New York Fashion Week Fall 2009 – Vena Cava

Vena Cava | Ted Gibson and Vincent Longo for

MAKEUP – To contrast the dark and muted hues in Vena Cava’s fall collection, Vincent Longo wanted to create a bright eye that popped. For a burst of excitement, he applied a thick orange eye liner followed by a black liner on top to provide depth and definition for the lashes. Then, he thickened and contoured the brows to frame the models’ faces, and finished the look with a natural lip. Overall the complexion was matte and porcelain.

HAIR – Gibson wanted the hair to look like the models’ had gone out dancing the night before and then woke up the next morning, effortlessly slicking back the sides with gel to create a slightly messy but cool rocker chic style. Ted used Ted Gibson Fix It to gel the sides, and then created texture in the back of the hair with Ted Gibson Tame It. He finished the look off with Beautiful Hold hairspray.

NAILS – Nonie mixed up a vibrant hunter green polish which nicely complimented Vena Cava’s fall collection and the bright orange eyes. The shade is called British Racing Green and will launch exclusively on in the fall.
