Rebecca Minkoff's Beauty Look Was a Battle of the Sexes

Feb 7 2014 - 1:48pm

With a collection that toyed so effortlessly with masculine and feminine silhouettes, it was only natural that the beauty look at Rebecca Minkoff [1]'s Fall 2014 show would also have influences from both sexes. Hair by Jeanie Syfu for Tresemmé focused on a sleek blowout that was then deconstructed and pulled into a low ponytail. Wispy pieces around the face added a touch of whimsy. If models' hair was too short for a pony, Syfu kept the hair sleek and straight and the blowout intact.

Lips were the main draw of the beauty look. Lead makeup artist Sarah Lucero for Stila [2] layered on Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lip Color in Amore [3] ($22) for a statement pout and then added on bold brows. To offset any masculinity, models' skin was kept flawless and glowing, with pink cheeks and a touch of rose on the eyelids.

Nails also mixed the masculine with the feminine, starting with two coats of Essie Bahama Mama [4] ($9) and then a swipe of Essie Midnight Cami [5] ($9) for a french tip. "Never skip your base coat, especially when you're using a red," lead manicurist Michelle Saunders for Essie [6] said. "It will keep your color from bleeding into your cuticle."
