Wella Professionals @ Peter Som S/S 2012

This season Peter Som puts the “petal to the metal” with bright bold colors, patterns, and graphic prints juxtaposed with inherently feminine pieces and silhouettes. Because the collection is fit for the contemporary woman, the hair and make-up toughen it up with a little rock and roll edge to embody our modern day heroine’s fierce independence. Eugene describes the look as “kind of bad hair for a bad girl coming from a rich family.” The hair is slightly ‘60s inspired with a modern twist to make the look cooler without eliminating the glamour. With that, the hair features a deep side part with hair swooped to the opposite side of the face and tousled with texture that takes the finish out of the hair but maintains the style. Simply put, “it’s an undone ‘do approached in a classic way,” says Eugene.

Beauty Breakdown

  • Wash and condition hair using Wella Professionals Enrich shampoo, conditioner, and treatment to moisturize dry or damaged hair. This regimen strengthens hair against damage, while leaving hair shiny and smooth without weighing it down.
  • Prime wet hair for style with Velvet Amplifier, which prepares hair to maximize the benefits of styling products.
  • Blow out hair with a large round brush to create volume and movement, then lightly mist dry hair with Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray.
  • Create a deep side part with hair swooping over the side of the face and pin hair underneath to keep it in place.
  • Using a large barrel curling iron, set several curls in place with remaining hair down the center of the head for added lift.
  • Unravel the curls and tousle with your hand after a few sprays of Ocean Spritz to create a light, textured feel.

Stila for Beauty.com @ Alice + Olivia S/S 2012

Stila @ Alice + Olivia S/S 2012

Sarah Lucero, who is a Stila Pro Artist for Beauty.com, created the look at Alice + Olivia today. She used (all Stila products) One Step Correct, Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer, and Brighten & Correct Concealer on the face. For the eye, she used In the Garden Eyeshadow Palette, Mystic Eyeshadow, Electric Sparkle Eyeliner, and Aquamarine Jewel Eyeshadow. The models had to keep their eyes closed for a minute or so to allow the liquid eyeliner to dry. She used Gerbera Convertible Color on cheeks with Lillium Convertible Color on lips. To finish, she used Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black along the upper lash line, Glamoureyes Mascara on lashes, and Topaz Kajal Eyeliner on the lower lash line.

OCC Extravaganza Nail Lacquer

OCC Extravaganza Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “rich pink/coral with gold shimmer overlay.” It’s a pinked-coral with golden micro-shimmer strewn through the base. The gold almost leans green-gold in certain angles. In some ways it’s comparable to Zoya Rica, but Zoya’s has a much larger gold particle shimmer in it (almost glittery in comparison), so the overall look is quite different. SpaRitual Hope Springs Eternal is closer in color but has a silvery shimmer and metallic finish.

OCC’s formula is four-free (it does not include DBP, formaldehyde, toulene, or formaldehyde resin), and it wears a full week on me with minor tip wear (but no chipping). Extravaganza had great drying time; I felt like it dried down by the time I finished doing one coat on each nail! The opacity is nice, too; I used two coats for opaque color. The consistency was thin without being watery with even flow across the nail.
