Kate Spade always brings a fun and feminine flair to Fashion Week and the Fall 2015 presentation on Feb. 13 was no different.
The inspiration for the hair and makeup at Kate Spade‘s Fall 2015 presentation was a woman walking through the cold forest towards her cozy log cabin. The result? Flushed cheeks and berry lips. Get the exact look below.
Kate Spade’s Fashion Week — Girly Hair & Makeup For Fall 2015
Hair was styled by head stylist Bob Recine for Fekkai.
He told me backstage: “The hair is a center part, straight but ruffled. To get the look, apply mousse — Fekkai Full Blown Volume Styling Whip — to dry hair and blow dry.
The look is like when you pull your hat off after coming inside. Use the Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Crème (the amount you would use on a toothbrush) for shiny and healthy strands.”
At the end, Bob says he “used his hands to muss up hair for natural static.”
The makeup, by Lyne Desnoyers using MAC Cosmetics, was inspired by a “long winter walk…but a chic one!”
For the flushed cheeks, Lyne actually used the new Tailored To Tease Retro Matte Lipstick. She applied to her hand, then used a fan brush to lightly buff on the apples of cheeks.
For the pretty lips, Lyne used “Dare You” painted on the center and “blended softly outwards.”
Kate Spade’s Runway — Gorgeous Burgundy Nails
Lead Manicurist Deborah Lippmann told HollywoodLife.com:
“The ever-stylish Kate Spade girl setting out on a gorgeous brisk walk destined for a cozy place set the tone for the collection this season.
To capture the essence of this scenic beauty, I layered two shades to create a deep warm red that enhances the overall styling. It’s not too red and not too brown, but the perfect scintillating color that you can’t say no to, just like a red velvet cupcake.”
She told us backstage: “You can create something new from what you have. It’s better to layer them, rather than mixing, to make sure every nail looks the same.”
After prepping the nails, Deborah applied one coat of Knock On Wood (Barneys NY Exclusive Collection), a warm brown tone. Then, she layered on one coat of My Old Flame, a classic true red, waiting 2 minutes between each coat.
After another 2 minutes, she used one coat of Gel Lab Top Coat to seal the nails and prevent chipping. The final touch was a few quick dry drops — the new The Wait Is Over.
