Frederic Fekkai @ Altuzarra S/S 2012

Paul Hanlon created a hair style with a young and personalized look to match Altuzarra’s contemporary collection. The style was casual and beautifully chic, giving each look a touch of individuality and character.

Beauty Breakdown

Apply Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip to the top two inches of wet hair, creating volume and lift. Create a strong right side part, bringing the front of the hair all the way to the left side of the head, and slightly over the left side of the face. Blow-dry the hair straight using a large round brush. Spray the hair with Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist to create a glossy shine and secure any stray hairs. Next, brush through the hair with hands, to give the hair a more tousled look. Next, apply Fekkai Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Crème from the mid section of the hair all the way to the bottom of the hair. To secure the look, spray Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hair Spray throughout the hair.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Black Russian Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Black Russian Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as “layers of ruby red flecks suspended in black polish.”  This shade was recently voted to be brought back, which is a very cool concept on its own. I originally reviewed this shade here but thought I’d check out the rereleased version for comparison.

“It’s the ideal of the iconic American cowboy gone multi-cultural. The color story came from India, inspired by the spice market — but with a cowboy flair,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul. “Because the collection is so colorful, I wanted to focus on a classic, strong brow. I kept the face natural, with a little pink on the cheek for healthy color. On the eyes, I focused on contouring to show strength and attitude, a cowboy attitude that is,” said makeup artist Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics.
