The makeup at the BCBGMAXAZRIA Fall 2015 show during New York Fashion Week on Feb . 12 was flirty and feminine. It looks good on everyone, even a tough girl like Kristen Stewart!
BCBGMAXAZRIA always showcases a cool, modern girl, and the hair and makeup at the Feb. 12 show was the perfect combination of edgy and soft. Get the exact look here.
BCBGMAXAZRIA Runway — Bronze Skin & Berry Lips
I was backstage with head makeup artist Val Garland, who told me: “Think real outdoorsy — a traveler.”
For the berry stained lip, Val used Color True Lipstick in Plush Plum.
“The BCBG girl, she wants it easy but she wants to be polished.”
Hair was styled in a low, messy ponytail by Orlando Pita for Tresemme.
“The hair is like a scarf,” he told me backstage.
For most of the girls, he used the Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray for texture.
Though the end result is an effortless look, he said: “If [a model] has flat hair, you have to wrinkle it — it takes work believe it or not. The Sea Salt Spray is the most important thing. But I have girls who have curly hair and I used the Keratin Smooth on them. You have to alter the recipe for each girl’s hair.”
“There are lots of layers in this look. She’s traveling. It’s like she sleeps outdoors and doesn’t have a brush or comb. I wanted it to be piecey and have some flyways but not too many.”
Along with the texture in the hair, nails were textured too, using a matte top coat.
Miss Pop for OPI used two coats Samoan Sand followed by a matte top coat for a “soft cashmere sweater look. The topcoat gives it a different texture, like velvet.”
Get the look by using a base coat, then two coats of Samoan Sand, then a top coat, then the OPI Matte Top Coat.”
