“This collection is a graduation, of sorts, for me. I was inspired by these rocks and crystals that I’ve loved since I was a child – the texture, the metallics,” said designer Mandy Coon. “There is something so cool, and tough, about them but then the pleats in the collection add a touch of femininity.”

Makeup @ Erickson Beamon S/S 2012

More photos of the look by MAC – more like the step-by-step process, which I felt really privileged to watch as Chantal Miller (MAC Senior Artist) go through and demo for the other artists. They did a few different color combinations as well. I’m hoping to get more information about what they used in the next day or two!

Makeup, Hair, & Nails @ Erickson Beamon S/S 2012

WOW! The styling at Erickson Beamon was ridiculous–and I mean that in the best way! After seeing a lot of nude/neutral colors and looks at other shows, it’s such a breath of fresh air!

Nonie from Butter London for Beauty.com created pops of color on the nails using a neon orange, chartreuse, magenta (with a little touch of shimmer), and teal. The magenta and teal shades are definitely part of the spring/summer collection but she hasn’t decided whether the other two will come out (I totally voted for chartreuse!). They put a different color on each fingernail and toenail. The backstage area was so cramped, there were Butter London team members sitting on the floor and crunched in some really awkward-looking positions!

PHYTO for Beauty.com was styling the hair, which was sleek and twisted to wrap around each side and pulled into a ponytail. It was designed to be understated, because the makeup and nails were already so bold and vibrant.

MAC was responsible for the makeup. Chantal Miller, MAC Senior Artist, was the key artist for the makeup look, and she used a lot of PRO products, like Paintsticks, Glitters, and Pigments. The models also wore hand-cut paper lashes, which the models said were odd at first but after a few minutes, they were used to them. Lots and lots of glitter along the brow bone and underneath the eye, as well as a bold lip with more glitter patted on top. It was a superstar team back there; I also spotted Senior Artists Fatima, Romero, and Neil (UK) at work. (Fatima even told me she reads Temptalia, which was totally a “No way!” moment for me.)
