Temptu @ Max Azria

The Look

For Spring 2010, Max Azria introduced a clean and sleek collection of elegance that incorporated neutral, solid colors with post-modern touches. Lisa Butler’s approach to the makeup was to create a soft, subdued, and fresh look to complement the collection’s uncomplicated sophistication, “We wanted the girls to look as fresh and natural as possible,” said Butler.

Get the Look

To achieve this level of minimalistic elegance, Butler used the TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup System, with the AIR Pod Highlighter in Champagne to add light and sheer accents underneath the brow bone, around the sides of the eyes, on top of the cheeks, and on the lips with a touch of clear mascara to lift the eyebrows. The simplicity of this look saw no other additional makeup. “Using airbrushing as an application technique really pulled the essence of natural beauty together,” said Butler. “It provides light, natural-looking coverage while adding dimension to the face.”

Wella @ Thakoon

Thakoon’s spring collection is described as “warrior-surf” and reflects a hard/soft, natural/artificial dichotomy with organic construction or armoring of the body, contrasting with patterns cut around the body as a canvas with soft draping. The palette can be described as muted watercolors with an array of nudes, blues, pinks and aquas.

The Look

To achieve this “sumo wrestler meets surfer” inspired look, Thakoon Panichgul, Eugene Souleiman, and Eva Scrivo collaborated for a finished style that demonstrates the contrast between tight and loose elements, which the collection encapsulates. A sleek, tight-to-the-head “seventh samurai” ponytail is sculpted on the top half, while leaving out loose, textured ends in a knot. Free-flowing, beachy waves left down in back, allows the look to exude a variety of contradictory elements that don’t blend, but balance. Colored extensions add dimension and life to help form the overall shape.

Hair Styling by: Eugene Souleiman, Global Creative Director, Wella Professionals
Hair Color by: Eva Scrivo and the Wella Professionals team
Hair products supplied by: Wella System Professional

Get the Look

  • Blowdry the hair back and away from the face.
  • Brush all the hair from ear to ear back and into a tight pony tail.
  • Apply Wella System Professional Supermousse to the pony for a sleek, satin finish.
  • Incorporate the hair from the center of the nape of the neck, in a 2 inch section up to the pony.
  • Bind the hair in the pony with 1/2 inch thick black elastic or ribbon, folding it back on itself to create a knot of hair.
  • Smooth a silicone gloss into hands and smooth over the hair that has been bound for a sleek finish.
  • Add colored extensions to the hair that is left out of the bind, to add length and fullness, as well as color depth.
  • Then spray this hair with Wella High Hair Ocean Spritz and diffuse for a beachy texture.

Shiseido @ Zero + Maria Cornejo

The Look

“Leftover makeup” look and “touch of sun.”

Get the Look

  • Cheeks: Dick used the Luminizing Satin Face Color Tea Rose (RS302) from the Spring 2010 Collection and applied on the models’ bare skin, just on the cheeks and nose to give a sun-kissed look.
  • Eyes: Dick lined the top and bottom lash line with the Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Brown (BR602) from the 2009 Fall Makeup Collection. To give the look a little bit of slip, he applied a dab of the Accentuating Color Stick in Champagne Flush (S3) underneath the eyes. After curling the lashes, Dick applied a touch of the Perfect Mascara in Black (BK901) from the Fall 2009 Makeup Collection. Dick used the Natural Eyebrow Pencil from the Fall 2009 Makeup Collection if the eyebrows were very light and brushed up the hairs simultaneously.
  • Lips: Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer Lipstick in Pout (RS326) from the Spring 2010 Collection was applied like a lip liner and patted to fill in the rest of the lip to create a soft, translucent lip.

Avon @ Charlotte Ronson

Avon Advance Techniques lead stylists Allen Ruiz together with designer, Charlotte Ronson, created the hair look for the Spring 2010 show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

The Look

Inspiration for the Look: The look mirrors the Charlotte Ronson collection, which is inspired by a remake of 80’s style. The hair was created to evoke a fresh, young wispy look and a “just walked out of dance class at Julliard” look to play off her fabrics and bold designs.

Get the Look

  • Step 1: Prep the hair from root to tip with Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray to enhance natural shine and create volume.
  • Step 2: Using the Advance Techniques Paddle Brush and hair dryer, distribute the Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray by sectioning off the hair and blow-drying to ensure that there is a natural, soft texture.
  • Step 3: Next, gather the hair tight to form a ponytail at the back crown of the head and secure with a ponytail holder keeping all sides flat.
  • Step 4: Holding hair at the base of the ponytail, twist the hair firmly in one direction to form a kink in to a spiral. Secure with bobby pins.
  • Step 5: On the sides, using the little hairs “muse” the wispy hairs to play up the natural texture.
  • Step 6: Lightly spray Advance Techniques Hair Spray to complete the style and hold in place.
