Mara Hoffman Takes a Global Twist at 2012 Miami Swim

Mara Hoffman Hair and Makeup Looks at the 2012 Miami Swim Show

Mara Hoffman is known for her colorful printed swimwear. At Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2012 show in Miami, models walked the runway in beauty looks to complement the designer's global-chic aesthetic. Tousled, double-braided hairstyles, darkly lined eyes, and bright orange forehead markings made for a striking combination.

Hair:
Tresemmé stylist Elsa Canedo first spritzed on the brand's Curl Activator Spray. Once dry, Canedo used a curling iron all over and let hair set. Next, she backcombed to create a purposely undone effect, using Fresh Start Dry Shampoo for texture. Hair was then parted down the middle; each side formed into French braids that cascaded down into fishtails toward the end.

Makeup:
Make Up For Ever makeup artist Lottie began by applying the brand's HD Invisible Cover foundation on models' skin. Cheeks got a flush with Microfinish blush and Mat Bronze, while their foreheads received a smudge of Wet Make-Up in neon orange. "It's a mixture between a blessing and a tribal marking," explained Lottie. "For the rest of the face, we used black eyeliner [Kohl pencil in #1K] and then a clear, milky-colored gloss [Glossy Full Couleur in #10]."
