe to lock in the monochromatic, matte lip look.
GET THE LOOK-HAIR: All hair products by Redken. Start by blowing out with Touch Control 05 Mousse, using a round brush, Create a middle part, and use a one-inch barrel curling iron to give build movement, alternating the curls, one up, one down, so that it doesn't look like a finger wave and is not symmetric, but has a more natural vibe. Spray the front above the ears with just some water to give a wet, '70s feel, and add some Vinyl Glam Finishing Spray to the ends for shine. Finish up with Touch Control Hair Spray.
