Look Like A Model: Backstage At Elise Overland and Rebecca Minkoff
February 16, 2011
With Fashion Week in full gear, it seems that one designer after the next has been sending inspiring hair and makeup looks down the runway. But we have to say, in terms of tresses, we especially loved the soft, tousled waves at Rebecca Minkoff. To achieve the look, Ouidad stylists used some of these key products.
Stylists worked Ouidad’s PlayCurl Volumizing Foam ($22) through models’ hair, giving it a needed boost so that curls would take hold.
After loosening the curls, Ouidad Styling Mist Setting & Holding Spray ($15) was applied to hold waves in place, while also adding long-lasting shine. Voila: instant bedhead.
a sea of bold lips, the muted makeup at Elise Overland’s Fall 2011 show caught our eye. The models, who stood on an ice rink, looked (fittingly) like snow queens, with clean skin, highlighted cheekbones, and pale lips. Makeup artist Napoleon Perdis was the man behind the look, which is easy to DIY with the below.
Get airbrushed-looking skin like the models at Elise Overland with Napoleon Perdis Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation ($49), which also reduces fine lines and wrinkles. We’ll take two.
With such a neutral look, it’s easy for eyes to get lost. Define them with Napoleon Perdis Long Black Mascara ($22), which contains a built-in curler to make lashes super fluttery.
Get glowing like Overland’s models with NP Set Liquid Veil Makeup ($14), a highlighter that adds sheen to lips, eyes, and cheekbones.
