Pamella Roland‘s Spring 2015 collection was inspired by “the gardens of Kyoto, Japan.” Cherry blossoms influenced lead makeup artist Matin Maulawizada to create a strong yet effortless makeup look using Laura Mercier products, and hairstylist Ted Gibson, who used a hair accessory to punctuate the look.
Pamella Roland Runway — Gorgeous Pink Makeup For Spring 2015 Show
Here’s the exact makeup how to:
Face: A flawless, youthful complexion
“Matin first prepped with the skin with Laura Mercier Repair Eye Serum, ($83), applying it on the t-zone, underneath eyes and on the cheekbones to illuminate the skin.
Next, he massaged Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, ($33) into the skin to create an even canvas.
He then dabbed Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide, ($48) in one shade lighter than the models’ skin all over the face to provide lightweight coverage.
To eliminate any puffiness and to brighten the under-eye area, he applied Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer, ($28).
Lastly, to ensure the makeup stayed in place on the runway, he swept Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder, ($35) over the entire face.
Cheeks: Fashion-forward cheeks
In order to create the exaggerated cheek look, Matin applied Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Stick Face Colour in Bronze Glow, ($32) to the tops of the cheeks and around the eyes.
On top of the Bronze Glow, he applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Rosebud, ($25) outside the eye, on the temple, brow bone, in the crease of the eye, lightly under the lash line and high on the cheek bones, steering clear of the apples of the cheeks.
He then used Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander, ($25) under the eye, in the inner rim and on the cheeks, to soften them.
Lastly, to highlight the cheeks, Matin brushed Laura Mercier Pearl Glow Veil, part of the Bonne Mine Palette, ($48), over the lid, the brow bone and high on the cheekbones.
Eyes: Defined brown eyes
First, Matin applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Cocoa, ($28) at the lash line, blending it up and out and also around the bottom of the eye.
He then swept Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Hot Chocolate ($24), a Sephora exclusive, on top of the lids, adding the shadow to the outer corner of the eye and emphasizing the line of the eye to frame it.
For the final touch of glamour, he added Laura Mercier Faux Lash Macara in Black, ($25) and filled in the models’ brows to create a strong brow.
Lips: Soft, rosy lips
To complete the look, Matin applied a layer of Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Bare Baby ($25) as a base.
He then topped the lips with Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Rose Petal, ($26), focusing on the middle of the lips and applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander, ($25) on the sides and outer corner of the lips.”
Pamella Roland’s Spring 2015 Hair — Ponytails For New York Fashion Week
Ted told HollywoodLife.com: “When you see this style from the front, it looks shiny and sleek, but the contrasting coiffed texture in the back amps up the edge-factor and makes it more modern. Most importantly, it complements the beautiful designs and can be easily translated from the runway to your way.”
He told us backstage that he loves hair accessories and dyed white cord pink and tied into knots around the base of the model’s ponytails.
Get the look:
“Step 1: Smooth and Sleek
First, Ted created a deep center part, starting at the forehead and continuing to the crown of the head. He then applied L’Oreal Professionnel Gelée Cashmere ($20) to the front of the hair, with L’Oreal Professionnel Texture Expert Perfect Shimmer Shine Illuminating Mist ($23) for added high shine.
Next, he smoothed it using the Infiniti Pro by Conair 3Q (119.99). Ted said: “Sleek looks at Fashion Week can be risky because models have already had their hair styled at previous shows. You never know what you are going to be working with and you have limited time for styling. The Infiniti Pro by Conair 3Q is critical for this look because it is powerful, and allows me to create ultra-smooth looks quickly, without damaging the models’ hair.”
Step 2: Unexpected Chic Ponytail:
Ted tucked the smooth hair behind the ears and secured at the nape of the neck with an elastic. Before securing, Ted added extensions to the ponytail for a fuller, longer look.
He then used his fingers to tease hair and increase volume on the lower half of the head. For added texture, Ted used L’Oreal Professionnel Fresh Dust Hair Powder ($19), which gives the bottom section a different feel than the top and adds a slightly lighter look, reminiscent of the white powdered faces of Geishas.”
