#NYFW Backstage Beauty: Rebecca Minkoff S/S 2014

Pictures of Bianca Jagger in Mexico and Frida Kahlo lead to the inspiration for Rebecca Minkoff's S/S 2014 collection. She channeled this inspiration by creating feminine garments in bold print florals, embroidery, and bright colors. This influence was literally seen from head to toe, from the criss-cross headband braid by TRESemme to the skull nail art by Essie.

Make-Up by Stila Cosmetics:

Brows: Stay All Day Waterproof Color
Eyes: Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner – Deep Burgundy (available Spring 14), Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Dark Brown, Kajal Eye Liner in Tigers Eye, and In The Know Shadow Palette.
Lip & Cheek: Convertible Color Lip & Cheek in Camellia

Surprisingly, start with mascara. The mascara will open up your eyes and giving you a point where you can stop your cat eye. For the perfect cat-eye, start with lightly getting tracing the outline of your cat eye by using a liquid eyeliner. Once you have your outline then you can darken the cat eye. Use a base eyeliner under the eye to connect with the top of your cat eye line. Then go over the bottom base eyeliner with the smudge eyeliner. To make a dramatic and undone look take a small eye brush and start to smudge under the eye.

Hair by TRESemme:

TRESemme 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse
TRESemme 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray
TRESemme Fresh Start Color Care Dry Shampoo

Use the TRESemme 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse to pre damp your hair and then rough dry. Create a deep part from the hairline to the center of the nape. Create three ponytails and braid each of these ponytails. Tease each of these ponytails to create a rough effect, lightly spray TRESemme 24 Hour Body Spray.  Wrap braids around the top of the head to create a crown effect. Tuck the ends of the braids under and bobby pin them into place. For an undone look, finish with TRESemme Fresh Start Care Dry Shampoo.

Nails by Essie:

Base color: Tart Deco
To create Mexican art deco inspired skull nail arts Essie used black Licorice, white Blanc and blue Butler Please.
Top Coat: Good to Go
