#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


TIPS:
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




TIPS:
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
