THE SCOOP: "Erin wanted this girl to look sort of fairy-tale like, ethereal and woodland, so we created a skin that is very glowy, shimmery and soft," explained Lucia Pica, MAC Cosmetics key makeup stylist for the Erin Fetherston Fall 2011 show. The clothes and beauty truly mimicked each other with metallic hues alongside sophisticated creams and blush pinks. Regarding the process to create this look, Pica said, "Erin is thinking about the inspiration for the collection, and we discuss it. But the Erin Fetherston woman is quite defined, which makes it really easy for us to create the look!"
Odile for Catwalk by TIGI offered that her look was comprised of "lots of braids, romantic, fluffy, baby hair, but maybe very romantic, very girly, was what Erin wanted." With multiple braids around the head interlaced with metallic thread and a chignon carefully tucked underneath, this look was quite stunning and memorable.
Pattie Yankee of Dashing Diva went with what would best match the predominant pink shades in the collection, so she went with a shade of pink that gave off a heavy yet sheer iridescent pink shimmer. As it's already day three of New York Fashion Week, Yankee recommends that models (and anyone who could use it) treat their hands with a cuticle oil, such as Dashing Diva's Cuticle Nectar, and massage it in well for full moisturizing effects.
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: All products via Catwalk by TIGI. We luckily got some great tips and a modified version to do at home for this multiple-braided look, as the original version consists of extensions (which you still may need to do for one braid or both if your hair isn't long enough. Simply braid and pin in place around the head). Volume is the key to the look, so be sure to use a lot of the Curlesque Lightweight Mousse. Add in Superstar Queen for a Day Spray Thickening Spray to guarantee volume and texture. Once hair is prepped with the two products, create two braids, starting at the back of the head, bring forward and pin throughout. For the chignon, pull back the hair in the back, underneath section, twist and pin. Seal the style with Sleek Mystique Hairspray.
