It can be hard to bridge the gap between runway and real life, but the looks seen at Tracy Reese Spring 2016 are completely attainable. Read on to see how you can rock next season’s hair and makeup…right now!
Tracy Reese went with pretty, breezy looks for the Spring 2016 runway show during New York Fashion Week. Beautiful twisted buns and stained lips were the main looks. I spoke to the lead hair and makeup artists backstage and have the step-by-step instructions on how to pull off the looks at home!
The problem with runway looks at Fashion Week is that we can’t try them for a couple seasons — but not this time! The hair and makeup seen at Tracy Reese Spring 2016 can also work for fall.
I loved the pretty lip colors that the models wore, and Mary Kay lead makeup artist Deanna Melluso broke down the “dewy, bitten lip look” for HollywoodLife exclusively. “The idea is to get a luminous and ethereal look,” Deanna said. That means “lots of pigment on the lips”.
Deanna lightly dabbed Mary Kay True Dimensions® Lipstick in Sizzling Red on the models’ lips, bringing it just above the top lip line and blending with her fingers to create a stain. She then applied Mary Kay NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss in Pink Wink to the center of the lip. So easy — it’s a lip look that’s perfect for daytime or going out!
As for the hair, SheaMoisture lead hairstylist Bok-Hee worked closely with Tracy to come up with the looks. “The hair inspiration was a girl who’s been in the desert. She’s exhausted but looks beautiful. Her hair is pulled back and she’s looking beautifully tired,” Bok-Hee told us. The hairstyles featured tons of crazy frizz, but you can try the back of the no-fuss style for a more everyday look.
First, stylists backstage at Tracy Reese worked in SheaMoisture Weightless Styling Mousse throughout the models’ hair. To create the effortless chignon, they gently twisted the hair from the nape of the neck to the ends, then coiled it in a circle. Finally, the hair was twisted in a bun shape and secured with bobby pins. SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist was sprayed for the finishing touch. You can SHOP it here. How simple is that?
HollywoodLifers, would you try an easy twist or stained lip for autumn?
