Hervé Léger never skimps on sexy, and the beauty look for Spring 2014 wasn't any different. For the face, Val Garland for Sephora Pro used Marc Jacobs Omega Bronze Perfect Tan ($49) to create the perfect glow. For the hair, Laurent Philippon for Bumble and Bumble created texturized waves behind a sleek, wet look at the hairline. Watch now, and join us behind the scenes before the models took the runway.

Remember last Spring when you were cruising on a yacht, living the lap of luxury? Well, maybe that wasn't you, but it was the Hervé Léger woman. The Spring 2014 collection was created with a powerful woman in mind, and it was reflected in the hair and makeup.
Val Garland, lead makeup artist for Sephora Pro, harnessed the ideal bronze of Summer using the Marc Jacobs Omega Bronze Perfect Tan ($49). And while each model showcased an illuminated glow, the focus was on the foggy smoky eye. To re-create the look at home, Garland recommends using a black pencil topped with shadow to set.
The two-textured hair was also a vacation-ready style, with a wet look near the hairline and cascading waves in back. Lead hairstylist Laurent Philippon mixed a Bumble and Bumble mousse and gel for just the right amount of hold and shine. Finally, the nails were finished off with a few coats of OPI Barre My Soul ($8). This is one beauty look you can easily pull off between the pool and the disco.
The designs at Jill Stuart for Spring 2014 were meant to mimic a "rock star's girlfriend on holiday," and the name we continued to hear backstage was Kate Moss. Odile Gilbert styled the hair with an iron only at the midshaft, leaving the roots and ends straight. She then used Kérastase Powder Bluff ($36) to get bed-head texture and purposeful flyaways.
The makeup was an atypical smoky eye. Makeup artist Aaron de Mey used Givenchy's Kajal Eye Pencil in Magic Black ($24) and layered on mascara for the most intense black. What makes this look different than your usual smoky eye? Aaron finished the lids with lip gloss for high shine.
The nails and toes were painted with Essie After School Boy Blazer ($8), a polished Fall shade, but lead manicurist Julie Kandalec says darks will still be on-trend for nails come Spring.
The theme on BCBG Max Azria's Spring 2014 runway? Creating the "ideal" look. The focus was beautiful waves and luminous skin, keeping the models looking cool, effortless, yet put-together. We went backstage before the show to interview Laurent Philippon, lead stylist for Bumble and Bumble, who wrapped the hair around a curling iron to achieve those picture-perfect waves. Lead makeup artist Val Garland for Sephora Pro created an androgynous look and glowing skin, plus contoured the face using Marc Jacobs Beauty Perfection Powder Featherweight Foundation in darker shades instead of a bronzer.
