NYFW S/S '10 United Bamboo

Shiseido @ United Bamboo

Dick Page, Shiseido’s Artistic Director, created the look at United Bamboo!

Get the Look

  • Face: Dick lightly applied Shiseido Makeup Dual Balancing Foundation where needed. He then applied a Translucent Loose Powder over the entire face to create a smooth, matte surface. He then dusted the new Luminizing Satin Face Color in High Beam White (WT905) and Soft Beam Gold (BE206) under the eyes and cheeks, and applied more Soft Beam Gold contouring the cheeks.
  • Eyes: Dick used the Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Brown (BR602) to the upper and lower lash lines, blending with a brush. To give a softer look, he applied the Luminizing Satin Eye Color in Cavern (BR708) from the Fall 2009 Makeup Collection over the Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil.
  • Lips: Lips were prepped with Aquafor and a dab of foundation to soften the pink of the lips. Next, the new Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte Lipstick in Whisper (RD722) from the Spring 2010 Makeup Collection was applied like a lip liner and patted to fill in the rest of the lip.

ION Studio @ Jeremy Laing

The Look

Creating a super sleek, slicked back look with a wet and textured finish that was rolled up in the back, Marco of ION Studio used only three Davines products on the model’s hair to achieve the look. He described the hair as “that moment when you dunk your head back in the pool and then come right up. We rolled under the back of the hair creating the shape of a biker’s helmet.”

Get the Look

Marco first brushed in an almost excessive amount of Davines Defining Creative Moulding Foam – an alcohol-free foam used to mould, sculpt and set hair with strong memory for all day hold and control. He then rolled under the hair in the back and used pins to set it in place. Next, Marco used the Davines For Wizards #8 Quick Setting Hard Gel – formulated to provide strong structure and control with a soft sheen. Lastly, a light spray of Davines Defining Gloss, a lightweight, non-greasy spray, finished the look adding an extra touch of shine. All Davines products can be found on www.davines.com for salon locations.

Temptalia's Answer.

Drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. I’m terrible at it. I keep trying, and I use all the tricks I know, but I fail!
