Vena Cava | Ted Gibson and Vincent Longo for Beauty.com

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 Beauty.com in the fall.

Donna Karan | Charlotte Tilbury

Inspiration: “The look is inspired by 1930’s photographs – sepia tone shading but with a slick gloss on the eyes to make it modern.”

Eyes: Dusk cream colour base – blended through crease, over lids and along lower lash line to create shading and depth. Copper Walnut PRO Gloss mixed with a bit of Reflects Gold – applied from lid to brow for a wet look on the eyes.

Face: Fast Play lipstick – blended onto the apples of the cheeks. Pearl cream colour base – swept over cheek bone, bridge of nose, and bow of lips to highlight.

Lips: Half and half lipstick – lightly patted onto the lips.

Miss Sixty | Ward Stegerhoek (Hair)

International celebrity stylist Ward Stegerhoek will be heading up the Living Proof team to design the look – Rocker Chic. “Ward wanted body but No Frizz. Funky yet fashionable”, Ward used the NO FRIZZ Wave-Shaping, Curl-Defining Styling Spray to style the hair and then used the NO FRIZZ Wave-Shaping, Curl-Defining Styling Cream to twist the hair and make it appear rough and stringy.

NO FRIZZ Wave-Shaping, Curl-Defining Styling Spray: No Frizz molecule with a holding polymer that holds the curl in place. NO FRIZZ Wave-Shaping, Curl-Defining Styling Spray enhances natural waves and curls with structure and shine.

NO FRIZZ Wave-Shaping, Curl-Defining Styling Cream: The cream formula provides optimum frizz-reduction as well as added conditioning benefits, yet doesn’t leave hair feeling greasy or heavy.

Hervé Léger | Diane Kendal

Inspiration: For Fall 2009, Hervé Léger drums to the beat of an urban tribe with a gradient palette of earth tones polished by rich shades of deep ebony. Makeup artist Diane Kendal drew inspiration from Helmut Newton photographs, using the concept of a brave warrior – strong and fierce. “The collection is very hard and sculpted so we wanted to keep the skin neutral and show strength through the eyebrows,” said Diane.

Look: The focus was a very strong eyebrow with glowy skin, communicating strength without being too bold. “We created very fresh, dewy skin by using the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. It really allowed the skin’s natural highlights to shine through,” said Diane.

Face: Use NARSskin Hydrating Moisture Cream to moisturize. Apply NARS Concealer as needed, to cover any imperfections. Use a minimal amount of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (NEW for Fall 2009) to even skin tone

Eyes: Brush brows to define natural shape. With NARS Single Eyeshadow in Bali, fill in brows. Brush again for even, natural look. Apply gentle dusting of NARS Single Eyeshadow in Sophia to entire lid, blending up towards brows for natural shading. Curl lashes with NARS Eyelash Curler

Lips: Apply NARS Lip Therapy Treatment in Rain to entire lip. Use NARS Concealer over Rain to mute color
