Rag & Bone
Revlon’s global artistic director Gucci Westman was at Rag & Bone yesterday, ready to create a look that would go hand in hand with the Eskimo-inspired collection. “This look is about a nomadic traveler. She’s an effortless Eskimo,” says Westman.
On the eyes, Westman used the following Revlon products: Illuminance Creme Shadow in Wild Orchids, Matte Eyeshadow in Rich Sable, Luxurious Color Eyeliner in Black Velvet, ColorStay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black, and Smoky Crayon in Black Smoke.
On the lips, Westman used Gucci Westman for Revlon Lip Palette in Boardeaux In The Snow, and on the face, Westman created a “windswept” look with Revlon Cream Blush in Berry Flirtatious.
To finish the look, a fresh coat of Revlon Nail Enamel in Steel Her Heart was applied to nails by nail artist Jin Soon Choi.
CND’s Kristina Estabrooks was at Ruffian yesterday, rady to create lavish “tuxedo” manicures for the black tie runway and menswear-inspired collection.
To create the look, Estabrooks painted a layer of CND’s Asphalt on as a base. Then, she used CND’s Ice Blue Shimmer and Violet Shimmer to create a metallic violet look. To create the detail of the tuxedo coat and buttons, Estabrooks used CND’s Blackjack. To finish, a layer of CND’s Super Shiney Top Coat was used, which created a glossy look.
MAC’s Diane Kendal and CND’s Roxanne Valinoti were on hand at Jason Wu yesterday. Their look? Opuelence, and plenty of it—think: hair brushed in genuine gold, ruby-red and gold-toned nails, and lusciously smoky eyes.
To start her look, Kendal used MAC’s Marine Ultra Eye Pencil on the crease and lower lash line of each eye. Then, she blended MAC’s Thru The Night Eyeshadow outward and MAC’s Carbon Eyeshadow downward. To finish, she applied a liberal helping of MAC’s Gold Glitter on the center of each lid, applied MAC’s Blacktrack Fluidline on the top lash line, and then brushed lashes with MAC’s Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara.
On the lips, Kendal used MAC Cream Color Base in Shell to create a pearlescent color.
To create gilded burgundy manicures, Valinoti used a layer of CND’s Dark Ruby and a layer of CND’s Bloodline. Then, she gilded each nail with smile lines of CND’s Gold Chrome.
