Modern Beauty at J. Mendel Spring 2013
"The [makeup] look actually changed quite a bit," said Gucci Westman for Revlon, "but I think it's really nice. Originally we were going to do a strong color on the eyes, and then Gilles called me and said, 'Can you just make the girls beautiful, I trust you, you dont have to do a test or anything, just make them beautiful.' " So she showed up and created the look on a whim. It's a soft smoky eye with a black-brown eye shadow on the top and bottom lids with a brown liner on the inner rims and mascara. There's a touch of bronzer on the cheeks and a glossy lip. "I feel like I would definitely wear his clothes, and I would definitely wear my makeup like this," Gucci said. "It's the girl you want to be."
Jin Soon Choi for Revlon was on the nails, where the pop of color was featured on the toes. "Everybody is wearing Trade Winds on the fingers," she said. "And for toes, we used three different colors. They wanted to have more fun on the toes, so we used a purple, Impulsive, coral red, Fearless, and a pink with lavender shimmer, Angelic."
Orlando Pita with Phyto and T3 on Beauty.com created the modern take on waves. First, he spritzed Phytovolume Actif at the roots and blow dried the hair using the new T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Hair Dryer with a round brush. He parted the hair down the center and used Phyto 7 Daily Hydrating Botanical Cream to create the smooth finish at the crown. To create the soft waves in the mid-lengths of the hair, Orlando used the T3 SinglePass Straightening & Styling Iron.
