Kate Spade Runway — Graphic Black & White Manis
Lead Manicurist Deborah Lippmann for deborah lippmann tells HollywoodLife.com about the inspiration:
“Taking a cue from Deborah’s [Lloyd, CCO of Kate Spade] theme of ‘fresh starts, taking chances and feeling that anything is possible,’ I set about complementing the poppy and graphic colors and patterns featured throughout the collection with a strikingly modern nail. A jet-black horizontal stripe popped against a crisp, white nail plate, creating its own graphic moment.”
Here’s the exact how to:
“Step 1: Deborah contoured natural nails into a short, rounded shape using her Smooth Operator 4-Way Nail Buffer.
Step 2: To prep the nail plate, she exfoliated the cuticle with Cuticle Remover and cleansed the nails with 2-Second Nail Primer.
Step 3: For the base, Deborah applied a coat of Gel Lab Base Coat and allowed 2 minutes of drying time prior to lacquer application.
Step 4: Deborah then applied two coats of Amazing Grace, a pure white crème, waiting 2 minutes between coats.
Step 5: Using a striping brush, she painted a thin line of Fade To Black — a jet-black lacquer reminiscent of a vinyl record – horizontally, straight across the nail, beginning about one quarter from the tip/free edge.
*When recreating this look, black Striping Tape can also be used.
Step 6: After a full 5 minutes of dry time, Gel Lab Top Coat was carefully applied, wary of the crisp line.
Step 7: For added hydration, The Cure and Rich Girl SPF 25 Hand Cream were applied to the cuticles and hands, respectively.
On the toes, Deborah used Gel Lab Base Coat, two coats of Amazing Grace, a pure white crème, and sealed the look with Gel Lab Top Coat.”
Kate Spade Makeup — SS15 By MAC
The look was a matte, graphic eyeliner against “radiant, feminine skin,” and lead by makeup artist Lyne Desnoyers.
Lyne told HollywoodLife.com backstage that their is an “elongated look on the eye.” Skin looks fresh, as if it’s just been moisturized.
To get the look, use Fluidline in Blacktrack on the upper lash line for thick definition. Two good coats of Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash finished off the eye look.
Easy, Natural Hair By Garnier
Lead hairstylist Tommy Buckett told HollywoodLife.com the hair was “easy, natural and chic.” Using Garnier products, he “worked with the model’s natural texture. No extensions. We wanted each girl to look like themselves. It’s a light, easy, cool look. We wanted the hair to feel real.”
Here’s the how to:
“Step 1: Use a curling iron wand to create soft and natural waves in the hair. Apply Deconstructed Texture Tease Dry Touch Finish Spray from the root to the mid-shaft for tousled airy fullness
Step 2: Spritz Deconstructed Beach Chic Texturizing Spray from the mid-shaft to the ends for touchable control and loose textured waves
Step 3: Rub Deconstructed Pixie Play Crafting Cream on the ends to define them and give a piecey effect. .
Step 4: Flip head and spray underneath with Deconstructed Texture Tease Dry Touch Finish Spray one final time to complete the look.”
