Beauty How-To

The trick to getting lipstick to last. Read More »

While many labels have shifted to favor the avant-garde face, Burberry Prorsum is generally a show at which beauty is held in high priority. The Burberry girl is, after all, inherently pretty in the most natural way. Think spokesmodel for the Body fragrance, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a woman on whom clothes seem superfluous — just a trenchcoat will do. Casual hair, a natural lip, and expertly blended neutral smokes all but comprise the Burberry muse. Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Preen’s Easy Runway ‘Do


See more videos on Modelinia.com

One of our favorite trends from the fall 2010 runways was the plethora of easy-going hairstyles. The epic, totally un-doable up-do was an unusual sight as high-maintenance hair faded into the distant fashion past. Even the most complicated styles rarely involved more than a little mousse and a rubber band! Check out the video above for a five-minute hairstyle stolen straight from Preen’s runway show and explained by stylist Luke Hersheson, the dude who first thought of the look.

Check This Out: Model Makeovers

Love runway makeup? And models sans fards? If you haven’t seen “Model Morphosis,” a new-ish T Magazine blog feature, you must check it out immediately. Photographer Greg Kessler captures models backstage as they arrive at shows, then snaps their transformations after they’ve sat in the chairs of some of the most major makeup artists in the world. While it is endlessly fascinating, sadly, it does not back up the popular misconception that models are plain Janes without the hair and makeup and designer threads. They’re actually completely gorgeous and striking. (And that’s why they’re models, folks!) After the jump, another before-and-after. [T Magazine Blog] Keep reading »

Pro Trick To Get Lips Their Darkest Aubergine

Besides all the signature zigzag prints and tribal silhouettes, the real star of Missoni‘s Fall 2010 show was (for me anyway), the deep, dark eggplant-hued lips the models sported in what MAC makeup artist Lucia Peroni called “A little bit Scottish, a little Masai, a little punk.” Sounds good to me. I’m a little obsessed because I’ve always been drawn to lip shades in blackberries and deep plums–must be my junior high goth roots–but Lucia’s mix is ultra arresting and looks really unique. To get the look she used MAC Eye Pencil in Ebony, mixed Lipsticks in Cyber and Hang-Up and blended them into the lips with a brush, then applied Matte on top to get rid of any and all shine. How ’bout that! Black eye liner to get your darkest plum! Love it. Will I be wearing this look to work Monday? Not bloody likely, but I may do some experimenting this weekend. Keep reading »

Hang Nails At Gareth Pugh

Models wore chain-embellished clothes at the Gareth Pugh show in Paris earlier this week, so nail pro Marian Newman for Creative Nail Design extended the look to their nails, too. These hanging chains are the latest in the recent crop of textured nails during 2010′s various fashion weeks. Keep reading to see the shorter “daytime” version of the look. Keep reading »

Shop The Products Makeup Artists Really Use Backstage

If you’re backstage beauty junkies like we are, you might wanna jump on this deal ASAP. MAC & Milk are definitely the cool kids during Fashion Week–Milk Studios founder/Creative Director Mazdack Rassi likens their space to MoMA as opposed to Bryant Park’s Met–and we love going behind the scenes to see what brilliant MAC makeup artists are slathering on all the gorgeous young things’ faces. While they tend to use products from the Pro line, which can be somewhat difficult for non-professionals to snag, this season they’ve developed a collection of backstage makeup kit staples available exclusively online. Some of the standouts that we’ll be ordering? Amelia and I are super obsessed with Strobe Cream, $29.50, a primer that makes even the dullest complexions look like they’re literally glowing, and you can’t go wrong with their Kohl Pencil in Smolder, $14.50, an intense, runway-worthy black, and Pro Lipstick in peachy nude Fleckletone, $14. Shop the entire collection here. Keep reading »
