SEEN AT:
BCBGMAXAZRIA
 
To compliment the crisp, clean style at BCBG, Laurent Philippon for Bumble and bumble wanted hair to “have an angelic feel” and “soft texture with a natural wave”.
 
GET THE LOOK:
Shampoo and condition hair like normal and then lightly blow dry without putting in any styling products. Next, use a medium sized barrel curling iron, angling the barrel so that it’s parallel, not perpendicular to your face (this helps form a loose, natural-looking shape). Then piece-out sections with a little Bumble and bumble Semisumo “to loosen the curls and created a lived-in look” and complete the look with a touch of Bumble and bumble Dryspun Finish.

SEEN AT:
Cushnie Et Ochs
 
Although an intense eye is often a fall staple, while spring has a lighter touch, Charlotte Tilbury for M.A.C Cosmetics wanted to impart a “modern, spring-like smoky eye” to the stark and neutral ultra sexy form-fitting dresses in neutral (think nude, white, gray, and black) as well as bold silky hues (like vibrant purple).
 
GET THE LOOK:
To create the sultry eye effect seen on the Cushnie Et Ochs runway, Tilbury curled lashes and then used M.A.C Cosmetics Sparkle Shadow Nightlight (available in Spring/Summer 2014) from lid to brow as well as under the lower lashline, followed by purple M.A.C Cosmetics Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Permaplumm the upper and lower waterlines of eyes.

To offset the mix of textures, fabrics and abundance of geometric shapes that lent to an Afro-Cuban vibe, nails were painted in one of three vivid shades (coral, green or vibrant blue) and balanced out with thin, black horizontal and vertical lines.
 
GET THE LOOK:
Shape and clean nails, then apply a base coat and two coats of either Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Carnivale (Coral), Mojito (Green) and Batbano Blue (Blue), all of which are limited edition shades out March 2014, as Sally Hansen Nail Ambassador and celebrity manicurist Tracylee did backstage. Then using a super thin paintbrush (or skinny eyeliner brush), dip the tip into a black (or super dark) polish and depending on the length of your nails, draw two to three horizontal and vertical lines across each nail—or on just one accent nail to play down the look.
