Radiant, healthy skin is always in season — and no show reminded us of that more than the Herve Leger by Max Azria Fall 2013 runway show.
Even though fall and winter fashions are geared toward keeping warm in the frigid temps, the team at Sephora Pro came up with a fun new way to warm up the runway — with sunny, glowing skin! Here’s how YOU can recreate the look.
Lead Sephora Pro Makeup Artist Val Garland explained that her vision for the makeup for the Herve Leger show was one of “natural beauty, California surfer casual.” In a collection full of hoods, hats, long flowing hair and caps, the makeup should not distract from the look, she explained. Radiant, bronzed skin subtly enhanced the looks without overpowering the styles!
To create the models’ glowing complexions, the Sephora Pro team used Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and Stila Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer to correct and refine the skin tones. Benefit Watt’s Up! was used to highlight dark spots where necessary and give some shimmering sheen to the cheekbones. Stila Convertible Color in Camellia and Hourglass Illume Creme-To-Powder Bronzer gave the girls’ cheeks a sunkissed glow.
Nothing is worse than obvious, stripey bronzer! To avoid looking streaky and maximize your glow, apply a light dusting of bronzer to the spots of the face that would normally catch the sun’s rays — your forehead, temples, and nose. Extend that bronzer to your eyelids and browbones to get an even glow without using any extra products.
No Mascara On The Runway
Val Garland shocked us when she explained that the makeup team would not be using mascara on the models — for any beauty-obsessed girl out there, mascara is a total staple! She explained that, “sometimes, on the catwalk, mascara just looks too modern.” In this case, mascara would take the look beyond a sunkissed surfer-girl style. If you’re skeptical about giving your mascara the season off, give an eyelash curler a try. Pump the curler against your lashes multiple times for great curl — even without product. If you MUST add mascara to your surfer casual look, make sure it’s waterproof!
At the show, the Sephora Pro team used the Sephora Eyelash Curler to maximize curl and Tarte EmphasEYES Inner Rim Brightener to perk up and brighten the eyes with minimal product.
The perfect glowing look is not complete without a polishing coat of nude lip color. To get your best results, use a semi-sheer nude color. This will play up your natural lip color rather than looking chalky or cakey, which completely cancels out the effortless effect of your casual look. For the Herve Leger show, models used Sephora Rouge Shine Lipstick in No. 01 Honeymoon.
