Backstage beauty: Rebecca Taylor spring 2011

1.bmpBackstage at Rebecca Taylor’s Spring 2011 collection, the look was a bit ’70s, inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s ladies, but more undone. The girls were made to look like they partied last night, but still fresh and modern.

The face was intense with smoldering coppers, while the hair complemented the relaxed feel of the clothing. Here are some details on how the looks were created:

Makeup: Sil Bruinsma for MAC Cosmetics used intense copper powder
shadow on the center of the lids, bringing it around and under to bottom lid as well. Eyes were rimmed with
black eye kohl and then given multiple coats of black mascara. Charred Red lipstick was used as a stain on the lips, applied with the fingers.

Hair: Cutler’s Dai Michishita backcombed hair and then then flat-ironed to seal texture. After brushing the hair put, Dai pulled it a high topknot, leaving pieces of hair
loose at the hairline.

Nails: Fingernails were coated with OPI polish in I’m Suzi And I’m A Chocoholic, and toes were painted with Barefoot in Barcelona.
