NYFW Spring 2013: Ted Gibson’s Ponytail-Bun Hybrid At Lela Rose

13.9.12

It’s the best of both worlds. Not as formal as a bun, but not as casual as a ponytail. Ted Gibson gives us the scoop on how to get the look he created at Lela Rose.

“The hair for this season’s show was inspired by Lela and artist Jim Hodges. Jim Hodges’ work is very light and colorful, yet deliberate so I wanted the hair to be soft and natural to complement the collection. I created this simple downtown chic knot, which worked perfectly with the pieces. I didn’t want it to look too polished, so I pulled half the knot out into a loosely textured pony.” - Ted Gibson.

To get this look:

  1. Prep the hair with build it blow drying agent, then twist random sections of hair while blow-drying to create texture.
  2. Part hair in the center, then run tame it shine lotion throughout.
  3. Pull hair back into a pony, then twist hair until it coils into a C-shaped bun.
  4. Secure the top of the bun with pins.
  5. Next, gently pull out pieces from the bottom of the bun and spritz with beautiful hold hairspray to create a textured ponytail.

NYFW Spring 2013: Natural Beauty at J. Mendel

13.9.12

Revlon Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, celebrated girlish, natural beauty with matte brown eyes and nude lips for J Mendel’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

“I wanted to create a look that is universally beautiful, that any girl would want to wear.” says Westman. “Because the collection has so many bold and bright colors and patterns, I kept it pretty simple and fresh.  I started with a muted brown shadow on the eyes, lined the inner rim, then added mascara to both the top and bottom lashes to make the eyes pop.  A warm flush of peach on the cheeks and a simple glossy lip rounded out the look.”

NYFW Spring 2013 Makeup: Strong Femininity Reigns at Rag & Bone

10.9.12

Revlon Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, created a strong but feminine look by giving models a structured brow with a subtle cheek, lip and eye for rag & bone’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

“I wanted to create a look that was bold, but still looked soft and natural,” says Westman. “I was inspired by the iconic supermodels of the 90’s and the great structure of their brows. I kept the makeup very pure, adding just a touch of natural flush to the lips by mixing two lip products together, and I used a brow pencil to create subtle freckles and a dramatic brow to top the whole look off.”

To recreate the white hot nail look worn by half of the models, celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi suggests creating a short square shape that’s slightly rounded and then smoothing out the ridges with a thick base coat to prepare them for polish.

“White can be intimidating to wear,” says Choi. “To guarantee a finished look, you should always use three coats, as it ensures that the polish will look perfectly opaque and smooth.”
