Frederic Fekkai @ Marchesa

The Look

“The Marchesa collection is always breathtaking and elegant; it is exhilarating to create a red carpet look that matches the ultimate glamour and sophistication of the clothing” – Frederic Fekkai

Get the Look

Renato Campora, lead stylist for Frédéric Fekkai, created an ultra shiny and striking look for the Marchesa Spring 2010 show. Campora mixed the Fekkai COIFF™ Extra Control Styling Gel with the Fekkai COIFF™ Strong Hold Volume Mousse to slick hair into a ponytail in the middle of the back of the head. He then wrapped the ponytail into a tight bun. The look was completed with Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream for added shine and brilliance.

For the holidays, Sylvie and Olivia have created three beautiful and unique products encased in small compacts, delicately etched with Chantecaille’s signature rose in a rose-gold metallic finish. The collection includes a sheer pressed powder, a luminous highlighter and a rose lip gloss.

Voile de Rose Poudre Délicate ($36.00)

A soothing and intensely hydrating lip gloss that nurtures lips all day long. This light but supremely moisturizing formula is packed with Aloe and Chamomile to calm, Vitamin E and Rice bran to hydrate and protect and Ceramides and Ginko Biloba to condition and rebuild.

Introducing a new and innovative formula with a unique mix of pigment and pearl for the most flattering and gentle metallic pearl effect.

Shiseido @ Narciso Rodriguez

NYFW S/S '10 Narciso Rodriguez

The Look

“Cool Sheik”, “Reverse Makeup”, “Dirty and Smudged”

Get the Look

  • Skin: The models skin was left as pure as possible, using very light foundation where needed.
  • Eyes: Dick first applied a makeup remover around the eyes with a fluffy brush to give a wet base and slightly glossy effect around the eyes. He then blended two shades of the Luminizing Satin Eye Colors from the Fall 2009 Collection, Squirrel (BR303) and Cavern (BR708). He applied the combination of shadows around the eyes (on top and bottom), right into the lashlines. He then used this color on the lids to create “dirty looking eyes.” No mascara or liner is used.
  • Lips: To create a matte lip, Dick blended two shades from the new Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte line from the Spring 2010 collection. Whisper (RD722) and Wink (BR323) were combined to create a flat mauve color, ultimately yielding “smudgy lips”.
