Girls in Aspen at Charlotte Ronson - Fall 2012
This season, Charlotte Ronson's collection went in a whole other direction from the designer's past collections which were more bohemian and grungy. This time around, the overall look had a more glamorous, '70s feel to it. The inspiration: "girl in Aspen skiing."
Gilbert for Sephora PRO created a polished look with lavender eyes, a bold pout and flawless skin. "We did this soft wash of lavender on the eye using the Charlotte Ronson All Eye Need Eye Shadow Palette in Dani." He started with the light purple on the lid and a darker shade in the crease with just a touch of mascara. The strong red/orange lip was a blend of two Sephora Collection Lip Attitude Glamour Lipsticks: Red Flirt and Rosy Frivol. "You get ultimate precision when you use a lip brush," he added.
Jeanie Syfu for Tresemme kept the hair simple and refined with a sleek ponytail. She started by blow drying the hair back into a ponytail (right above the nape) and applied leave-in conditioner from roots to end to "mend all the fly aways and split ends." To maintain the smooth finish, she added Tresemme Mega Firm Control Gel with a color brush around the hairline and combed it back with a fine tooth comb. "The fine tooth comb will make it very seamless, so it's perfect and flat." She left a few baby hairs on the sides of the ears so the hair looks "nice and wind blown when the models walk down the runway." Some of the models also wore tight leather hats (almost like swim caps with longer sides over the ears), so the pony tail just peeked through the back.
Nail artist Fleury Rose created a custom Color Club shade of eggplant for the nails (the color matched a specific accessory from Charlotte's collection). She then used a black striper polish to draw a thin line at the tips of the nails which resulted in a cool, youthful take on the plain French manicure - perfect for the Charlotte Ronson girl.
