Runway to Realway: Backstage at Charlotte Ronson Fall 2010

Trends can be intimidating, especially during Fashion Week- not only are the models 16 year old goddesses, but they have the best in makeup, hair, and design backstage dressing them up like dolls. How can we compete?

Thankfully, as we jet from backstage to backstage this season, we keep hearing the same phrases used over and over again: clean, fresh, organic, and “like they did it themselves”. Good news for us, who don’t have the beauty team following us around all day ( a girl can dream!)

For the face, Sephora PRO artist Gilbert Soliz told us that Charlotte wanted
the girls to look as if  they’d done their own faces. The skin was
kept dewy using Make Up For Ever Face and Body Liquid
, and then sculpted with taupe powder to lift the face. The eyes
were then given a monochromatic brown smokey look using Makeup
For Ever Aqua Eyes
in Pearly Brown. The shadow was applied to the lid and then winged
out with a brush, followed by DiorShow mascara enhance lashes. The eyebrows were kept natural and only lightly groomed, and lips were left nude, touched only by clear
balm to enhance (Sephora FACE Very Sexy Nourishing Lip Balm
SPF 15

“decadence”. The hair was prepped with a
lightweight mousse (Tresemme 24hr Body), and then
dried with a round brush for volume before being sectioned off and
wrapped lightly around a barrel iron. The curls were then finger combed to loosen the wave, and spritzed
with a dry shampoo (Tresemme Fresh Start) to absorb leftover styling products.
